A field near McCauley Boys & Girls Club was a sea of blue and white on Saturday, August 16th. Nearly 40 kids, a cross section from each of our Clubs, were swinging bats and throwing balls in their Rookie League t-shirts and Jays Care hats. But they weren’t there alone. They were joined by four Blue Jays Alumni who had the kids completely enthralled. Jessie Barfield, Brian McRae, Devon White, Denis Coucher each led the kids through a station of baseball fundamentals.
They started the morning off with a warm up to get their muscles ready to play.
And of course, they practiced catching. The older kids even got an extra lesson in diving!
On behalf of our kids, we are so grateful to Jays Care and the Blue Jays for making this great day of learning and fun happen for our kids.by
