New program: Small Fry 1 Baseball

Registration for a new program, Small Fry 1 Baseball, will begin by mail only on Monday. Small Fry 1 is a new program for children who will turn 6 by April 30. In this program, children will be divided into teams and practice will precede a 3-inning game vs. another team.

Parents will receive a schedule, and games will be played at designated times between 1 and 6 p.m. each Saturday for 1.5 hours. This program will continue the Parks and Recreation baseball progression, and children will start to learn how to hit live pitching thrown by the coaches as well as learn how to run the bases and play the field.

The program will meet on Saturday afternoons April 26 to June 14 at the Barradas field next to the Bendheim Western Greenwich Civic Center. The cost of the program is $91 and includes a team shirt and hat. For more information, and a registration form, visit or call the Bendheim Western Greenwich Civic Center at 203-532-1259.

The Astronomical Society of Greenwich will host public nights at the Bowman Observatory, on the grounds of Julian Curtiss Elementary School, 1800 East Elm St., from 7 to 9 p.m. on Tuesday and on March 11 and 25 from 8 to 10 p.m. For more information, call 203-413-6762.
