St. Clair County Community College will host a Skippers pitching clinic with special guest Major League Baseball pitcher Paul Fry on Saturday, Jan. 21, from 10 to 11:30 a.m. in the SC4 Fieldhouse.
The camp is open to the first 50 registrants ages 8-18. The cost is $20 with proceeds benefiting Skippers Athletics. Registration is available online at stclair.nbsstore.net/specialty-baseball-pitching-clinic. Questions can be directed to SC4 Athletics at firstname.lastname@example.org or (810) 989-5670.
Fry was a dominant left-hander for the Skippers in the 2011 and 2013 seasons. Following the 2013 season, he was selected by the Seattle Mariners in the 17th round of the MLB Amateur Draft and was named the Seattle Mariners minor league “Relief Pitcher of The Year” in 2015.
Fry was traded to the Baltimore Orioles in 2017 and made his MLB debut against the Los Angeles Angels on June 28, 2018, throwing 1 and 2/3 scoreless innings while striking out three-time MVP and likely future MLB Hall of Fame hitter Mike Trout.
Fry remained with the Orioles for five seasons from 2018-2022 before being traded to the Arizona Diamondbacks during the summer of 2022.
His big-league career is still being written as he signed with the Toronto Blue Jays for the 2023 season.
