Baseball, during the spring in Hartford, has become a long-standing tradition dating back decades, and in many cases with families, generations. Throughout its very successful history, thousands and thousands of young participants have crafted and mastered their skills on the diamonds in our city’s southern landscape, thanks to the programs that our organization has created, specifically with our youth in mind. These talented young athletes play organized youth baseball seeking victories on the playing field, but more importantly, those who play in our system are taught by coaches and volunteers from the community, who emphasize important life skills over just wins, such as respecting others, honor, integrity and sportsmanship; skills needed in life far beyond the gates of our facilities.
When you join our programs, please know that the athlete in your family will always be in good hands. Participants will receive valuable knowledge about the sport of baseball from those same coaches and volunteers we’ve mentioned before, all of whom enjoy coaching educational athletics and working with their players. The goal, at the end of the day, is to make them better athletes on the field, but more importantly, better people in the community away from it. When you think about it, coaches should encourage everyone to just have fun, because that is what youth sports should always be about!
This season promises to be another action-packed year full of outstanding competition, excitement and fun for our great Hartford families. This should be true for every player, coach, family member, loyal fan and spectator, who show up to support their favorite player or team, and love the sport of baseball, just like we do. We invite everyone to join us this season and learn why our fields are known for not only building winners on the field, but also fabulous young people in our community, as well.
