Woodstock Little League offers the opportunity for all children ages 4 through 16 to play baseball, learn about sportsmanship and fair play and build new friendships. We are excited about the quality of volunteers we have each year who share a common purpose to provide a positive experience for all those who just want to play baseball.
Auburn High School Baseball Coach Eric Swedberg and his staff will be holding the 2nd Annual Auburn Rocket Baseball Catcher's Clinics during the month of December. These clinics are designed to teach the essentials of catching and prepare the players for their upcoming season. Players will work on specific drills and receive individual and group instruction on playing the position of catcher.
Workouts and skill instruction will include defining the role of the position, working with pitchers, grip, crouch, signs, plate angles, hand positions, pickoffs, throwing mechanics, framing/receiving, calling pitching, bunts, stance, glove and equipment maintenance, soft hands/tags, pop times, blocking, throwing to basis, backing up first and classroom Q & A.
There will be two sessions of workouts that will follow the same itinerary. Players can register for one or both sessions, with discounts available.
Dates/Times: Saturday December 27th, 6-8pm
Tuesday December 30th, 2-4pm
Location: AHS Gymnasium, Auburn High School, 99 Auburn Street, Auburn, MA
Ages: For players ages 8-18
Cost: $25/player for one session, $40/player for both sessions (20% sibling discount on total cost)
(Auburn Rocket Baseball T-shirt will be given to all participants, all players should wear sneakers and bring their own catcher's equipment)
