Introduce your child to baseball. Using our “iddy-biddy” equipment and some fun games, we’ll help your child learn throwing, catching, and hitting. Parent participation is part of the fun, so we encourage parents to join us. We recommend the players bring a glove. Please bring a bottle of water. If there is inclement weather class will be canceled for that session and made up at a later date.
