The boys and girls of summer

It’s that time of year when parents and kids look forward to pitching, catching, batting, and playing America’s favorite game—baseball. There are numerous recreation leagues associated with the towns and cities throughout Lake and Sumter counties. Check county websites for information or call the local recreation director. As with most physical activities, there are plenty of benefits for boys and girls who enjoy being on the baseball field:

  • Being part of a team
  • Gaining confidence
  • Learning teamwork
  • Learning new skills
  • Improving mental and physical muscles
  • Gaining relationships with mentoring adults
  • Achieving success
  • Learning that losing a game isn’t a defeat
  • Appreciating the parents and friends who support you
  • Learning sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, sometimes it rains
  • Play ball!
