Blue Jays taking all they can from Pitch-A-Palooza conference

On their way down to Disney’s fabulous Swan and Dolphin Resort for the winter meetings, a large contingent of Toronto Blue Jays staff made a pit stop in Music City, USA, for a weekend at Pitch-A-Palooza, which is not just one of many amateur-baseball coaching clinics. In fact, it might just be the best amateur-baseball coaching clinic, and one that has caught the eye of several major-league organizations over the last few years.

General manager Ross Atkins attended the clinic, along with vice-president of baseball operations Ben Cherington, assistant GM Joe Sheehan, director of player development Gil Kim, pitching co-ordinator Jeff Ware, pitching coach Pete Walker, bullpen coach Dane Johnson, senior pitching advisor Rick Langford and special assistants Pat Hentgen and Paul Quantrill.
