GLL - 2018 Free Pitching Clinic-Baseball (rescheduled for 4/21)
Since weather didn't cooperate today, we have rescheduled this for next weekend.
Where: Georgetown LL Field 08
When: April 21st at 1pm-2:30pm
Georgetown Little League baseball families,
One of our own members is offering a great free opportunity for baseball players and coaches.
Our 50/70 manager Dan Naulty, who also happens to be a former Major League Pitcher and World Series Champion New York Yankee, will be offering a pitching clinic following our field-cleanup day on Saturday April 14.
Dan’s primary goal in providing this great opportunity is to help our players and coaches learn proper pitching form and technique that not just helps accuracy and velocity, but most importantly reduces stress on the arm and shoulder.
Dan will break down the form of pitching into basic but very powerful pieces that have come from both being a player and an astute student of the game – playing along with and against some of the greatest pitchers in the majors.
Having coached with Dan and seen him work with my two sons, I can personally vouch for Dan’s ability to communicate the often-debated concepts of pitching and make them seem like common sense.
Dan and I are hoping that you will join us on Saturday morning April 14, while we show our pride in GLL by working together to beautify our fields. Then after the clean-up at approximately 1PM the pitching clinic will last until approximately 2:30 PM.
We are recommending ages 11 and older for being most appropriate to get the most out of the clinic on April 14.
Welcome to the 2018 Little League Season! It’s hard to believe we are gearing up for another fun season at the ballpark! I hope you are as excited as we the Georgetown Little League Board are for this upcoming season! Teams are formed, uniforms ordered and practices are getting underway!
First and foremost, I want to thank all the people who have volunteered this year for our Little League. With just shy of 1400 kids, we recognize the amount of time this takes, and appreciate all that you do to help make the season go great!
Exciting things are happening at Georgetown Little League! We will be hosting a State Tournament this year! We will post more information with regards to dates and game times as it gets closer!
Every year we hold two field clean up days to brighten up our fields before the start of the season. This year, these dates are April 14th and 21st, 8:30am-12:30pm. We would really appreciate you and your family coming out to help clean up the fields. The more people we have, the less time it takes. These fields are for our kids. Come one day, or come both, but just come out. Volunteering even for an hour not only helps our fields, but teaches our kids about the value of what we have here!
Thanks again for being a part of the Georgetown Little League Family!

“2017-18 Baseball Pitcher Training
with former Major League Pitcher Rick Kreuger”
When-Where: Monday-Friday 4:30 to 9:30pm; Sat. all day. KPS training facility on the second floor of Georgetown Bible Church located at 4114 Baldwin, Hudsonville, MI. (the SW corner of Baldwin & 40th Ave. in Georgetown Township). This is our 20th year of professional pitching instruction!!
Who: 7 yrs. through Pro Players (Bring your bat, glove, extra shirt, sports drink, & sneakers…no spikes)
Description: Sessions are 45 minute lessons. Private, semi-private, and group lessons are available. A former Major League pitcher (Boston Red Sox, Cleveland Indians, & Tokyo Giants), and Cornerstone University Head Coach, Coach Kreuger will be your sole pitching instructor. As a former pitcher, Coach Kreuger knows the disciplines that a pitcher must deal with and has been very successful in teaching many pitchers the physical and mental mechanics needed to avoid injury and add 5-7 mph or more in velocity with control. Video analysis is a critical component to pitching since one cannot see the fastest movement in sports with the naked eye. Your money is best spent in off season training versus indoor games… Pitching is a learned skill!

In the November 2017 GLL Board Meeting it was decided that Georgetown Little League would adopt the rule making it mandatory to wear a face mask when playing any infield position in the Softball Coach Pitch Division and above.
We feel that with the speed that the ball is thrown and hit, that facemasks have become a necessary part of the game to keep our girls safe from injury.
Along with adopting this rule, the board decided that each equipment bag for each team would include two facemasks for players that do not have a mask available when it is their time to play the infield; between the two teams, there would be enough to play a game.
