Apple Vacations and Iberostar Hotels & Resorts partnered together to sponsor the first of three Philadelphia Phillies Baseball 101 Clinics on May 27th!
This event is centered on the women-only participants, and allows them to partake in the interactive coaching from the Phillies coaches themselves. From fielding practice on the grass to batting and pitching instructions in the cages and bullpen, coaches such as Larry Bowa, Bob McClure, Steve Henderson, and John Mizerock offered their expertise to the crowd of 200 women.
Following the coaching stations, the women sat down to a catered lunch in the Diamond Club, where they were able to listen in on the Question and Answer session between Phillies Host Scott Palmer and Comcast SportsNet anchor Leslie Gudel, and two current players, John Mayberry, Jr., and Tony Gwynn, Jr.
As if the day wasn’t eventful enough, the crowd took to their own private tent party for baseball fare and beverage and to do what women do best: talk about the fantastic day had with old and new friends. Once the newly trained women finished with their dinner, the cost of the event allowed them tickets to the night game against the Colorado Rockies.
All in all, this was a wonderful activity from day to night. With two more 101 Clinics remaining, August 19th, and September 9th, it is no wonder they both have been sold out!
