“It was an opportunity for us to come out and reiterate the importance of an education through sports,” Coach Melendez said. “We want the kids to excel in their respective sports but never lose sight of the importance of getting a good education.”
In addition to the clinic, the Mustangs presented the little league with a gift card so that they can purchase some much-needed equipment.
