“The Urban Youth Academy is focused on baseball and softball instruction for boys and girls who typically wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford or have access to this type of programming,” said Cameron Satterwhite, Assistant Director of the Urban Youth Academy. “The Academy’s staff offers high level coaching and training to young people of all skill levels.”
