CASA COLINA CENTERS FOR REHABILTATION OFFERS ADDITIONAL DAYS AND EXPANDED HOURS FOR POPULAR TOMMY DAVIS BATTING CLINIC
Community Invited to Attend Tommy Davis Batting Clinic Every Tuesday and Thursday to Improve Swing and Reduce Common Baseball Injuries

POMONA, Calif. – Baseball players dream of hitting a grand slam in the ninth inning to win the big game. Unfortunately for some players that dream might never become a reality if they find themselves on the bench because of an injury. In its continued efforts to educate the community about sports injury prevention, Casa Colina Centers for Rehabilitation has teamed up with Los Angeles Dodgers’ legend and former two-time National League Batting Champion Tommy Davis to host the Tommy Davis Batting Clinic. The clinic takes place at Casa Colina Sports Medicine Center’s outside batting cage and inside its state-of-the-art sports gym. Two one-hour individual or group (three person maximum) sessions will be held every Tuesday and Thursday with the first session starting at 3:30 p.m. and the second session starting at 4:30pm, beginning on Thursday, March 4, 2010.

“We are excited to have a baseball legend like Tommy Davis provide his time and expertise to helping not only fans, but future baseball and softball stars,” said Felice L. Loverso, Ph.D., President & CEO of Casa Colina. “Our goal is to help our served communities reach their full potential by providing them the tools to prevent injuries and sharpen their skills.”

Davis is working with Casa Colina’s clinical staff to help players of all levels improve the way they play. Through step-by-step progressions, Tommy Davis and Casa Colina’s Sports Medicine team will demonstrate the movements to improve attendees’ swings and reduce the risk of common baseball injuries. The Tommy Davis Batting Clinic is ideal for kids ages 8 and up, adults of all ages, and coaches of all levels of play.

The batting sessions will focus on:
  • Building a solid foundation for competitive play
  • Finding the right grip
  • Adding speed and power to your swing
  • Reading all types of pitches better
  • Improving the mental approach to the game
  • Establishing a better batting stance and balance
  • Uncovering muscle imbalances and weaknesses
  • Setting limits to avoid overtraining/injuries
  • Developing a consistent training routine
“By participants gaining a better understanding of proper mechanics, mental and physical performance levels and proper training techniques, we are confident that we can help attendees achieve the type of results that will enable them to become a stronger athlete,” said Dr. Christopher Chalian, orthopedic surgeon and program medical director of Casa Colina Sports Medicine Center.
