T-Ball (Turning 6 in 2024)

T-Ball is our introduction to baseball and where we start teaching the basics of the game. Time will be spent practicing basic skills; running the bases, hitting, throwing and catching. The other half of the time will involve a game in which the batter hits from a tee and runs the bases.

Two teams will be on the same diamond. The first part will be a practice followed by playing a game each week. Score is not kept as the focus will be on basic baseball skills, team play, sportsmanship and having FUN.

Players are required to have their own glove and helmet. Running shoes or cleats may be worn. The league will provide a hat and a team colored jersey.
This program will skip long weekends unless needed to make up for rainouts.

The pitching machine allows players to hit a live ball that is consistent in placement. The ball is thrown at approximately 25 - 30 MPH.

The pitching machine pitches balls in the strike zone to batters. Batters attempt to hit the ball and run the bases to score runs. There are 6 infield positions and remaining players are in outfield positions. Defense and offense will switch after 6 batters. No score is kept.

Players will require their own glove, helmet, protective cup and pants. Baseball cleats are recommended. Metal cleats are not allowed. The league will provide players with a jersey, a hat and ball pants.  This program wraps up with a final game on July 13th (10 weeks).
