Aspiring pitchers and catchers work on game

The start of official practice and the season does not start for over another month but a number of softball players got a head start this past Tuesday when the West Side Recreation and Park District held a free pitchers and catchers clinic at Franklin Field Complex.

All totaled 13 pitchers and catchers turned out for day one of the two hour clinic with former Taft High and current Charleston Southern catcher Caitlyn Emberson working with the three catchers.
