Live Positively Youth Baseball Clinic

We were invited to the Youth Ballpark next to the Ballpark in Arlington by Coca-Cola for the inaugural Live Positively Get the Ball Rolling  Youth Clinic with Texas Rangers Legend Rusty Greer.

We were attending the baseball clinic with The Boys & Girls Club of Arlington.   Each kid had glove in hand and despite the Texas heat, was ready to play ball.
