Baseball clinic

Players coach youth during baseball clinics at the DuBois Baseball Bank.

DuBOIS — The Penn State DuBois Baseball coaching staff and players will host the spring 2018 baseball clinics on Feb. 10-11 at The Baseball Bank, 309 Aspen Way, DuBois.

They’ll also be joined at the Pitching/Catching Clinic by special guest, TJ Gornati, who has played for the San Francisco Giants and the Toronto Blue Jays.

In these clinics, participants will work with the baseball team and coaching staff to learn the basic mechanics of hitting, fielding, and pitching, and take part in drills and activities to help them develop these skills. The hope is not only to develop better players but also to instill the discipline, respect, hard work, and self-worth values which are threaded throughout the baseball philosophy. Each participant will receive an evaluation form and the chance to win a team hat and shirt.
