This program mission is to provide children who reside in the Sylvania Recreation District with a solid baseball experience.

Spring Training

We operate annual Spring Training sessions at Pacesetter Park. This is a great opportunity to get out, shake some off some of that rust and get ready for the approaching baseball season. Coaches from around the area will be running defensive, offensive and base-running drills to get you back in baseball shape! Come out and gear up for the Summer season at one or all of these training opportunities.
