Baseball for li'l buckaroos

Very young players can grasp the basics of baseball in a new program.

In Little Buckaroo Baseball, for 4– and 5-year-old preschoolers, Encompass is teaming up with Bucky’s Baseball Academy for a three-week program that emphasizes the proper mechanics of baseball as well as social skills in team work and sharing.

Scheduled for 9 a.m. Friday, April 13, at Encompass in North Bend, it's a foundational class for children looking to move onto T-ball. Preschoolers will also learn proper base running, safety, hitting technique, throwing, fielding, catching, and fitness and agility.

Class will include a one-hour lesson at Bucky’s Baseball Academy and will be taught by former professional player Shane Cronin, owner of Cronin Baseball. Bucky’s Baseball Academy is located directly across the street from Encompass; students will be escorted to and from the academy.

Cost is $95.
