FORT MILL, S.C. - Ten-time Women's National Team alum Anna Kimbrell hosted a Homegrown Clinic as part of the USA Baseball Homegrown program at Pleasant Knoll Middle School on Saturday, April 22. A combined 56 kids across two sessions participated in the event, as Kimbrell led them through numerous baseball stations and a scrimmage, held a Q&A session, and took a group photo. Additionally, every participant received a signed poster at the end of the clinic.

“By hosting this clinic, I wanted to be able to give the kids in Fort Mill an opportunity I didn’t have," said Kimbrell. "I was fortunate to have some really great coaches as a kid, but I never got the chance to have instruction from someone or a group of people who have played baseball all over the world. I’m really glad USA Baseball came out to do this because it gives these kids a chance to see someone who has lived here their whole life and was able to get out and chase a dream. I hope that today gives them belief in themselves to go out and do something they really love to do.”

“I hope the kids took something positive away from today. I heard a lot of them say they learned a new way to do a relay, but maybe others took something from one of us about a change to make in their swing to help them get better. I hope they had a good time for one, but that they were also able to take away one good thing to help them improve their game. There were a lot of great coaches with a ton of knowledge here.”
