Taylor McAtee slowly lined her bat up with the baseball sitting atop the batting tee. Only holding it there a few seconds, the 4-year-old pulled her bat back and swung, managing to hit the ball a few feet off the tee. Learning how to hit the ball was only one skill Taylor practiced Sunday afternoon during Start Smart, a baseball instruction clinic for 3 to 5 year olds sponsored by the Baldwin City Recreation Commission. Taylor, and 12 other 3 to 5 year olds, will participate in Start Smart five Sundays working on baseball fundamentals — batting, throwing, catching and running.
