CARY, N.C. – USA Baseball today announced that Tokyo 2020 Olympic silver medalist and three-time USA Baseball alum Tim Federowicz will host a Homegrown Clinic at Apex High School in Apex, North Carolina, on Saturday, November 13, 2021 from 1-3 p.m.
The event is free and open to 150 kids aged 5-12 from the greater Triangle area. Parents can register their kids for the Homegrown Clinic here.
USA Baseball Homegrown Clinics are designed to introduce kids to the fundamentals of baseball and softball in a fun, non-competitive, community-based environment. Participants will get outside to learn and play America's pastime alongside a Team USA alum from their hometown.
Federowicz played for the Apex High School Cougars from 2002-2005 before moving on to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where he was named a First-Team Freshman All-American. After playing for the Collegiate National Team in 2006, he was drafted by the Boston Red Sox in the seventh round of the 2008 MLB First Year Player Draft, played eight seasons in Major League Baseball, and earned a silver medal for Team USA at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 in August.
During the event, participants will go through various stations manned by members of the Cougar’s baseball and softball programs, including baserunning, catching/throwing, fielding, and a home run derby. Additionally, they will participate in a Q&A session and play in a modified scrimmage with Federowicz. Every child who attends will also receive a t-shirt and a poster commemorating the event.
USA Baseball will implement the COVID-19 protocols mandated by the local government for all participants and attendees during the Homegrown Clinic.
Members of the media are invited to attend and will be required to follow the required COVID-19 protocols. To RSVP for the event, members of the media may fill out a credential application here.
