The ISC’s Carroll Forbes Foundation (CFF) is co-sponsoring a pitching clinic in conjunction with Tim Lyon, USA Softball U23 Men’s National Team coach, to identify candidates for the squad.

The clinic will be held the week of July 12, 2021 in Denmark WI, at Circle Tap Bar & Grill, following the annual Boys of Summer tournament. Instructors will be Garry Mullican, Collin Hopkins and Tim Lyon.

“We’re happy to be helping with promotion of the game and sourcing pitching, which is the foundation of our sport,” said CFF committee chair Greg Nydick. “The CFF committee looks forward to helping people already doing great work to grow the game of fastball.”

The USA U23 team is forming in advance of the first-ever U23 World Championship to be held in Argentina in 2022.

Pitching coaches and others looking to apply for funding from the CFF committee should contact Greg Nydick for consideration.
