Learn how to keep score, how to throw different types of pitches, and much more! Guests will also participate in some baseball experiments to learn how a baseball reacts in different types of weather and how to find the “sweet spot” of a bat. In addition, kids under the age of 15 will receive a free ticket to a Rex baseball game.
