Phoenix to host interactive baseball exhibit

PHOENIX -- The only interactive spring training baseball exhibit in the nation will take over the Phoenix Convention Center this weekend.

"If some of the coaches want to bring their baseball teams in, we'll give instructional clinics to some of the youngsters," said former Chicago Cub and Hall of Famer Ferguson Jenkins.

In addition to meeting plenty of former and current players, in addition to Aaron Hill and Martin Prado of the Arizona Diamondbacks, kids will be able to learn about the game.

"They have batting cages," said Jenkins. "Kids will have an opportunity to throw. A lot of it is done with wiffle balls. We'll just go through the illustrations of what these ball players go through to play the game."

The Baseball City exhibit will be held Saturday and Sunday.
