The Top 5 Outdoor Sports for Kids

Baseball & Softball

For over a century now, little boys and girls have grown up dreaming of being baseball players. Why not get your children started early? Kids as young as 5 can learn how to play T-ball. After that, it's on to softball and then hardball (otherwise known as baseball).

Most local baseball teams are part of the national Little League Baseball organization. In fact, nearly 3 million kids in America today between the ages of 5 and 18 participate in Little League. The length of the Little League season depends on the part of the country you live in, but in most areas it's about three months long and runs in the spring or summer.

Here are some of the benefits that your child will get from playing baseball or softball:

Physical benefits

  • Physical strength
  • Hand-eye coordination
  • Balance

Social benefits

  • Citizenship
  • Discipline
  • Teamwork
  • Leadership
