Minnesota Twins youth baseball clinic coming to Mitchell

The 'Play Ball!' Minnesota Youth Baseball Clinic is set to take place at Cadwell Park on May 21


MITCHELL — The Minnesota Twins will conduct a free Play Ball! Minnesota youth baseball clinic in Mitchell on Saturday, May 21, 2022.

Hosted by the Mitchell Avengers, the baseball clinic will take place at Cadwell Park from 9-11 a.m.

Presented by Great River Energy, Play Ball! Minnesota youth clinics are for boys and girls ages 6-12.

Play Ball! Minnesota instructors will provide all the necessary equipment for the clinic; however, players should bring their gloves. Participants must complete the waiver at check-in before participating.

The Play Ball! Minnesota Youth Clinics are available to participants and communities free of charge; funding is provided by the Twins Community Fund and Great River Energy.


In the event of inclement weather, the clinic will be relocated to the Davison County 4-H Grounds.

“For more than 60 years, Twins youth clinics have provided baseball instruction to young players in communities throughout Twins Territory,” said Kristin Rortvedt, Executive Director of the Twins Community Fund said in a statement. “We’re proud to continue this tradition for a new generation of ballplayers.”

Created in 1961 by longtime Twins scout Angelo Giuliani, the clinic program serves to promote baseball and softball to boys and girls throughout the region. Since the beginning of the program, more than 800,000 youth have participated in a Twins youth clinic.
