Mitch Clegg, the former University of Massachusetts pitcher, made some changes to his offseason conditioning program this past winter that he hopes will pay off as he pursues his dream of playing in the major leagues.

Instead of working out on his own, Clegg's new routine called for visiting Mike Boyle Strength & Conditioning four times a week for 15 weeks. Other athletes who have sought out Boyle in the past include Nomar Garciaparra, Cam Neely, Ray Bourque and Rich Hill, a Boston native who pitched for the Red Sox in 2010.

"It is in Woburn, in my hometown, so I really had no excuse not to go," said Clegg, a minor league pitcher in the Washington Nationals' farm system. "I slimmed down and put on some muscle mass. I needed it. I feel as good as I have in a couple of years."
