Baseball announces dates for annual youth clinics

HAVERFORD, Pa. – For the 23rd consecutive year, Haverford College will hold a series of baseball clinics for children ages 7 to 14. The college's baseball team will provide instruction on a specific skill -- hitting, pitching, baserunning, infield or outfield play -- in each of the six two-hour clinics.

All of the clinics are held in Haverford College's Alumni Field House, and parking is available in the south visitor's lot.

Each two-hour clinic is $30 per participant, and registration will be available at the door. For those interested in pre-registering for all six clinics at a discounted rate of $150 per participant, please send your check (made payable to "Haverford College") along with your name, address, phone number, and e-mail address to:  Dave Beccaria, Head Baseball Coach, Haverford College, 370 Lancaster Avenue, Haverford, PA 19041.
