REDDING, Calif. -- Although the Colt 45s had to hang up its jersey’s this season, it’s not letting its youth strike out. It says it will still hold its baseball academy for 9-14-year-olds.

“We need to have it back, the kids need to get out and do this,” said general manager Rick Bosetti. They got kicked out of their little league, we got cut out of our season, and the college kids got cut out of their season. Everyone’s lost and here’s a chance to get a little win.”

The city of Redding Parks and Recreation approved the Colt 45s youth academy and gave it COVID-19 safety guidelines to get kids safely home.

“We have to ask them all if they had any symptoms, have a temperature or if they don’t feel good today,” said Bosetti. “They have to provide their own equipment, we can’t provide them with bats, gloves, things like that, and we will provide the ball that is a neutral item here.”

These rules are among many others. CLICK HERE to view Colt 45s full statement or sign up.

As of now the historic Tiger Field is being painted, cut, and worked on. It will be ready in time for July’s first at-bat.

“The first three weeks will be skills oriented, we’ll go through offensive and defensive skill sets and then there will be a review of those and then the last weeks will be games,” said Bosetti.

The academy will run through August and be headed by Colt 45s’ manger, players and other guests.

“That’s what we’re looking forward to,” said Bosetti. “Just getting them out here, I know that when they get here they’re just going to forget about everything and they’re back and it’s just going to happen.”
