Batting cages, blast ball, pizza, and cupcakes will most definitely make for a home-run in entertainment for your child’s next birthday party
For all of you baseball and softball lovers out there—the Sandlot needs to be on your list of places to go and things to do. The Sandlot Baseball & Fastpitch Academy is a practice, training and instructional facility for baseball and fastpitch that provides both, private and team instruction, indoor batting cages, pitching tunnels, and more. In addition to many entertaining opportunities at the Sandlot are fabulous, all-inclusive birthday parties!
Baseball themed parties at the Sandlot are fun and memorable for boys and girls of all ages. The "Batter Up" birthday package includes 30 minutes in a private party room, 30 minutes playing blast ball or whiffle ball, and 30 minutes in the batting cages. Pizza, drinks, and cupcakes are included, so parents can completely sick back, relax, and enjoy watching their child have the birthday party of their dreams. Up to 12 kids are included in the birthday package for just about $20 per child. Additional children are also welcome to attend for an additional cost.
Candace Bourgeois of the Sandlot said, "Our Sandlot philosophy is about having fun and helping kids to have a passion for the game! Having a birthday party at the Sandlot is an opportunity to have fun and it's a great deal for parents with all that is included."
Included in the party package are additional goodies for the birthday kid—a t-shirt, hat, and picture strips—photos of the birthday kid batting against a major league pro of his/her choice. Also included for the birthday kid is a video analysis of his/her baseball swing (a $40 value)! The Sandlot uses "Right View Pro"—a software program that digitally captures a player's swing and breaks it down into 12 fundamental steps. This allows the instructors at the Sandlot to review each swing and identify each specific area the player can improve on, so not only will the birthday child have an all-star party, but they will learn skills on how to become an all-star player!
In addition to birthday parties the Sandlot offers many other individual and group activities including: pitching camps, team parties, and lessons in Hitting, Pitching, Fielding, Outfield, Throwing, Base Running, Specialty Position, and Catching.
The philosophy of Sandlot is based on encouraging and rewarding positive behavior for each student in his or her game, at home and at school.
The positive characteristics taught at The Sandlot are qualities that help kids succeed in not only being better ball players, but also better participants at home and at school.
