New for 2011! The Muscatine Parks and Recreation Department is offering BlastBall for 3 - 6 year olds. BlastBall is a fun and exciting version of T-Ball designed to introduce children to the game through learning the basics of baseball and softball. Players do not need gloves or any special equipment to play this game. Soft bats and balls are provided. Parental assistance during this program is encouraged. Staff will be on hand to lead groups in instruction and game play. This is a great program to prepare your child for T-Ball this summer!
