Tee Ball (Ages – 4-6)

Mission:
T-Ball is an instructional league intended to introduce both boys and girls ages 4, 5, and 6 to the game of baseball. It gives children the ability to develop baseball skills like throwing, catching, hitting, and running bases as well as learning basic fielding skills and most important of all having fun while learning the basics of baseball. During the game of T-Ball, the ball is placed on an adjustable tee atop the home plate at a suitable height for the batter to swing at. Most teams work to develop skills in order for the children to hit a ball pitched by their coach. This gives the batter an opportunity to try and hit a few pitched balls before going to the tee in the hope that this will further encourage batting skills. Most of the other rules are similar or identical to those of baseball. We encourage parents to assist during the game by coaching players in the dugout, in the field, on the bases, and at the plate.
