Two MLB coaches from the Houston Astros are coming to Fairbanks for a one-day kids camp for baseball players ages 9 to 18.
Hitting instructor Troy Snitker and pitching coach Bill Murphy will be in the Golden Heart City on Nov. 20 to headline the Professional Coaches Baseball Clinic at Lathrop High School.
The camp will take place from 4:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and be split into two age groups – high school and youth. Cost is $95 per player.
This is your chance to receive professional instruction from MLB coaches.
The Houston Astros are three-time defending AL West Division champions and winners of the World Series in 2017. They are back in the playoffs this year.
Snitker, the son of Atlanta Braves manager Brian Snitker, was added to the Astros Major League coaching staff as one of their hitting coaches in 2018.
Murphy finished his first season as Houston's minor league pitching coordinator and his fourth overall season with the organization.
This is a rare opportunity to rub elbows with MLB coaches and learn the game from elite professionals.
These are the guys shaping today's Big Leaguers from one of the game's most dominate teams.
This will be the third time the Professional Coaches Baseball Clinic has come to Fairbanks, thanks to the Alliance for Support of American Legion Baseball in Alaska, a non-profit organization dedicated to the development of Alaska baseball players all over The Last Frontier.
