Pitchers & Catchers Report! Joe Kwong Clinics

Calling all MV Pitchers & Catchers!
 
How the heck are you? It's that time of year again! Let's get ready to take the mound and dominate all those pesky batters out there. How do we do that? Work on our mechanics, get stronger, and have fun getting better.
 
It doesn't matter if you've never pitched before or were the ace of your Majors staff -- we all can improve. This Sunday, there will be a bunch of top notch high school and college pitchers helping you out, including Jack Loder from College of Marin, Jesse Gassman from Redwood High, Jacob Young from Marin Academy, and Noah Solem & Kai Christman from Tam High. As for catchers -- Jake Gassman from Redwood will be there to work on skills behind the plate. 
 
If you think you don't need a little pre-season brush up -- why is it that every professional pitcher and catcher feels Spring training is an absolute must to work on their mechanics? 
 
Want to hit spots more consistently? Bump up your velocity? Get that batter whiffing at thin air when you fling your offspeed? And catchers -- what about blocking scuds, calling pitches, framing. Come to the clinic, get some awesome advice for free -- and guess what? We'll be holding clinics throughout the season so you can keep improving!
 
Here are the details:
We'll meet in deep right field at Friends Field South from 10:30-noon on Sunday, 3/10.
Please do not bother games or practices in progress.
 
As always, PITCHERS bring your mitt, cleats -- a good attitude -- and make sure to bring someone to catch for you!  
 
Let me repeat to newbie parents & coaches:
DO NOT LET A PITCHER ATTEND WITHOUT SOMEONE TO CATCH FOR HIM/HER!
 
And CATCHERSbring your gear: face masks, chest protectors, leggings and catcher's mitts.


TIP OF THE WEEK: "You think, you stink!" -- A lot of thoughts go through a pitcher's head because everything starts with him/her from a dead stop. It's not like basketball where you're running and reacting. Too many thoughts during a game can really mess up a pitcher. Think during practice. But during game time, play with mindless freedom. Consistent practice (and coming to clinics) will help you to stop thinking and stinking during crunchtime.
 
Rock and fire!
 
Coach Joe
