Fall Baseball Instructional Clinic Registration Opens
Roland Park Baseball Leagues, Inc. is pleased to announce the return of our instructional Fall Ball program for the 2021 season. This year will mark the fifteenth season of our instructional program, and we are pleased to welcome new instructional partners for 2021. This year the program will be lead by Keith Kormanik and his team from KSK Developmental Camps. Keith is a fixture in the Baltimore area and is a director at Coppermine Field House who brings a wealth of experience as a longtime coach as a part of his many endeavors. Keith is also an alum of Gilman. Keith will be joined by Alex Robinson and Danny Blair among others. Alex is a pitcher who parleyed a successful college career at the University of Maryland into being drafted by the Twins in 2014 in the fifth round. Danny is an outfielder who attended Gilman and played for the University of South Carolina and the University of Tampa. All are looking forward to working with RPBL players this fall.
The program will be focused on all around skill development and is designed for non-travel players. This program is a great way to get ready for the next season, and we appreciate the willingness of Keith and his team to contribute to the development of our players.
The program will again be eight weeks, but note that this year's program will be on Saturdays instead of Sundays. The first Saturday will be September 11, 2021 continuing through October 30, 2021. We will have a rain date available, if needed. We are thankful to be able to host the program at St. Mary's Seminary located at the corner of Northern Parkway and Roland Avenue as we have for the last several years. The location presents a great locale for the program, and we appreciate the Seminary inviting us back year after year.
