The 2020 YSF Major League Coaches Clinic held on Saturday, January 25th in Puerto Peñasco was one of, if not the most successful clinics yet! The final count had over 150 kids in attendance, 9 coaches from the major leagues, and the teams that drove from El Golfo and Sonoyta. With numbers like these, how could it not be a success!
The Youth Sports Foundation of Puerto Peñasco would like to thank: Pete Hartmann, Troy Pearce, J.D. Ramirez, Mitch Talbit, Javier Gamboa, Juan Medina, Jack Spradlin, Leo Acosta, and Brian McNichol for donating their time to help the children of Peñasco to better their baseball skills. We also thank the local coaches who took time of their schedules to help make this clinic a success.
Thank you Pete Hartmann for asking for and receiving all sports equipment donations and making sure they were delivered. and Maria Garcia who without her organization this clinic would not have been a great success!
Thank you as well to the following sponsors: Gringo Travel who donated the dinner for the coaches at Manny’s and makes traveling in Mexico easier for the gringos, Sonoran Resorts who graciously donated condos to the coaches and their families, Boo Bar who is always there to help with equipment storage and snack and beverages, Rocky Point 360 who makes sure I get this right, Head Out to Rocky Point for helping to bring all the equipment to Rocky Point, Pro Alliance Insurance and Rosie Glover who does a great job as our MC, the City of Puerto Peñasco, the Municipal Sports Office, Max’s Restaurant, Manny’s Restaurant, Reggie’s 8/12 for their breakfast burritos, Coffee Point, Gua Gua’s for all the beverages for the kids and coaches, and La Arena for sponsoring the Meet and Greet on Friday night. A special thanks to all the parents! Without them taking their children to practice, to their games, and to our clinic, this baseball clinic would not be as successful.
Next year we will be celebrating our 13 year anniversary. If anyone would like to help sponsor this event, please contact Rick Busa at 638.112-4399 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org, Pete Hartmann at 602-705-5698 or email him at email@example.com.

On behalf of The Youth Sports Foundation of Puerto Peñasco, I would like to thank everyone who participated in this event and all the sponsors that donated their time and money to make this event happen. With the success of this year’s clinic, next year will be even bigger and better. See you
