The Nebraska baseball team is set to host a pair of events at the beginning of February, including the 2013 Nebraska Baseball Coaches Clinic and the Annual Husker Home Run Club Banquet.
This year's coaches clinic will feature Mike Scioscia, manager of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.
The clinic is set to take place on Saturday, Feb. 2, 2013, from 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. at both the Hawks Championship Center and the Haymarket Park Indoor Facility.
This clinic is for high school coaches, college coaches, youth baseball coaches and anyone else that wants to learn more about the game of baseball from the Husker coaching staff.
Coach Erstad will be joined by Associate Head Coach Will Bolt, Pitching Coach Ted Silva and volunteer assistant Jeff Christy. This group has a wealth of baseball knowledge and it is their goal to help you make your kids better baseball players.
