Approximately 125 Bryant Athletic Association baseball players participated in a baseball clinic hosted by Bryant High School baseball coach Kirk Bock and conducted with the Bryant Hornets team on Saturday, March 7.
The clinic stressed baseball fundamentals to assist players in preparing for the upcoming youth baseball season at Ashley Park. More than 725 players ranging in ages from 4-15 years-old have registered to play in the upcoming season.
The BAA preseason tournament will begin March 26. Opening ceremonies are scheduled for Saturday, April 18.
“We are thrilled about the continued cooperation of the Bryant High School baseball program and the Bryant Athletic Association,” said Darren Hurt, BAA president. “Coach Bock has a gift for teaching baseball. The players that participated in the clinic will benefit from his advice.”
According to Hurt, the BAA baseball program plans to continue to grow as the league will move to the new Bishop Park facilities in 2010.
“We are simply booked to the maximum for field space at our current facility,” he said. “We look forward to expanding the baseball program at the new facility.”
