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 in February and March.

The Huskies’ 26th Annual Winter Clinic will be held on Feb. 28 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., and the Advance Clinic is scheduled for March 5 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Both clinics will be held in the Costello Sports Complex Field House on the Gorham Campus of the University of Southern Maine.

The 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, which 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. Players need to wear appropriate attire, including sneakers, and bring their own playing equipment. The fee for the Annual Winter Clinic is $50.

The Advanced Clinic is for serious players in grades 9- 12 with aspirations to play collegiate baseball and will be limited to 40 participants. The morning instruction session will include pitching, hitting and defensive play. The afternoon session will consist of games in the spacious USM field house.

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 Advanced Clinic is $100. Players are asked to wear appropriate attire, including sneakers, and bring a lunch.
