Chicago Baseball & Educational Academy (CBEA) and Baseball for All have partnered together to produce a six-week baseball training camp for girls ages 10-18. Girls will register to attend six, two-hour sessions, at CBEA’s facilities on the campus of the University of Illinois at Chicago. Girls will receive professional instruction from professional coaches and athletes.
As part of Chicago Baseball & Education Academy (CBEA) hosting the Baseball for All girls camp at Curtis Granderson Stadium, CBEA will host a panel of women leading in sports. The panel includes women who stand out as leaders and have prominent roles in the front office of large sports institutions.
Please join Curtis Granderson and our Advisory Council as we raise awareness of the work being done at the Chicago Baseball and Educational Academy (CBEA) while enjoying the MLB All-Star Game at the upscale sports bar, Theory, in River North.
