About This Activity

Learning the core fundamentals of hitting and fielding is the primary goal of T Ball for ages 4 years old up to 6 years old.  3 year old children are much too young for this league and are not permitted for league play.  T-Ball requires all parents to get involved.  The kids at this age need basic fundamental parent coaching to learn throwing, catching and batting - remember, just basic, fundamental, mechanics.  Any of this information can be found at a book store or on line for this age group.  DO NOT RELY ON YOUR COACHES TO REINFORCE THESE FUNDAMENTALS.  These raw mechanics are your responsibility. 

The T-Ball league allows play by play on field instruction and allows each child a chance to learn the very basics of the game while having fun.  Everybody plays, everybody hits as all the kids have a chance to hit a soft type ball off of the T and run the bases.  Common sense, good sportsmanship, and just good old fashioned fun are the goals of this league!  Games are usually played on weeknights after 5:45 p.m. and /or weekends between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.  Practices are initiated by the coaches - not the league.  So during a team meeting, one may ask what is the best night for everyone to get to practice?

This league needs your help in coaching and assisting these young athletes.  Please help out and join the long list of FSA volunteers to provide instructional opportunities so the kids can learn the basics of hitting, fielding, and base running. If you are looking to participate as a coach or assistant coach, please indicate your willingness to do so on your registration application.  Please mark your -calendars for opening day - Saturday, April 9th at 9 a.m.  Teams will assemble in full uniform at 24th & Brown Sts for the annual parade (walk) to the Von Colln fields!  For additional questions regarding T-Ball, please contact Karen Eisenhower, Tball Commissioner at keisenhower@metroreporting.com
