(Central Islip, N.Y., Jan. 31, 2019) – The Long Island Ducks today announced the dates of the team’s annual Kids Baseball Clinics, presented by Stop & Shop, at Bethpage Ballpark. Children ages seven to 14 are invited to participate, and registration forms are now available by CLICKING HERE. Those interested can also call (631) 940-3825 ext. 102 to sign up.

The following are the dates for this year’s Kids Baseball Clinics:
