MLB Urban Youth Academy

It’s probable that  a few of you saw the Double Header from the Urban Invitational on MLB Network this last weekend.  It was unfortunate that I lagged so hard on my research of the event as I would have: 1) attended this year like I did last year, and 2) Made a post here for So Cal residents to be notified. 

 

It’s too bad, the whole thing was very fun.  Got to see a bunch of old timers and recent pros (Kenny Lofton and Frank Robinson), saw some competitive baseball in February, and got to support a great cause.

For those of you who don’t know about the Urban Youth Academy, check out their website.  Pretty great things they’re doing here.  It’s just unfortunate they operate under a veil of secrecy.  Not even 3 weeks ago I checked their website for info on the upcoming event and there was nothing.  Oh well, maybe next year. 

 

This brings up an unfortunate fact about me.  I live in Westminster (just over the wall from Midway City actually) and I am a devoted fan of ALL things baseball but I have something to confess.  I have NEVER attended EITHER a Long Beach State or CS Fullerton baseball game.  Let alone one between the two.  For my own sanity, I will resist listing all the EVERYDAY MLB players that I could have seen over the last 10 years.  Both schools are very close and their best, most important games take place on the weekends anyway.  I have no excuse.  Sadly this year, the only match-up between the two takes place the same weekend I will be at Chavez Ravine for the Freeway Series. 

 

With that said, for all of those who live in this area, don’t be like me (or at least who I have been up to this point), take advantage of what is the most Baseball Rich region in the country.  Here’s hoping to see some of you out there.
