Melrose Free Press : Melrose Recreation Director Frank Olivieri said that the annual youth baseball clinic held at Pine Banks Park will be run by the North Shore Navigators, a team in the New England Collegiate Baseball League (NECBL),

Olivieri said, features include Red Sox & Navigator games; great instruction over a 2-day clinic; lunches, tshirts and transportation to games; will be offered through the Navigators’ four-day clinic. In this case, the players from the actual team will be the ones coaching and working with the youngsters.

The Navigators’ four-day clinic at Pine Banks, which is scheduled for July 27 through July 30, will cost $185 for players aged 6 to 15, Olivieri said. Players can sign up now through the Recreation Department’s Web site at

“We’ve added an extra day, a North Shore Navigators’ game and we’re including transportation, chaperones, lunch and T-shirts,” he said. “I think all the residents will be pretty happy with what they’re going to be getting. For the most part, it was just a better direction for us to go.”

The Navigators, tied with the Newport Gulls as the all-time winningest team in the NECBL’s 15-year history with three titles, moved to Fraser Field in Lynn last year after previously playing in Holyoke, Mass. and Middletown, Conn. Peter Delani, a Melrose resident and the team’s general manager, said the team’s players come from colleges across the country.

“They’re all high-profile major league baseball prospects from University of Florida, Boston College, University of California-Davis,” Delani said. Prominent NECBL alumni include Minnesota Twins closer Joe Nathan and Tampa Rays starting pitcher Andy Sonnanstine.

Delani said the clinic will be staffed by himself, Lynn Classical High School varsity baseball coach Mike Zukowski, the Navigators’ staff and players. Also, the Red Sox’ Advance Scouting Coordinator Ben Crockett will be at the clinics and will give the participants a tour of Fenway Park and introduce them to Red Sox personnel when they attend a Red Sox game on the last day of the clinic. “The neat part is the partnership between us and Melrose Recreation [Dept.] and Malden, as well as the Red Sox,” Delani said.
