Youngstown -- The Youngstown State baseball program continued its community outreach by providing a free baseball clinic to a 12-year-old boys team from nearby Poland, Ohio, last week.

The baseball staff worked with the team for an hour-and-a-half on various hitting and pitching aspects.

YSU head coach Rich Pasquale provided a hitting lecture, and the team was broken into three groups that rotated through hitting stations.

Coach Craig Antush spoke on pitching mechanics and oversaw a series of pitching drills. Pasquale and Antush were joined at the clinic by assistant coach Bill Herman and YSU freshman infielder Phil Lipari, who is a graduate of Poland High.

Following the instruction, the team was given a tour of the Stambaugh Stadium weight room and the YSU Baseball locker room. There, Pasquale emphasized good sportsmanship and the importance of being a good teammate.

The group finished the day by eating pizza in the Miladore Family Penguin Club Loge in Stambaugh Stadium.
