Calling all Minor and Major Division Players!
Register Now for Pitching Clinic on Sunday, April 19, 2015


Northside is happy to partner with Nolan Shaffer of The Baseball Company to offer a pitching clinic for any interested Minor and Major Division player. Nolan played for four years at Bridgewater College where he excelled as a starting pitcher from his freshman through senior year. After retiring from professional play in 2013, he started the Baseball Company to help young players develop solid fundamentals and an understanding of the game .
When: Sunday April 19th
             1:00-2:00 Beginners
             2:00-3:00 Advanced
Where: Sutherland Field (below Hollymead Lower)

Beginner sessions are for players who have had no game pitching experience and Advanced sessions are only for players who have pitched in a game. Players may not sign up for both sessions.

Participants must be registered on a minor or major team for the spring 2015 season and must register in advance to participate in this clinic.  Registration is now closed.

We will not be able to accommodate walk on players the day of the clinic. A confirmation e-mail with details will be sent to all registered participants a few days prior to the clinic.
This clinic is offered free of charge and is a great way to get extra pitching instruction.
