WHO: Indian players Scott Atchison, Mike Aviles, Michael Bourn; 200 children from Canton Police Department/J Babe Stearn Center, BGC Lorain County and Cleveland Baseball Federation.  

WHAT: The Players Trust’s City Clinics program is a grass-roots campaign developed by – and featuring the active participation of – current Major Leaguers to promote the game of baseball to under-served children, ages 6-16, in select cities across the country.  

Children participating in these free clinics receive hands-on instruction from current and former pros in areas such as base running, pitching, hitting, throwing and fielding. During each session, City Clinics’ attendees also participate in a question and answer session with active Major Leaguers, and receive free T-shirts and autographs.  

The Players Trust is a charitable foundation created by the players to help those in need. Through the Players Trust, active Major Leaguers contribute their time, money and celebrity to call attention to important issues affecting those in need and to help encourage others to get involved in their own communities.
