T-BALL 4-6 Years Old
Who is it for? T-ball is for our youngest players, boys and girls baseball age 4-6. This is your child’s first introduction to organized baseball. Managers and coaches provide age appropriate instruction in an encouraging and supportive setting, and receive league support and training to do so. Parents are encouraged to participate at the coach’s request.
What Skills are Taught? Managers and coaches begin to teach the rules of the game, including the names of the positions, base running and the notion of ‘outs’. Players learn throwing and catching basics and how to safely swing the bat. All players bat off a batting tee, through the lineup, every inning – though some coaches may begin to “toss” the ball to kids to improve hand/eye coordination.
How is the Game Played? Games last approximately 4 innings or about one and a half hours and are played one weeknight and/or Saturday. A lot of parent support and participation is needed. Defensive teams typically have 2 adults in the outfield and offensive teams need 2 base coaches and one Tee helper to assist or coach the batter. All players play the field every inning. The league does not keep score or standings. Every player bats every inning.
