LaTROY HAWKINS & KENNY LOFTON RETURN HOME TO HOST FREE YOUTH CLINIC IN GARY, INDIANA
On July 25, Still Got Game Foundation founding board members, LaTroy Hawkins of Gary, IN, and Kenny Lofton of E. Chicago, IN, returned home to host a free SGGF youth clinic for more than 100 kids from Gary and East Chicago, IN and surrounding areas. Our dynamic duo were joined by some of their former pro baseball-playing friends, including Hall of Famer, Jim Thome. Also on hand were Michael Bowden, Tim Byrdak and Marcus Nettles. Once again, this SGGF clinic was organized by our good friends at the Cal Ripken Sr. Foundation. This special day allowed LaTroy and Kenny a chance to reconnect with family and friends, while sharing their love and passion for the game of baseball with local youth.

STILL GOT GAME PROVIDES K.C. KIDS AND FAMILIES
WITH A PRIVATE TOUR OF THE NEGRO LEAGUES BASEBALL MUSEUM
On June 5, 2023, Still Got Game Foundation Executive Director, Melissa Persaud, and several board members, including LaTroy Hawkins and Kenny Lofton, traveled to Kansas City, MO, where the Foundation played host to 60 local youth and their families for an exclusive tour of the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum. The private tour was led by NLBM President, Bob Kendrick. Mr. Kendrick is the foremost authority on the history of the Negro Leagues and their role in the dawning of America's civil rights movement. In addition to learning about the intense levels of segregation faced by Black baseball players of the era, guests had a chance to hear the personal stories of LaTroy and Kenny. The two Major League baseball veterans overcame many obstacles on their journey from East Chicago/Gary IN to successful big league careers that lasted a combined 38 seasons.
