T-BALLUpdated Friday February 23, 2018 by Babe Ruth Import.
T-Ball is recommended for 4, 5, and 6 year olds to teach the fundamentals of hitting and fielding. All batters will hit the ball from a batting tee which is adjusted to a height that allows the batter to swing level. All rostered players present for the game bat in order, whether playing defensively or not. Each player plays a minimum of two innings defensively. An adult coach is stationed beyond the infielders in order to provide instruction to all defensive players. The primary goal is to begin to instruct young players in the fundamentals of baseball in a supportive team environment.
All T-Ball games are played on Saturdays.
All T-Ball teams should practice once per week, weather permitting.
Coaches and Parents should come together to establish an appropriate practice day.
Parents should not be afraid to help participate in practices to help the coaches. A Team Manager (mom or dad) should be established to help with some of the team updates and events as well as work with the coaches to help gather information from other team parents.
The goal of the T-Ball Program is to have fun!
