ST. LOUIS, MO, April 27, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Varsity Baseball Coaches at De Smet Jesuit High School will host a summer arm care and conditioning clinic for 5th through 8th grade players and their parents, July 17-19, 2017, at the De Smet High School upper baseball fields, 233 N.

The clinic will be taught by one of the most well-known arm care specialists in the State of Missouri, Travis Griffin, De Smet Varsity Pitching Coach and a personal arm care specialist for professional and Major League players. Griffin is a Certified Jaeger Long-Toss and full time pitching instructor at Balls N Strikes in Ballwin.
