In our continuing effort to support the growth of baseball programs in Ireland, the Baseball United Foundation is providing video analysis to Irish Little Leaguers and youth baseball players. In the videos below, coach Darren Gurney – aka “The Baseball Doctor” – has provided a young catcher in Ireland with some tips on how to improve his swing and his defensive skills. You may recognize the player as Paul Carey. Paul came over to America in 2015 to attend a Nike Baseball Camp, as part of our Baseball Exchange initiative.
Paul will be playing on the Irish National Baseball Team at the 2016 European Baseball Championships, to be held in Slovenia from July 23-31. If you’d like to support the Irish National Baseball Team and our ongoing programs to support youth baseball programs in Ireland, you can make a donation or buy official Irish Baseball caps and T-shirts in our online store!
We think Paul is doing a great job and with these tips from Coach Gurney, we look forward to seeing Paul improve his game even more!
