With the Junior American Legion Kansas State Tournament starting this Wednesday, the A Iola Indians held a fundraising event on Monday. The event was designed as a baseball clinic for younger ball players to improve their skills in pitching, hitting and throwing. 

The turnout of 25 kids exceeded the expectations of 20, and the money raised will be going to help pay for accommodations at the Topeka tournament

Other than raising money, Indians team manager John Taylor said the clinic’s purpose is to get the youngsters familiar with the Indians squad.
