Sporty's Baseball DVD review and giveaway

A few weeks ago I witnessed my 5 year old in the back yard throwing a baseball in the air and trying to hit it with the bat, he was unsuccessful. I will admit I know nothing about the sport of baseball and my son was showing an interest. Then the most amazing thing happened I was given to opportunity to review Sporty's Baseball DVD and of course I jumped at it! The timing could not have been more perfect!


Their web site says "Sporty's will educate kids on the fundamentals of baseball in a fun and entertaining way" and that is the TRUTH! It also teaches the importance of teamwork which I personally thought was the best part of the DVD.

I will admit I only watched 15 minutes of it but my 5 year old and 11 year watched all of it and they both found it to be quite entertaining. My 5 year old asked to watch it again today.

When I asked my 5 year old what he thought the best part of the DVD was he said "The talking baseball Stitch, he told you what was going on" He said he also liked the characters names with Lefty, Righty and Nails being his favorite. I was impressed that it kept his attention. My 11 year old said "I learned some things I did not know, now I am ready to go to a Milwaukee Brewers game and I will know exactly what is going on! "

There is also a coach at home part to the DVD that I am going to watch so I can help my 5 year old hit that darn ball!!

DESCRIPTION:
The natural leader of the gang – self-confident, charismatic, the organizer, tends to take charge. Jack Armstrong type. Everyone follows his lead, although sometimes he might make decisions too impulsively and be a little bossy. He has great athletic skills, including a live arm, which makes him ideal as a pitcher, quarterback, team captain, etc.
