River Bats Give Pointers at the Library

River Bats Give Pointers at the Library

Members of the St. Cloud River Bats Baseball Team stopped by the Al Ringsmuth Public Library on Tuesday, June 14 to help kick off the Summer Reading Program with a baseball mini-camp.

River Bats infielder Kyle Steiner from Peoria, Arizona, pitcher Steven Swift from San Ramon, California, and manager Jon Hansen led the mini-camp. About thirty children gathered outside the library on a sunny morning and received instruction from the players on fielding, batting, and pitching.

Thanks to support from Regent Broadcasting, River Bats game tickets were given away in a drawing to the children. The kids had a great time working on their baseball skills and meeting the players.
