Medford Parks and Recreation Department teams with the San Francisco Giants Community Fund to offer a free, high-quality youth baseball program for boys and girls that emphasizes the “Four Bases of Character” – teamwork, leadership, integrity and self-confidence. Registration includes a Junior Giants t-shirt and cap.
This program is one of the most well organized FREE programs we have been a part of! The coaches are all volunteer, so the beginning can be a little shaky trying to figure out how everything comes together, but as far as The Junior Giants organization, we received t-shirts, hats, water bottles, all for free. It was great! You practice for about 1-2 weeks before the games begin – just getting teams together and figuring out how to even catch, throw and hit a ball (for these new t-ballers), and then the games begin! 10 weeks of games. The teams have a ton of kids because it’s summer, and not everyone is in town over summer, so it all works out. Plus, it’s free, so I don’t feel bad about missing a game here and there 🙂
