I.T.S. Baseball Discounted Evaluations

SDLL Sponsor I.T.S. Baseball will once again be offering discounts for hitting, pitching and catching evaluations and arm care instruction sessions. Each one will only cost $40 for SDLL players - evaluations are usually $60 and arm care sessions are $50, so this is a great value. In addition, I.T.S. will donate $10 for every session completed, and an extra $100 for every 10 sessions, back to SDLL!  This is a great way to support one of our terrific sponsors and our league at the same time.  

See this flyer for more details.
