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.
The Live Positively Program promotes a healthy balance for youth. They are supporting education through scholarships, support for national active, healthy lifestyle programs and the popular My Coke Rewards for schools program. Coca-Cola sponsors Triple Play ”Boys & Girls Clubs of America's National after-school program. Triple Play educates kids on proper nutrition, exercise and teamwork, helping them make positive food choices and develop a healthy sense of self-reliance.
All the kids had a great time. They asked lots of questions at during the Q&A with Rusty Greer and a local dietician who was there to talk about healthy food for optimal sports performance.
