KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Grounders, pop flies, and line drives.

More than 100 kids are on the baseball field this week in Kalamazoo.

The 11th Annual Baseball Clinic hosted by Derek Jeter's Turn 2 Foundation began on Tuesday.

The kids are certainly having fun--about 125 of them between the ages of 7 and 13.

Throughout the clinic, local coaches help kids work on their throwing, hitting, catching, and running techniques.

But the clinic's leaders say it's about much more than that.

The camp also focuses on teaching young people important life lessons to help them achieve their goals and reach their potential.

Thursday, Jeter's sister--who leads the Turn 2 Foundation--about the family's commitment to Kalamazoo kids.

"This is our hometown; this is where me and Derek grew up, and our family lived here for a very long time, and so I think it's very important to give back to the community that you've taken so much from growing up," Sharlee Jeter said. "The kids here--we want to make sure we provide opportunities for them to live healthy, exercise, have fun playing baseball, but also spending time learning life lessons."

The 4-day clinic will wrap up Friday with family and friends joining the students for an awards ceremony.

Sharlee says the foundation looks forward to coming back to Kalamazoo every year.
