Hammer’s Holiday Homerun - Dec 20th 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
The PWYBA is very pleased to host a baseball skills clinic with athletes from Hammer Residences on Saturday, December 20, 4:00pm - 5:30pm, at the Central Middle School Dome.
Hammer is a 91 year-old non-profit organization that supports individuals with developmental disabilities. Former Minnesota Twin, Scott Leius, will be leading the clinic with help from PWYBA coaches and players.
Hammer’s mission is to provide individuals with developmental disabilities the opportunity to experience life to its fullest. Through innovative programs, Hammer helps create stable, secure home environments that deeply enrich the quality of life for the individuals they support. Hammer's administrative office is located in Wayzata right next to Village Chevrolet. The individuals they support live in the cities of Wayzata, Minnetonka, St. Louis Park, Golden Valley, Plymouth, Crystal, Edina, Eden Prairie, New Hope, and Maple Grove. Currently, Hammer supports over 274 individuals in homes and apartments and an additional 1200 through other programs.
Everyone is welcome to volunteer, watch and cheer on the fun.
On-line registration and the 2014 / 2015 winter dome schedule is now available on the Clinic Registration page.

The Plymouth Wayzata Youth Baseball Association is a 501(C)(3) charity. Not all baseball associations are like ours. Many years ago, the PWYBA organizers decided that, as a charitable organization, we could give back the maximum to our baseball programs and fields. As we approach the corporate fundraising season, we would like to make you aware that you may be able to donate to the PWYBA easily through your work.
