The 2011 4-H Youth Baseball\/Softball Program is about to begin. Our Baseball Program is in its 22nd year thanks to the cooperation and support we get from the community and our local merchants. The Baldwin area youth really enjoy baseball and softball; it keeps them busy during the summer months. Playing ball gives them a positive experience and provides hours of exercise and excitement. The first 50 kids to sign up and pay will receive a trip to see a Whitecaps Game on July 10. This year there will be a special sign up day on Saturday, March 26, 2011 from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Baldwin School Elementary. In addition there will be games, hotdogs and the pitching machine available to enjoy. Hope to see you there! T-Ball Registration Practices will begin in May.
