It’s almost that time of year again, when school is long over and summer baseball is in full swing.
To commemorate the season, Half Hollow Hills High School West varsity baseball coach Tom Migliozzi is hosting the 12th-annual Colts Baseball Summer Clinic for one week only from June 25-29.
The clinic, which is open to kids ages 7-14 entering grades 2-9 as of September 2018, costs $140 per camper and is held at the 375 Wolf Hill Road high school in Dix Hills.
The goal of the camp, as it’s always been, is help high school athletes succeed on the baseball diamond and have a shot at making their high school’s team.
The clinic starts each morning at 9 a.m. (early drop-off starts at 8:30 a.m.).
First there’s a morning stretch and run, then there’s the clinic of the day and practice before lunch at 11:20 a.m. The second half of the day involves a full game between each age group, and review and raffles before pick up at 1:30 p.m.
All proceeds go toward equipment and uniforms for the nonprofit Colts Baseball Booster Club. Since the clinic is not a Half Hollow Hills School District activity, checks can be made out to the Colts Baseball Booster Club at P.O. Box 1133 Melville, New York 11747.
Campers should bring a hat, gloves, cleat, baseball pants, drinks and sunblock. Bringing a bagged lunch is optional; there will be a cash concession with hot dogs, snacks, Gatorade and water.
