Teams & Divisions

T-Ball

T-Ball is for 4-6 year old players or dependent on safety and ability. The players are taught the fundamentals in a supportive environment. T-Ball  is played with the players hitting off the tee. There will be NO coach pitch in this division. There is no score-keeping. Games are 3-innings or 1-hour, depending on which comes first. There is one practice in addition to one game per week.

There are one-to-two practices and games per week.
