              Fall and Winter Catching Clinics (6-Week)

 

2015 Winter 6-Week Catching Clinics: Those who register for the clinic will learn the techniques of catching including framing, blocking, throwing along with other catching techniques. The clinics will include expert training and will include no more than 5 students. There will most likely be only one clinic this year due to Coach Gedman's schedule.

Clinics conducted by Coach Rich Gedman. Gedman is a Worcester native and former former Major League Baseball catcher who played 13 season with the Boston Red Sox (1980-90), Houston Astros (1990-91) and St. Louis Cardinals (1991-92). Coach Gedman was the Sporting News' AL Rookie of the Year (1981), a two time All-Star (1985-86). In his career, Coach Gedman batted .252 with 88 home runs, 382 RBI, 331 runs, 176 doubles, 12 triples, and three stolen bases in 1033 games. As a catcher, he compiled a .984 fielding percentage with 5274 putouts, 431 assists and 92 errors in 980 games.

NOTE: Payment in full is due at time of registration or at the beginning of the first class. Only snow/weather dates will be rescheduled or credited, credit/refunds will not be given for randomly missed classes. Clinic has a mix of Tuesday & Wednesday nights. Players must sign up for all 6 weeks.
