T-Ball

T-Ball is for children Little League ages 4 to 6.    T-Ball introduces players who have never played before to the game of baseball.  Emphasis is on very basic introduction to the skills of throwing, catching, and hitting the ball.  Players learn about the field of play, the defensive positions on the field and running the bases.  All batting is done with a stationary ball placed on a tee with every player having a turn to bat every inning.  Batters try to get on base and advance to home; fielders try to prevent that from happening.  The elimination of pitching allows children to participate without the fear of being hit by a pitched ball.  The players gain an understanding of the fundamental rules, which allows minimally competitive league play at all age levels.  Safety and proper use of safety equipment is stressed from the very beginning and continues throughout every level of play.  Players learn about teamwork and have fun in an environment free of any competitive pressure.
