Summer Parks and Rec t-ball a real hit with area kids


Area children, ages 5 and 6, huddled at the end of their t-ball practice. Baseball coordinator and Coach Jeff Graewin and his Assistant Coach Drew Scott reminding the kids that the game is all about fun and learning. “We teach them how to hit, throw, catch and field the ball,” explained Graewin. (Photos by Caitlin Bittner)

Caleb Nonn, 5, steps up to bat ready to hit one out of the park. Although he’s still perfecting his technique, he managed to get the ball in just the right spot so he could make it to first base.

Nicolas Fiskaali, 6, fires the ball toward first base during a drill. He and his parents recently moved to the United States from Denmark and this is his first time playing the sport.

Jeff Graewin (left) helped each of the players set up for their big moments at home plate. From how to hold the bat to the importance of wearing a helmet, Graewin made sure that the kids could have lots of fun, but in a safe way. Be sure to check out our Facebook page for more t-ball photos!
