Legends For Youth

Former Major League ballplayers visited a local baseball camp Saturday.
Old Major Leaguers don't fade away. They spend their retirement years passing on their knowledge of the game to youngsters. That's what was happening in Sycamore Saturday. Several former players were there putting on a "Legends For Youth" clinic. Former White Sox Rob Kittle, former Red George Foster and former Cub Bill Campbell were some of the instructors. 250 kids were at this clinic. It's working with kids like these that helps these aging players rekindle their love for baseball.

"I love being with the kids. I think it's very important. I feel like a kid. I'm 56 years old , and I'm probably the biggest kid out here," says Ron Kittle, former player for the White Sox.

"It's always great with the kids interact with them teaching them life skills through baseball, and teaching them some things about baseball itself," says George Foster, former Red.

These clinics are put on by the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association, and by the Hanover Insurance Group and Crum-Halsted Insurance.
