Learn to Play: A great introduction to baseball

“If there was magic in this world, it happened within sight of the three bases and home plate. Dreams for the kids in the stands, all wanting to don a uniform, kiss their mom’s goodbye, and wield their bats as enchanted weapons destined to knock the cover off the ball.”

Tee Morris

Learning to play baseball is one of the great joys of childhood.

Whether it is the chance to meet new friends, learn a life lesson or two or just have fun and get your knees dirty, everyone can get something out of the sport.

Learn to Play is the introductory division for Oakville Little League. There are no complex rules, no umpires and players don’t even need to have a baseball glove. Fun is guaranteed.

Skills are taught with a soft “squishy” ball for optimum safety. We teach kids how to catch, field, throw, run the bases and hit the ball.

All activities will take place on Saturday mornings at Cornwall Field, home to the famous Oakville Little League clubhouse, and last about 90 minutes. Each session will consist of skills training followed by a fun game, giving players a chance to practise what they have learned.

And as the famous Yankees catcher Yogi Berra said, “Little League baseball is a very good thing because it keeps the parents off the streets.”

See you at the field!
