(UNFORTUNATELY TUESDAY NIGHTS HAVE CLOSED BUT THURSDAY NIGHT STILL HAS PLENTY OF SPOTS OPEN). Your fees include a t-shirt, hat, and a season ending pizza party. All the equipment is provided as well as spare helmets, bats and gloves. This program does not have an age limit as many players grow at different levels but please understand that this is your son or daughters first experience with baseball. There is no competition and the program is instructional. We will try to hold inter-program scrimmages later in the season.
In addition, we ask our travel baseball teams to participate in at least one practice as mentors and helpers. This is a great experience for both your player and the older player who has to teach. We get a ton of positive feedback from this mentoring process.
We are proud to announce that Dick’s Sporting Goods is sponsoring our T-Ball program this season and in turn will be donating a ton of equipment including helmets, tees, bats, bases, etc. We look forward to seeing your son or daughter on the field! Thank you!
