Baseball Hall of Famer Robbie Alomar is coming back to Prince Edward Island.
As part of the Toronto Blue Jays Baseball Academy, the former second baseman will be a guest instructor at a Blue Jays camp Sunday, Oct. 27 at the Stratford Soccer Complex.
There will be an instructional clinic as well as a coaches clinic/seminar.
The instructional clinic focuses on baseball fundamentals for ages eight to 14. Participants will receive a Blue Jays cap, T-shirt and manual. Registration is $65 plus taxes.
The camp, which runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., includes Alomar, his father Santos Alomar Sr., former Canadian Olympic Team and World Baseball Classic player TJ Burton, and other Blue Jays Academy staff.
Registration is available at http://bluejays.mlb.com/tor/baseball_academy/blue_jays_offseason_clinics.jsp .
The coaches’ clinic/seminar is for current or aspiring coaches and will take place Saturday, Oct. 26 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Holman Grand Hotel on Grafton Street.
The Alomars will be speaking for a couple hours followed by a question and answer session. At the end there will be a mix and mingle so that coaches can share ideas and have the chance to have a one-on-one conversation with the Alomars.
Registration fee is $30 and will be available at http://toronto.bluejays.mlb.com/tor/baseball_academy/index.jsp .
