January 23rd, 2022

Good morning Clippers,

Well it looks like winter is officially here.  A foot of snow last weekend and today we are scheduled to get another 3-6 inches of snow.  I always enjoy this time of year though as it means two things.  One, I am able to hit the slopes for some good skiing and two spring is right around the corner.  In fact, we are less than 1 month away from officially starting our baseball season on February 21st.  This season has all the makings to be one heck of a year and I can’t wait to get rolling.

This past weekend I attended the Ohio High School Baseball Coaches Association clinic in Columbus.  It was a great event and I was able to talk to multiple college coaches gathering some new ideas to help push us to the next level.  From baserunning, to approaches at the plate to upper body weight lifting, these new ideas can help us score more runs and win more baseball games.

Other notes and dates to be aware of:

Open Cages:
We have open cages Monday and Thursday this week.  We had a very good workout on Thursday and will continue to combine lifting, hitting and speed/power workouts.  If we have a snow day open cage for that day is also cancelled.

Pitching Clinics:

Today is our second scheduled pitching clinic.  Of course we are due 3-6 inches of snow throughout the day so the coaches will monitor the weather and roads and make a decision on whether to keep it on or not.  As always we will err on the side of caution.

Schedules:

No updates to the schedule this week.  I am continuing to work on the JV schedule and will most likely be able to pick up games close to our start date.

Canal Park:

I received a call from the Rubberducks about playing in their showcase on April 23rd.  Playing at Canal Park is a great experience and I’m excited to get to participate again.  As of right now we are scheduled to play Alliance at 10 AM on Saturday the 23rd.  The opponent may change but our time slot is most likely locked in.

Stay safe and Go Clippers!!!
