Fall Pinto League (WBA)
The Pinto Fall Instructional Program is for incoming 2nd and 3rd graders wanting to get a head start on the upcoming Pinto League season. The goal of this program is to provide professional instruction on the proper techniques of hitting, throwing, fielding, base-running, and pitching in an enjoyable and fun environment; additionally, participants will develop their knowledge of situational baseball by playing in weekly coach-pitch games.

Saturday, September 22nd 2:00-4:00PM
Saturday, September 29th 2:00-4:00PM
