In this photo from August 2007, Red Sox legend Jim Rice gives some hands-on advice to Zhanel Priester, 11, in a morning baseball clinic at Colt Park in Hartford. Priester and more than 100 of her fellow Hartford Boys and Girls Club campers learned batting, catching and fielding tips from Rice and a half-dozen college and high school baseball coaches from Massachusetts in a Youth Baseball Clinic sponsored by Bank of America. Rice also talked with the kid and autographed baseballs.
