“We are pleased to announce another season of Crestwood T-Ball!” said Colby Calcote, DTOC President “T-Ball is a great way for children to bond not only with their parents, but with teammates as well. It is a great way to build character and encouragement with friends both on and off the diamond. As Downtown Optimist Club members, we are proud to be Friends of Youth!” Calcote went on to say, “Our program is unique in that the DTOC is fortunate to have several former college baseball players as members who will be working to make the children’s T-Ball experience not only fun, but educational as well.”
If your child is between the ages of 4 and 6, take this opportunity to sign up for Crestwood T-Ball. Learning the game of baseball is just as much fun as playing it!
The DownTown Optimist Club has been supporting youth programs such as Junior Golf and Youth Baseball programs in the Meridian area for over 60 years.
