KRSL Hosts 16th Annual Fred White Memorial Royals Alumni Youth Baseball Clinic
KRSL Russell Radio hosted the 16th Annual Fred White Memorial Royals Alumni Youth Baseball Clinic Wednesday afternoon at Memorial Park.
Boys and girls ages seven through 15 learned about baseball from former Kansas City Royals players Les Norman, Dennis Leonard and Al Fitzmorris.
Local fastpitch softball coach Haley Jackson worked with girls on softball pitching.
A few members of the Russell-Victoria High School baseball team also assisted.
The clinic finished up with an autograph session with the Royals players.
The annual clinic is named in honor of former Royals radio broadcaster and KRSL Russell Radio owner Fred White who passed away in 2013.
KRSL Russell Radio thanks all the area sponsors that make the clinic possible each year, especially Russell Recreation Commission for the use of the Memorial Park ballfields, Klema's Apple Market for the free lunch and Redeem Designs for the shirts.
