WHY PLAY BASEBALL ?
Baseball helps you grow up – both in mind and body. It brings you new friends, shows you how to get along with others, and helps you live up to your Cub Scout ideals – the Cub scout Promise and the Law of the Pack.
If you find you like baseball a lot, you may want to join a youth league or try out for your school team. When you are ready for college, you may be able to get a baseball scholarship. Some may gain added experience while playing for the State/Indian Team which represents the country in international competition and in the Olympics. And for some, the goal may even be to play professional ball someday.
But whether you play baseball just for fun or go for a career in the big leagues, remember that the best you can do is to do your best.

HINTS IN TEACHING PROCEDURES FOR DEN COACHES
Some boys will already know quite a bit about playing baseball. Others will think they do. Few will admit they don's. So plan to explain and to demonstrate each rule and technique to everyone, regardless of what they may already know. Check each body individually as you take up new skills and practice the old ones.
You can conduct practices in a gym, a vacant lot, on a lawn, a park, a driveway or parking lot, or wherever the ground in level and clear. Consider asking.
