Derek Jeter and the New York Yankees may have been in Cleveland to take on the Indians, but over 100 area children enjoyed a fun-filled day of playing ball courtesy of The Captain at the Al Oerter Recreation Center in Flushing last Thursday.

Turn 2, Jeter’s foundation, hosted its 15th annual youth baseball clinic giving young ballplayers a chance to fine-tune their hitting, catching and throwing skills under the eye of volunteer coaches.

Additionally, emergency room physician and best-selling author Dr. Sampson Davis served as the day’s motivational speaker, urging kids to strive to be great both on the field and in the game of life.

Welcome to the discussion.
