Girls Pitching Clinic Rescheduled

Apr 21, 2018
11:00 A.M.
Danny Bond Field at DCHS

The DeKalb Tee Ball, Coach Pitch, and Girls Fast Pitch Softball Programs are teaming up with DCHS Tigerette Coach Danny Fish for a pitching clinic. It has been rescheduled to Saturday, April 21 from 11:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. for girls interested in being a pitcher for fast pitch softball. The pitching clinic will be held at the Danny Bond Field at DCHS. Any girl from 7 to 15 years of age is welcome to participate. There is no charge for the clinic. Coach Fish along with his team and other coaches he has worked with in the past will be at the clinic to provide instruction. The idea is to get enough girls interested in pitching to organize a kid pitch league instead of again having machine pitch and better prepare them for play at the middle and high school level.
