Play Ball! Minnesota Coaches Conference

Each spring, Play Ball! Minnesota celebrates the start of the youth season by hosting the Play Ball! Minnesota Coaches Conference. Minnesota Twins alumni, members of the Twins front office and Play Ball! Minnesota members lead general and breakout sessions on a variety of timely and pertinent youth baseball and softball topics.

From first-timers to veterans, the conference is a great way to pick up new coaching skills to pass on to youth players. The conference is held at the home of the Twins, Target Field.
