2013 FMBA "My First Pitch" pitching clinic with former Major League Pitcher Jason Dickson. 


Despite snow on the ground 40 kids enjoyed a pitching clinic lead by former MLB pitcher Jason Dickson held February 24th at the Currie Center performance gym.  Jason along with several FMBA coaches and Senior Royals helped introduce each athlete with the basic drills to help young pitchers begin to learn the fundamentals of pitching and good arm management.  FMBA president and coach Paul Hornibrook also took the time during the clinic to work with Rookie and Mosquito coaches to present the same material so that all coaches will be consistant in teaching the art of pitching.
