> Madras High is hosting both a softball clinic and a baseball clinic this weekend.
Throwing, catching and fielding will be taught in the 9 a.m. to noon Saturday session directed by Madras head coach Dick Souers. The clinic is priced at $15 per participant for Saturday alone or $20 for both Saturday and Sunday. Topics covered later Saturday will be Hitting and Bunting.
Pitching gets placed in the softball clinic's spotlight Sunday as a 1 to 5 p.m. event.
Souers said the emphasis on pitching will be such that pitchers must each provide their own catcher. The event is a fund-raising event for the softball Buffs.
Madras High's baseball team is also raising money by hosting a clinic Saturday.
The baseball version is going to run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. with a lunch included in the $25 per player price.
It is going to have room for dozens of participants.
