Oct. 11, 2016

NOTRE DAME, Ind. — The University of Notre Dame softball program is set to offer a special one night hitting clinic this November. Irish softball will guide clinic participants through a specialized session entitled `Hit Like The Irish Tonight on the Notre Dame campus from 7-9:30 p.m. (ET) on Nov. 15.

The two-and-a-half-hour offensive instructional session will provide clinic participants with lecture and video analysis, along with drill work tailored to improve swing mechanics. Weather permitting, the clinic session will take place at either Melissa Cook Stadium or inside the indoor batting cages at the Eck Baseball Stadium.

Notre Dame previously led the NCAA with a .357 batting average in 2014, and was sixth nationally with a .351 team clip in 2015.
