Registration for the 2014 Season of the Hayward Junior Giants is now open. The season starts June 16 and runs until August 7. All games and practices take place at Larry Standley Field in Weekes Park at 27182 Patrick Avenue in Hayward.
Junior Giants is a free, non-competitive summer baseball program for Hayward youth ages 5-14 years old. The program is run by the Hayward Police DepartmentÕs Youth and Family Services Bureau (YFSB) SROs and Counselors, in partnership with the SF Giants Community Fund and the Hayward Area Recreation and Park District (HARD).
In addition to learning basic baseball skills, the Junior Giants participate in programs that encourage education, healthy eating, violence prevention and positive character development. The kids also receive free breakfast and lunch through the ÔLetÕs Do Lunch Hayward É and breakfast tooÕ Program. The SF Giants Community Fund provides all of the uniforms, equipment, and training necessary to run a league, as well as prizes and tickets to select Giants games so youth can experience Major League Baseball.
