Boys Girls Club to hold Quickball event

Post-Bulletin staff reports

Learn about the game of Quickball and meet Honkers baseball players Thursday during the Boys & Girls Club of Rochester’s inaugural Badges for Baseball & Quickball Extravaganza.

The event — from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Miracle Field, Watson Sports Complex, which is near Essex Parkway and West River Road — will include free refreshments and other promotional activities.

Quickball is a new program funded through the Cal Ripken Sr. Foundation to grow baseball programs from a grassroots level. Based on baseball and appropriate for all ages and skill levels, Quickball is a fast-paced game that is played inside a gymnasium or outside on a field.

The Boys & Girls Club is partnering with the Honkers, the Rochester Police Department, Rochester public schools, and Rochester Community and Technical College to support an introductory Quickball program.


The program will take place during lunch periods at six Rochester public schools.

Badges of Baseball, a developmental baseball league, is operated by the Boys & Girls Club and the Rochester Police Department.
