KIDS FIRST STEPS - Blast Ball (Baseball Fundamentals)

Batter UP on Thursday, January 10 – February 7, 4:00-5:00 pm at Grand Prairie School (north entrance). Blast Ball is the introduction to baseball for 4-5 year olds. The game is very safe, played with a soft bat and ball, no glove is needed. Each player bats once an inning and no scores are kept. Blast Ball consists of one base and it makes a “honking” noise when a player steps on it. Major League Baseball recognized Blast Ball as part of its campaign to promote the resurgence of baseball at the grass-roots level. (Bring your cameras). Kids Love IT!
