AA Baseball Clinics (6-8 years) - Fall and Winter

This clinic-based program is perfect for any players graduating from T-Ball or in AA looking to prepare for the upcoming spring and master the skills of the next level they?ll face. Best suited for players with some experience from Born to Play or Hill House Little League, our instructors can challenge these sluggers and dirt dogs to advanced drills and games that will have them ready for coach pitching, making defensive outs, and hitting for extra bases.

 

Indoor Batting Practice (8-12 years) - Winter

Normally any passionate local players may need to travel well outside the city to find a suitable indoor batting cage to get some swings in and develop their hitting stroke. This program, however, allows our athletes to stay right here in Beacon Hill by taking advantage of Hill House's own exclusive cage set-up in our Joy Street gym. With a tunnel-net and other specialized equipment and our head Little League coaches, players can keep their fundamentals sharp through the off-season with tee work and live BP. Other baseball activity will be practiced in our new Winter Baseball Clinic offering later in the week.

 

Winter Baseball Clinic (9-12 years) - Winter

Perfect for any players at the AAA or Majors levels to stay in ‘baseball shape’ through the long New England winter at our indoor facility on Joy Street. Led by our top Little League instructors, players will be led through advanced drills to cover all the fundamentals and ensure this group develops good habits and proper mechanics heading into the upcoming season. As always, an emphasis be placed on having fun through challenging games and situational play.
