The Rutgers baseball program will hold its annual winter hitting clinic for high school players from Dec. 26-27 at the Rutgers Athletic Center. The clinic will feature intense instruction from the Rutgers Baseball coaching staff and players.
The two-day clinic will run from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. each day, with participants having the opportunity to receive instruction from legendary head coach Fred Hill, former All-American Glen Gardner, associate head coach Joe Litterio, assistant coach Casey Gaynor and volunteer assistant coach Tim Reilly . All four of the assistants played under Hill at Rutgers. Everyone will have the opportunity to participate in live batting practice and drills. Each player will go through numerous drills and informational stations aimed to develop personal skills. Proper mechanics will be demonstrated, strategy will be discussed, and numerous repetitions will be practiced.
The hitting clinic is open to players currently in grades 8-12, and will include individual instruction along with advice from the veteran coaching staff and Rutgers players. Hill, who enters his 30th year at the helm of the Rutgers program in 2013, has seen 43 of his players move on to professional baseball since 1998. The veteran mentor became the 16th active Division I head coach to earn 1,000 victories, achieving the prestigious feat during the 2010 season.
Located inside the RAC, on the University’s Livingston Campus in Piscataway, each member of the camp will enjoy the Scarlet Knights’ winter home which features three full-length batting cages complete with pitching machines and several soft toss and tee stations.
