All sessions will consist of drill work and evaluation of each participant’s swing. In addition to general mechanics, areas of focus will be situational offense, bunting, and the mental aspect of hitting. Instruction will come from assistant coaches Brian Karlet and Billy Tecklenburg as well as current Herd players.
The league will be divided into two age brackets- 7 through 12 and 13 through 18. Cost is $100 for all four sessions or $25 per session. Payment will be accepted in the form of cash or check and will be accepted the day of instruction.
Ages 7 through 12 will be from 6:00-7:30 p.m. and ages 13-18 will receive instruction from 7:30-9:00 p.m.
