UCSD Tritons Clinic:
Coach Mike Ramazzotti and Coach Dane Stankiewicz along with some UCSD Triton ballplayers will be hosting a league wide clinic.

Clinic for Coaches and Parents:
As we ramp closer to Opening Day, the tendency is to turn the volume up in anticipation of the season ahead. At LJYB, we’d like to turn the volume down and be a bit more measured in our approach. This is our means of attempting to do so. Houston Astros’ coach Mike Ramazzotti is returning for a second year in a row and he will spend 30 minutes preparing our coaches and parents for the season ahead with some of his experiences and teachings geared toward the emotional and mental game of baseball.
Date: Sunday, February 5th
Ages: Coaches and Parents
Location: Bronco Field Bleachers
As a refresher, we recorded Ram at our fields on February 12,2022 so the information continues to be relevant. Please be prepared for a few curse words along the way and a hefty dose of knowledge about the best way to interact with your kids and their friends as a baseball parent. Please enjoy: https://www.leagueathletics.com/Default.asp?org=LJYB.org
If you have any questions about the proper perspective, we'd recommend digging in for 30 minutes as Houston Astros coach Mike Ramazzotti shares his outlook on the game.
