TITANS BASEBALL WELCOMES MT. ST. JOE COACHES
TITANS BASEBALL CLUB GETS A VISIT FROM ONE OF THE MOST STORIED HIGH SCHOOL BASEBALL PROGRAMS IN THE STATE
When Maryland Baseball fans hear Professional Baseball Players names like: Mark Teixeira, Gavin Floyd, Steve Clevenger, what comes to mind is Mount Saint Joseph High School. On June 17, 2015 the Titans Baseball Club was fortunate enough to have MSJ Head Varsity Baseball Coach Jody Harris, Varsity Assistant Coach Rod Cameron and Head JV Coach Phil Kraska join our 11U & 12U baseball practice at Landon C. Burns Field.
What a great night to be a Titan, three top high school coaches ran baseball drills, interacted with all the players and explained the do’s and don’ts of the game of baseball. Coach Harris explained to the boys it is very important to be a well-rounded athlete, which starts with being a great student in school. He went on to say that Teixeira, Floyd and Clevenger were all great students in the classroom which allowed more doors to be opened after high school.
As all three coaches ran separate drills, they all had the same message. The message was to respect the game, practice solid fundamentals, practice as if you were playing in a real game and hold yourself to a higher standard.
It is experiences like this that we should be grateful for the more experienced coaches to be willing to sacrifice their time to help teach our young ball players how to improve their skill set and be better young men.
Sincere Thanks to Coach Jody Harris, Coach Rod Cameron and Coach Phil Kraska. GO GAELS!
