CORNER BROOK No matter how nasty the winter weather has been, minor baseball players are poised to snag some flies.
The Corner Brook Baseball Association is ready to roll out an indoor baseball program at the Pepsi Studio designed for players in both the 8-11 and 12-15 age brackets.
It is expected that at least six indoor sessions will be held, with the first one planned for April 1, and then once Jubilee Field dries out players will head to the diamond for the remainder of the spring baseball program.
Quality instruction will be provided by a group of local coaches led by former Olympian Frank Humber and seasoned coach Rob Myrden.
The mechanics of throwing, a big focus of the program and led by Humber, is a session designed whereby the coaches work with the players to ensure they are throwing properly and safely.
Myrden will lead his team of coaches in instructing hitting mechanics and the erection of an indoor batting tunnel is expected to help in this manner.
In the meantime, local baseball players shouldn’t wait until summer to register for a major event on the local baseball calendar this summer.
Jubilee Field in Corner Brook has been chosen as a site for one of the Toronto Blue Jays Honda Super Camps. Information about the camp can be found on the Blue Jays website and players can register online to ensure they secure a spot on the field July 24-25 when all the action unfolds.
