UOG extends free high school baseball program

UOG’s Free High School Baseball Program has been extended for a few more weeks. Players looking to further education and still be able to play ball are encouraged to come out and take part in the event.

Bill Bennett, UOG Head Coach, told KUAM Sports, “We’ve had anywhere from 8 to 10 players come out. High school players come out every Saturday and go through some various stunts and activities that they normally wouldn’t see in their high school league. We encourage all high school players or kids that are going to be high school players to come out and have some fun and play baseball Saturday morning at 9:00 am at the George Washington Baseball Field.”

COVID-19 protocols are in place, masks must be worn during non workout times. There will be temperature checks and participants are asked to come early to sign in.

Bennett said, “We’re working on throwing and then we’ll be working on hitting. Maybe the outside pitch and the off speed pitch and we’ll also be working on fielding, one hand fielding and using paddles and different things to get the kids to be a little bit more proficient. So we’re going a little bit deeper. I wouldn’t say they’re called fundamentals but we’re going deeper into some of the body movements the kids need to learn.”

For more info check out the UOG Facebook page or contact the University of Guam Athletic Department. Or just show up at the GW Baseball Field the next 3 Saturday’s at 9:00 am.
