Dear Coach:

I hope this letter finds you and your program doing well.  On Saturday, January 7th and Sunday, January 8th (see attached flyer) we will be hosting a baseball clinic at Dixon High School between Wilmington and Jacksonville.  The 7th is a Pitcher/Catcher Clinic and the 8th is a Hitting Clinic.  I would like to invite your players to attend this unique preseason opportunity. This is a great way for your players to begin to prepare for you upcoming season.  As a veteran of high school and college coaching I know how important it is for players to hit the ground running this spring.  Our staff will consist of current (2 MLB pitchers confirmed), former professional players, and professional scouts.  Confirmed staff is listed below:

Shawn Armstrong- 2016 MLB Pitcher - Cleveland Indians

Mike Wright – 2016 MLB Pitcher - Baltimore Orioles

Jack Reinheimer – 2016 Triple A All Star – SS Arizona Diamondbacks

Chase McDonald – Double A 1B – Houston Astros

Seth Simmons – Triple A Pitcher - San Diego Padres

Evan Phillips – Former UNCW/Double A Pitcher - Atlanta Braves

Kyle Roller – 2015 Triple A MVP- Professional Player – New York Yankees/Tampa Rays

Zach Wright – Former Minor Leaguer - Anaheim Angels

Stephen Batts – Former Minor Leaguer - Philadelphia Phillies

Blaine Kinsley – Strength Coach – St Louis Cardinals

Jeff  Stevens – Former Minor League Catcher - Atlanta Braves

Billy Best – Former D1 Coach and Present Professional Scout - Atlanta Braves

Neil Avent – Former D1 Coach and Present Professional Scout - Oakland A’s

Nick Branon – Former D1 Coach and Present Professional Scout - San Diego Padres

Each clinic will provide players with “hands on experience” from a professional staff.  Our goal is to reinforce the fundamentals of the game that are being instilled by you on a daily basis.  This is not a showcase event!  No 60’s, arm grades, hit grades, etc.  Players will be exposed to drills and fundamentals that lead to success on the field.  Video analysis will be used at each clinic. 

Please feel free to make copies and distribute the attached brochure.  If you are free on the January 7 and 8, I would love for you to come as my guest.  Thank you for all you do for the great game of baseball!  You may contact me at [email protected]
