This 5-day clinic at Middleton Extra Innings covers the fundamentals of baseball including hitting, fielding, pitching, throwing and base-running. Players are separated into age groups and rotated through different stations. Each station is designed to teach players a different skill and is taught by Extra Innings instructors in their area of expertise.
The clinic is open to all kids ages 7-12. The clinic starts on Monday, February 15 thru Friday, February 19 from 8:30 AM to 12:30 AM. Only $125 per person.
We need to get all the players that are planning on playing in the 2016 baseball season registered, so that we can begin the drafting of teams beginning with the Majors and followed by the other divisions. Please try and get your children registered as soon as possible. If you have any questions, please contact DNLL Player Agent Stan Gesualdi at

Concussion and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury, or TBI, cause by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head that can change the way your brain normally works. Concussions can also occur from a fall or blow to the body that casuses the head and brain to move quickly back and forth. Health care professionals may describe a concussion as "mild" brain injury because concussions are usually not life threatening. Even so, their effects can be serious.
