Every year, my husband I get comfy on the couch with a bowl of popcorn and catch the excitement of the World Series. We love baseball! This year as the Rays and Philly’s take the field, I plan on sharing that joy with my children.
I’ve loved the sport from an early age, due to my father and brother being baseball fanatics. I sat in the stands with the Team Mom (my Mother) and cheered on the coach (my Dad) and the players (my brother). Not only did I have fun, but I learned the fundamentals of baseball just by being there.
Now, it’s a little easier for parents to teach the game of baseball to their children with The Sportys. The DVD features a team of lovable animated characters being taught the game of baseball (such as strike vs. ball and fair vs. foul), teamwork and sportsmanship, from the voice of Academy Award nominated actor Michael Clark Duncan as, “Stitch” the baseball. The series educates kids ages 3-10 about the fundamentals of baseball in an entertaining and fun way. The video quickly connects kids with the characters and their personalities, so they have a great time watching while truly learning what baseball is all about. This first DVD will be followed by additional exciting and informative videos for other sports.
“As a father, I wanted to create a sports video series that teaches the nuances of the game and gives kids more confidence and inspiration to actually get out there and play the game,” says Bobby Barad, sports attorney and creator of The Sportys, Inc. “With the help of the Sportys team, children will learn baseball’s fundamentals in a fun interactive environment, allowing them to enjoy watching sports and becoming a fan with their parents.”
As an added BONUS, The Sportys offers the entire family a tool to better their baseball experience with an additional “Coach at Home” segment featuring New York Yankees hitting coach, Kevin Long. The goal is to provide parents and care givers simple “at-home” pointers on teaching baseball skills to their children through creative, fun and effective instruction.
The Sportys retails for 19.99. For more information or to make a purchase, visit them online at: www.thesportys.com
