Looking for Sport Activities for 2 Year Olds

My little boy would rather play with bats, balls, baseball gloves, and helmets rather than watch cartoons or cars. He will sit and watch a basketball game for hours mimicking how the players shoot and he is totally fascinated with sports. I don't push him to be like this, he just naturally is. Is there anyone that knows of something pertaining to sports that he can get involved in at this early age? Please let me know.

Have you tried the YMCA? I know they definintely have swim programs for toddlers, but not sure about other sports. You might look online to see what they offer (http://www.ymca-arlington.org).

Try the Rec centers. I don't live in Arlington, but Coppell rec centers have sports classes starting at age 3.
