Alex Rodriguez, New York Yankees All-Star and fourth on baseball’s all-time home run list, hosted an interactive baseball clinic on June 16, 2015 at Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade as a part of his season-long program of visits to Clubs across the nation. Approximately 50 children from Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade attended the clinic.
As a child, Rodriguez attended Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade’s Hank Kline Club, where he participated in its baseball program. He flourished at the Club, remaining a member until the day he was drafted by the Seattle Mariners. He has been a supporter of Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade since he signed his first professional baseball contract in 1993.
