BlastBall, a fun and exciting version of tee-ball for boys and girls ages 3 through 6, will be offered in February by the Muscatine Parks and Recreation Department.
BlastBall is designed to introduce children to baseball and softball through learning the basics of each sport. Players do not need gloves or equipment to play this game with soft bats and balls provided.
