Fall Ball Season Closes 20th Season

For the 20th consecutive year a Fall Ball Instructional Program was offered for students in the Clearfield Area School District. Sponsored by the Clearfield Baseball Association and the VFW Post 1785, the program had 33 players (grades 7-12) participating this year. There were 19 boys on the 7th and 8th grade team while the older team (grades 9-12) had 14. The younger team practiced on Mondays and Wednesdays and the older boys on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Games against outside competition were scheduled mostly on the weekends. Due to poor weather this Fall, both teams were able to play only an abbreviated schedule. The 7-8 team played 6 games (record of 2-3-1) plus numerous intrasquad contests. The 9-12 team played 7 games with a record of 4-3. The main focus was on fundamentals with special emphasis on the mental part of baseball. For the younger team, which had many players just coming out of little league, making the adjustment to the larger field was crucial. Practices were very well attended, even on those nights when the weather was less than desirable. The Lawrence Township Rec Park was our home field.
