The Upside of Travel Baseball

Kids build and develop athleticism by participating in a wide range of different sports and activities.

My kid is six years old and plays on an 8U travel ball team called the Half Moon Bay Pirates. I was hesitant to let him play travel ball at such a ridiculously young age, but my dude, Leo, is the coach and Colton’s best friend from his Little League team, (Leo’s kid) Jackson, who is also six years old, was playing as well.

Understand this.

I didn’t play organized baseball until I was 8 years old, and that was tee-ball. I then tried out for the majors and made it as a 9-year-old on the best team in the league.
