Joplin High School Baseball Hosts Clinic for Little League Players | KSNF/KODE
Still need volunteers for the 2022 season
JOPLIN, Mo. — It’s not just high school baseball season fast approaching; Joplin Little League is also preparing for the start of its season,
On Saturday morning, the Little League players received help from the big boys. The Joplin High School baseball team held an assessment and clinic today at Kaminsky Gymnasium. The players helped determine which child would be placed on which team and also worked with the Little Leaguers to develop their skills.
The event organizers think it was a very positive thing for the kids who showed up, as they not only practiced, but also caught the attention of older role models.
“I think it’s great for them to be here with the high school students,” said Nathan Horton, president of the Joplin Little League. “Just to see that next level that maybe they hope to reach one day. A lot of these high school kids also grew up playing Little League, so it’s really great to see them giving back too.
Joplin High School baseball player Joe Jasper says, “It helps future generations for Joplin baseball. I also have a little brother who is here today, so he was super excited about it. So helping all these kids is just a cool thing to do.
Joplin Little League is still looking for some coaches and volunteers. If you are interested in helping, you can contact the league on their website.
As for the secondary team, it will play its Jamboree this Tuesday at home.
