Junior Giants is a free, non-competitive and coed baseball program for youth each summer that builds good sportsmanship, good nutrition, and the skills to be a good athlete. The program is open to Rancho Cordova youth ages 5-13 and offers equipment, uniforms, program incentives and training for coaches.
Eighteen teams and more than 320 children participated in this year’s program! Children participated in an eight-week season that ran from June through August that included baseball games, skate night, and end of season BBQ. The children were able to earn incentives such as backpacks, notebooks, water bottles and other items for participating in the program.
Following the season in September, eight teams attended the Junior Giants Festival at AT&T Park. The teams that attended had to have each child complete six hours of reading during the Junior Giants program. During the Junior Giants Festival, the children were able to run the bases, participate in a wiffle ball game, and even received a free book to take home as a memento.
In 2018, the Rancho Cordova PAL Junior Giants League was awarded “Diamond” status. This designation is awarded to leagues for achieving the highest marks in player retention, cost efficiency, and parent satisfaction survey. There are 88 Junior Giants Leagues throughout Oregon, California and Nevada, and Rancho Cordova PAL is only one of 13 leagues to be awarded Diamond status.
