The park is located at 305 E. Gepford Parkway,
The clinic will be covering first base mechanics such as reading the ball, coming into pivot on a base hit and taking the runner into second.
There will be another station from inside the diamond about how to work the “B” position and get in the best view for the pick-off at first and the steal at second, how to cover the double play from the “B” and “C” positions.
There will be another station about how to work behind the plate and properly clear the catcher, head height and ball tracking and many more things that were not taught at the high school umpires clinic.
Attending the clinic will also qualify you to work Babe Ruth and Cal Ripken baseball and qualify you for state and regional tournaments.
