This weekend SOMBA players got the chance to work with the coach and players from Thompson Rivers University Wolfpack Baseball Team. Ray Chadwick, a former MLB starting pitcher for the California Angels has been the head coach of the TRU Wolfpack since 2003. SOMBA is excited to partner with the TRU Wolfpack to bring high performance baseball opportunities to the South Okanagan.
On Friday night, players worked on hitting skills at the Penticton Community Centre. Saturday afternoon, Coach Chadwick and his players ran drills to help SOMBA players with hitting, fielding, and throwing technique at the Adidas Sportsplex. SOMBA hopes to offer more programs like this in the upcoming year as we continue to bring high performance baseball to Penticton and the South Okanagan.
