Reminder! Anthony Iapoce, the hitting coach of the Texas Rangers, will be hosting the inaugural New York Baseball Coaches Clinic on Dec. 10, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. at Division Avenue H.S., Levittown, L.I.
Iapoce, a product of St. Joseph’s parish, Astoria, and Msgr. McClancy H.S., East Elmhurst, played nine seasons in the minor leagues and just completed his second season as Rangers’ hitting coach.
In addition to New York Yankees third base coach Joe Espada giving a presentation, recent McClancy graduate and 2017 Cleveland Indians MLB draft pick Quentin Holmes will answer questions about the game.
The clinic covers all aspects of baseball – including hitting, pitching, fielding, catching, base running and the mental side of the game – and is open to coaches, parents and players.
