Marshall, MI (Vocus) June 8, 2010
Stay Sharp Training's all-skills baseball clinic for boys ages 9-14 will be held at the Marshall Athletic Fields on June 14, 15 and 16 from 9 a.m. to noon. The softball clinic for girls ages 9-14 is scheduled for Monday, June 14 from 1-3 p.m., also at the athletic fields.
At the baseball clinic, Stay Sharp founder Tom Sharpley and a team of former and current collegiate baseball players will work with the boys, in groups based on age and skill level, on batting, fielding, base-running and pitching. There also will be position-specific instruction. The registration fee for the three-day clinic is $140, or $50 per day. Attendance all three days is recommended. Registrations will be accepted at the clinic, with a parent or legal guardian present to sign a waiver.
Sharpley recently announced that he will manage a comprehensive travel baseball program for the 2011 season. The clinic will be a good opportunity for boys to be initially evaluated by the Stay Sharp team prior to official tryouts. Tryouts for the 11U to 14U teams will be in August. Sharpley plans to put together at least one team in each age group.
At the softball clinic, Sharpley and former and current collegiate baseball players will work with the girls, in groups based on age and skill level, on batting and fielding. Kellogg Community College Softball Coach Russ Bortell will be a guest instructor. He has been a college coach for more than 30 years. The registration fee for the clinic is $34. Registration will be accepted on the day of the clinic, with a parent or legal guardian present to sign a waiver.
The clinics are sponsored by Sunshine Toyota, the Hazar-Bestos Corporation and JW Public Relations.
