US baseball legends here for baseball clinics
Joe Logan, a former player with the Montreal Expos and coach of the Orlando Reds, will accompany Griffey on this trip.
The baseball legends will conduct a series of baseball clinics in Manila and Cebu with Filipino coaches and players from different age groups and representing local leagues and programs throughout the country.
Clinics for coaches will focus on teaching the basics of teamwork and sportsmanship, identifying and developing talent, and leading practices and clinics.
Clinics for players will focus on developing fundamental baseball skills hitting, pitching, and fielding.
