SYS Workouts A Go
Whaler varsity baseball coach Sean Crowley has made arrangements for a series of wintertime workouts at SYS. These sessions, for baseball players 13-and-up, will make use of the facility’s batting cages, arena court and pitching lanes for seven Sundays between January 11 and the start of practice in March.
Pierson middle school and high school coaches will be on hand to supervise the workouts which are scheduled from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. on January 11, 18 and 25, February 1 and 8, and March 1 and 8. There is a $90 fee to participate in all the sessions and a $20-a-day drop-in option.
Coach Crowley has also asked Dr. Steve Petruccelli, a local chiropractor and former collegiate pitcher, to provide specialized training and video analysis for players interested in those additional services.
Open Gym Nights
Meanwhile, the Lady Whalers’ new varsity coach, Melissa Edwards, has opted to keep her players closer to home, setting up sessions in the Pierson gym following home varsity basketball games. Those workouts are free and open to softball players 7-and-up; the next one will be held Tuesday, January 6 after the Lady Whalers’ match-up with Mercy .
Giving their time to the community, Coach Edwards and her varsity players will be leading the Little League’s wintertime softball clinics once they start next month.
