HAMBURG, NY – Under the direction of head coach Jim Pernick, the Hilbert College baseball team hosted a late-summer baseball clinic August 27 and 28 at the baseball field on Hilbert's campus.

The event was open to young men with two different breakout instructional sessions each day. Boys aged 7–12 took advantage of the one-on-one instruction from 8:30–11:30am while the older boys (13-17 years) were involved from 12–3pm. 

A total of 26 athletes took part in the two-day event. Pernick and his Hilbert College players are looking forward to the Winter Clinic date set for Sunday, December 18. This one-day event will be held in the Hafner Recreation Center from 8:30am – 3pm. Please see attached (link) for Clinic information.
