The Concord University baseball team will conduct offensive and pitching and catching clinics on Dec. 8 at the Carter Center.

The pitching and catching camp will take place from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at a cost of $75 per player, while the offensive clinic will run from 1 to 4 p.m. at the same cost. There will be a $50 discount for attendees that participate in both instructional camps.

To register for either clinic or information about the camps, go to

The camps are designed for players at least eight years old up to those competing on the junior college level. The pitching camp will teach players the same progression checklist as the Mountain Lion pitchers and catchers.

The offensive clinic gives attendees the opportunity to be exposed to Concord’s approach to generating runs. From bunting to baserunning and everything in between, each participant will learn how Concord approaches the offensive game.

Participants must bring their own baseball equipment including a glove, bat, running shoes or turf shoes, hat and any other equipment they feel necessary to compete.

Head coach Andrew Wright, along with assistant coaches Devin Smith and Justin Willard, will be the head instructors for the camps. Former and current Concord baseball players will assist.

Questions regarding the camps should be directed to Wright via e-mail at or by calling 304-384-5332.

In 2013, the Mountain Lions set single-season school records for wins (36) and games played (56), in addition to winning the West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference championship and qualifying for the NCAA Tournament for the second time in three seasons.
