The MLB Play Ball Clinic took to Suplizio Field.

There were 350 to 400 kids ranging from five to 12 years old who took part in a skills clinic with the JUCO players.

The young ballplayers learned the fundamentals of pitching, hitting and defense. Players even signed autographs and gave out shirts.

"You never know. One signature could help a kid with their dream or make them want to play baseball more or want to play college baseball.," said Southern Idaho sophomore Mason Foltz. "You never know. It's just taking the opportunity out here for all of us, especially our team. We're focusing really on signing a lot of autographs, talking to a lot of kids and just getting out there."
