Head coach Scott Bradley and the players of the Princeton University Baseball Team held a free Baseball Clinic for 30 athletes of Special Olympics New Jersey. The clinic consisted of two Saturday night training sessions, held February 16 and 23 at the University’s Jadwin Gymnasium.
Athletes and coaches of all skill levels were invited to participate, with instruction geared towards each athlete’s ability. Coaching workshops were also offered.
The Princeton University baseball team’s clinic will lead to the future development of a Special Olympics New Jersey baseball league later this year.
Baseball is not currently a sport offered by Special Olympics program in the United States. It is scheduled to be an exhibition sport at the 2014 Special Olympics USA Games being held in New Jersey, and opportunities will exist for New Jersey baseball athletes at those Games.
