Former Major League baseball player and batting coach Milt Thompson conducted the inaugural Wardlaw + Hartridge Baseball Clinic on Dec. 2 at the school’s campus in Edison.

The clinic included a morning session for middle school players and an afternoon session for high school players.

The former outfielder and World Series winning batting coach provided instructions on many fundamental skills, including base running, throwing, fielding and batting. Thompson also shared motivational words for the young ballplayers, with an emphasis on commitment, hard work and practice.
