PERHAM --This is the 52nd year the Minnesota Twins, the Twins Community Fund and PlayBall! Minnesota have offered free baseball clinics for youth in Minnesota.

Central Minnesota Credit Union applied to host and sponsor the event in Perham, because it centers a strong region for baseball with many leagues amongst all ages.

Jay Brown, who worked for the Chicago White Sox and now the Twins organization, after a college career at Minnesota State University-Mankato and Pat. Collins, head baseball coach at Chisago Lakes High School and a member of the Twins organization, taught fundamentals of fielding, pitching and more to the kids who attended.
