Rivière-du-Loup Municipal Baseball Stadium hosts very special matches at the end of August, when the best baseball players under the age of 16 in the province will visit to present a baseball clinic for women. And compete against local teams.
It will be a great opportunity for baseball players from the region to see Alex-Ann Gamache at work in the uniform of the Quebec Team. The Saint-Antonin athlete, developed by the Sphinxes of Rivière-du-Loup upper secondary school, is the only representative of Bas-Saint-Laurent in this category at the provincial level.
The very special weekend takes place on 21 and 22 August. On Saturday, a match between Équipe Québec and a team of U15 A-stars from Bas-Saint-Laurent, at 16.00, will begin with a training session before the match in the early afternoon. On Sunday, a baseball clinic for women will host Team Quebec players around noon. Two other matches will then be presented at 13.00 and 15.30.
Please note that a special guest, Karine Gagné, formerly a member of the national baseball team, will also be present during the Sunday clinic. The athlete, established in Rimouski for five years, has agreed to share his journey with young athletes. She will also take the opportunity to give them valuable advice.
The purpose of the event is to promote baseball for women in the region. The organizing committee hopes that it will be able to attract as many players as possible to this activity.
