Spring is finally here, which means that baseball season is, too! 

Sheetz, the popular American convenience store chain, is partnering up with Ripken Baseball to bring youth baseball clinics to Philadelphia, Virginia, Maryland, Ohio, North Carolina, and West Virginia. The clinics begin on April 10 and will continue through June 1, aiming to get kids outdoors and to teach them the fundamentals of baseball.

Players will work on important baseball techniques such as fielding, hitting, and throwing with Ripken Baseball instructors. Once playtime is over, kids will receive a Sheetz treat, fruit, and a giveaway. Spanning across three hours, the Sheetz Community Clinics presented by Ripken Baseball will take place at the following markets and dates, with exact timing and locations subject to change:
