PITTSBURGH - The University of Pittsburgh baseball program will host a pair of clinics this fall at the Petersen Sports Complex. Head coach Joe Jordano and staff will offer two Advanced Select Clinics, offering a skills session, evaluation and training.
“These clinics are designed for the player who has a desire to play baseball at the collegiate level,” said Jordano, a seven-time coach of the year. “These weekends will provide exposure to the entire University of Pittsburgh staff as well as other schools in the region. These clinics will also provide great instruction, valuable information for any player that is looking forward to playing at the next level. It will be a very productive baseball weekend for all of our participants.”
Both clinics will be held at Charles L. Cost Field, with the first taking place on Sept. 29-30 and the second being held on Oct. 20-21, from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. each day. The cost of each clinic is $195 for one position and $245 for two positions. Early registration is encouraged and once a position is filled, no further players will be added to that position.
The Pitt coaching staff has led the Panthers to four straight conference tournament appearances and has numerous players currently playing in the professional ranks.
“This is an exciting time for the University of Pittsburgh and our baseball program,” Jordano said. “Our transition into the prestigious Atlantic Coast Conference has begun. We will be full members of the ACC as of July 1, 2013. We cannot wait but we look forward to our final season in the very competitive Big East Conference. Over the past 11 seasons we have had close to 50 players sign professional contracts. Simply put….WE DEVELOP PLAYERS! I am confident that if you choose to participate in this event, you will have a great experience.”
