Alexandria Baseball Season Begins with Manager's Clinic

Two dozen Alexandria Little League managers and coaches reported for Spring Training this past Saturday, February 11, 2017, at the league’s inaugural manager’s clinic, run by Primetime Baseball and hosted at Ft. Myer.

The clinic’s purpose was to offer managers and assistant coaches an opportunity to deepen their knowledge of baseball and learn age-appropriate coaching techniques and drills. Over time, the goal is to prepare Alexandria Little league coaches to teach correct mechanics, make practice fun, and offer players consistent guidance as they grow and develop.

Prime Time co-owners John Skaggs and Chris Berset put together a terrific program. Eric Mathis, MS, lead athletic trainer at George C. Marshall High School, led a safety discussion focusing on the recognition and treatment of an array of athletic injuries, ranging from abrasions and concussions to joint injuries. Coaches also divided into groups to discuss proper infielding, hitting, and pitching/throwing techniques, led by Skaggs, Berset and Aaron Tarr, Marshall High School's varsity baseball coach. Skaggs wrapped up the day with tips on how to run practices.

Thanks to All president Gus Chiarello and the entire ALL board for sponsoring the event, which was organized by Paul Miller, Bill Evanina, Darrell Wilson and Steve Sternberg.  ALL safety officer, Dawn Bauman, supplied safety tips and vital information on league injury reporting policies. Many thanks to Andy Regan for hosting the clinic – and organizing lunch – at Ft. Myer.
