Marley Cazier concentrates on throwing the ball during the 2013 JPRD Itty Bitty T-Ball program, while the station leader, Shane DeSherlia, observes.Watch your little one run the bases this summer with Jerseyville Parks and Recreation Department (JPRD). The department is offering a program for children three to four years old. Itty Bitty T-Ball is a non-competitive skill development program that consists of small group rotations through skill stations. Stations include hitting, base running, catching, grounders and throwing. The program meets once per week for six weeks for 45 minutes.

The session runs from Sunday, June 14 to July 26 on Diamond F at Dolan Park, located at the corner of June and Carpenter Street. There will be no session held on July 5. In the event of rain, the session will be pulled inside the Susnig Center. On the six and final week, participants will be divided and scrimmage an entire game. There are four times to choose from: 4pm, 5pm, 6pm and 7pm. The success of this program is dependent upon volunteer station leaders, therefore parents/guardians will be asked to be volunteers each
week. Participants will need a glove, water bottle and non-marking soled sneakers. Program fee is $30 per child and includes a participation medal. The program is open to all city and non-city residents. Register soon
because space is limited in each session and the deadline is Friday, June 5.
