Nearly seventy students in grades Kindergarten-7th enjoyed A's Kid's Camp June 6-7th. Clarinda A's players worked with students on various baseball skills during the two days. The event concluded with "sliding practice" on the tarp. An additional camp will be held in Bedford on June 19th for grades 6-12.
They may have been "Here For the Beer", but the team comprised of Jones, McCall, Phillips and Gillespie took home the trophy at the A's 1st Annual Trivia Night. November 17 over eighty community members braved the ice and snow for a chance to compete in the A's trivia contest. Lots of laughs were enjoyed by all through seven rounds of trivia questions. In the end it all came down to the final question- With a wager of twenty points, team "Here for the Beer" successfully named all four Monopoly railroads to win the game. Thank you to all ten teams who attended and supported the Clarinda Iowa A's Baseball program! Special thanks also to Clarinda Country Club and Weinreich Barbecue.
