The Mansfield University baseball program will host five sessions of its Holiday Baseball Clinics this year, including a Mini Camp option for those seeking a more intensified experience.

A long-time stocking stuffer tradition, the five sessions are broken down into age groups of 5-6, 7-8, 9-11, 12-14 and 15-18 and are offered Dec. 28 and 29. Registration for all clinics will be held in Decker Gymnasium. Indoor facilities include Decker Gymnasium and Kelchner Fitness Center.

Under the direction of first-year Mountaineer head coach Andy Chalot, the coaching staff and the Mountaineer baseball team, the clinics have proven to be one of the most popular post-Christmas activities for area baseball players.

The Hitting Clinic provides participants with one-on-one instruction, drill work, and live hitting in the area’s only indoor batting cages.

The Pitching Clinic is designed to work on breaking down the mechanics of pitching, along with instruction, drill work, live mound work and radar gun analysis.

The Mini-Camp provides a full day of hitting, defense, specific position development, base running, strength and agility training as well as the mental aspects of the game.

Sessions are designed so that you may attend two a day for a full day experience. Costs for the clinics are $50 for the hitting/pitching clinic and $60 for the Mini Camp per player per session. Registration is available by calling Andy Chalot at 570-662-4458. Call for team rates.
