A total of 40 players took part in the University of Guam’s “Summer 2022 Baseball Clinics” held last Thursday and Friday at the Capitol Hill Softball Field.

Triton Baseball Team head coach Roke Alcantara said after the two-day clinic they’ve zeroed on two prospects—Ton Narita and Isaiah Teigita.

The coach said Narita and Teigita are utility players who can play any position and both have really good fundamentals.

Aside from the two Alcantara said that his group in general was impressed with what the 40 players who took part in the clinic brought to the table.

“Extremely talented and I was very impressed with their fundamentals and arm strength. That this is an awesome opportunity for them if they are passionate about the sports we offer and are committed to pursuing their education with a university that is so close to home.”

On the baseball clinic part, Alcantara said they taught the fundamentals of baseball like how to properly warm-up, and stretch as well as pointers on fielding defense and drills for hitting.

After the two-day clinic on Saipan, Alcantara’s team boarded a plane to Tinian and also conducted a clinic there.

“We also planted the seeds with those potential scholar-athletes that are going into their senior year of high school,” he said.

Joining Alcantara in UOG’s “Summer 2022 Baseball Clinics” on Saipan and Tinian were UOG Enrollment Management & Student Success dean Lawrence Camacho, UOG Athletics director Douglas Palmer, and UOG Residence Halls director Mark Mendiola.
