Tee Ball Rules

We have established Tee ball to introduce the kids to the fundamentals of baseball /softball.  The ages of the kids vary from baseball and softball ages 3-5. The purpose of the division is to teach the kids how to throw, catch, hit and run the bases. 

- There is a 1hr time limit to all games, no new inning can start after 50 minutes of playing time.
- All batters will bat each half-inning. There are no outs and there are no strikes. If a batter hits the tee before the ball, it will be deemed a foul ball and the batter will hit again. Balls that are foul of the lines will also be re- hit.
- All baserunners will take one base at a time for every hitter.  Exception is for the last hitter of the half-inning who will hit a “homerun” and all runners will run all the way home.
- The defense will try to make outs however the runner will not be removed from the base if he/she is out. (This promotes teaching base running while still teaching the kids to throw the ball and make defensive plays)
- No scores will be kept
- Each team will reverse their batting order for each inning. (the child who hits last in the first inning will hit first in the second inning.)
- After 4 or 5 batters the defense will rotate, those at infield positions will rotate to the outfield and those at outfield positions will rotate to the infield positions.
- Coaches will place the ball on the tee.
