Phillies' Mike Adams Holds Annual Pitching Camp

Posted: Updated:

CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii Sports) - Philadelphia Phillies' relief pitcher Mike Adams still makes his offseason home here in Corpus Christi, and knows how important it is to give back to the next generation of talent.

That's why Adams held his fifth annual pitching clinic Saturday less than two weeks before he's set to report to spring training in Clearwater, FL. Adams and his brother Jason, owner of the Pro Performance Training Center, helped teach some of the area's young pitchers specific pitching techniques that they had picked up over the years.

Adams joined the Phillies when he signed a guaranteed two year deal with a team option for a third back in December. Adams said he would have liked to remain with the Texas Rangers, but the Rangers let him know up front they weren't willing to offer what he was looking for money-wise.

The former Sinton Pirate and Texas A&M-Kingsville Javelina is recovering from surgery to repair Thoratic Outlet Syndrome, which affects nerves in the body. Adams had a rib removed back in October to help fix the issue. He says he's good to go come spring training later this month.
