The Minnesota Twins youth baseball and softball clinic returns to Detroit Lakes this weekend.

This free event is open to the public and participants must be pre-registered to attend.

The clinic is for kids ages 6-12 as of July 24, 2021.

Created in 1961 by longtime Twins scout Angelo Giuliani, the clinic program serves as a way for Play Ball! Minnesota to promote baseball and softball to boys and girls throughout the Upper Midwest.

Play Ball! Minnesota Youth Clinics have always been available to participants for free. Additionally, there is no cost for a community to host a clinic. Any Upper Midwest community can apply to host a clinic. The program is presented in partnership with Great River Energy.


The Play Ball! Minnesota Youth Clinics are designed to teach fundamentals including hitting, throwing, and defense. Along with teaching fundamentals, clinics spread the joy and fun of baseball and softball.

The clinics are intended for boys and girls ages 6-12 and last 90 minutes. Participants can choose from two different clinic sessions - each session features the same instruction. Play Ball! Minnesota provides safe, youth-friendly, equipment. Youth participants are asked to bring their gloves.

The first session in DL is 9-10:30 a.m. at Snappy Park with the second session to follow from 10:30 a.m. to noon.

In case of inclement weather, the clinics will be indoors at the DLCCC.
