 Hi FCLL families,

This summer, a team of 11- and 12-year old boys that have grown up through Foster City Little League will be heading to Cooperstown, NY. This team, the Foster City Vipers, will be playing in a prestigious tournament at Cooperstown Dreams Park from July 24 - July 31.

To help fund raise for this trip, the Foster City Vipers will be holding a Skills Clinic (for Single A and Double AA) players and a Pitching Clinic (for AAA and Majors players) on Monday, Feb 17th (President’s Day) from 3pm - 5pm at Sea Cloud Park.

The AAA/Majors pitching clinic will be led by Coach Oz. 

Who’s Coach Oz? She was the only female to play Men's NCAA baseball between 2011-2015. She’s a two-time member of the US Women’s National Baseball Team, and she’s played professionally in men’s independent leagues and overseas. Her college baseball cap is enshrined in the National Baseball Hall of Fame.

The boys will be so excited to tell everyone in the museum that the hat belongs to their coach!

The A/AA skills clinic will be hosted by players from the Astros, Diamondbacks, Giants, and more*

* the FCLL Astros, Diamondbacks, and Giants. Not the Houston Astros, Arizona Diamondbacks, and SF Giants

The clinic will have drills to work on pitching, hitting, fielding, and base running with instructors from the Majors players**

** FCLL Majors Division, not MLB

These same instructors will be in the Hall of Fame Museum in Cooperstown this summer***

*** as tourists, not as HOF Inductees
