GORHAM — The University of Southern Maine Huskies’ baseball team and coaching staff, led by head coach Ed Flaherty, will be hosting a pair of clinics during the months of February and March.

The Huskies’ 25th Annual Winter Clinic will be held on Feb. 22 between 9 a.m. and noon, while the Huskies’ Advanced Clinic will be held on March 7 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Both clinics will be hosted in the Costello Sports Complex Fieldhouse on the Gorham Campus of USM.

The 25th Annual Winter Clinic is geared towards players in grades 3-8. Flaherty will give a short presentation on what it takes to be successful in baseball that will include topics such as skill development, work ethic, academics and social development. Players will then participate in a series of drilling stations that teach the fundamentals of hitting, base running, pitching, infield play and outfield play.

The fee is $50.

The Huskies’ Advanced Clinic is for serious players in grades 9-12 with aspirations to play intercollegiate baseball. The Huskies’ Advanced Clinic will be limited to 40 participants.

The morning session will include pitching, hitting and defensive play, along with testing of running speed and arm strength. The afternoon session will consist of games in the spacious USM fieldhouse.

Position players will receive at least two live plate appearances, and pitchers will throw a minimum of one inning. Players will be evaluated and given feedback.

The fee for the Huskies’ Advanced Clinic is $100.

Players need to wear appropriate attire, including sneakers, and pack a lunch.
