The clinic will take place at Stillman's on-campus baseball and softball facility, from 10:30 a.m. to noon with registration opening at 9:45 a.m., just before the Tigers take on the Talladega College Tornados at home.
Lunch will be served between the clinic and the Stillman baseball game and all participants will receive an event t-shirt, wristband and a bat and ball set to take home.
According to the press release, no previous baseball or softball experience is required for participation and the event is open to everyone between ages 5 and 12 years old. Registration is required and will be on-site, however, families are asked to sign-up for the free event here or through the link in the Stillman Athletics Twitter post promoting the event as well.
The MLB's Play Ball campaign is a partnership between the MLB, USA Baseball and USA Softball in hopes of spreading the game to younger generations.
