Prepare for the upcoming baseball and softball seasons. Swing analysis, live pitching and other techniques are a part of this program. The advanced, intermediate and beginner hitters can all benefit from this step-by-step approach to learning. Pitchers work on the form needed to increase the speed of the fastball and protect their throwing arm. Boys learn the rocker step for pitching as well as various age-appropriate grips. Girls learn the windmill form of pitching and different grips. Catchers are taught how to help get strike calls for their team. Different techniques to throw out base runners are also included. Fielding pop-ups, balls in the dirt and bunts with the proper form can catch any coach’s attention. Bring a mitt, bat and labeled water bottle. No Class on March 27.
