Keith Gurwell, who’s helped scores of young softball players hone their skills on the diamond, is organizing a weekly clinic starting Sept. 19 at the Allen Community College activities building.

Gurwell and others are offering the clinic free of charge to any youngsters ages 8-18, with instruction ranging from the fundamental basics to more advanced training practices.

The clinics will run from 1 to 3 p.m. each Sunday through the fall, Gurwell said, with several area volunteers helping run the classes.

Players are asked to bring their gloves and bats if possible.

For more information, call Gurwell at 620-212-5096, Brian Rutherford at 620-363-2807, Kirsti Rodriguez at 620-228-7572, Megan Ermel at 620-365-1819, David Taylor at 620-228-1811 or Alicia Rutherford at 620-365-0419.

This is the 16th year Gurwell, et al, have offered the clinic.
