Mets' Cliff Floyd
Stops by Kutsher's

MONTICELLO — July 29, 2005 – The New York Mets continued their longstanding tradition of helping young baseball players at Kutsher’s Sports Academy learn more about national pastime with two recent clinics.
Cliff Floyd, who had hit 23 home runs as of Wednesday and has been one of the National League’s best sluggers this season, led a clinic in front of dozens of awed campers back on July15. He gave them lessons on hitting and other aspects of the game.
Floyd also signed autographs and posed for pictures with dozens of the young campers.
In addition, Manny Acta, who is the Mets’ third base coach and infield coach, recently held one of the most acclaimed clinics of the summer. He taught the KSA campers an array of baseball skills, from fielding the ball to proper base running.
The KSA camp’s professional clinics are scheduled to continue through the final weeks of the season.
