Tee Ball

Tee-Ball Baseball is for children 4-6 years old. The purpose of the program is to introduce the players to the basics of baseball including throwing, hitting and fielding and for them to experience the value of teamwork and friendship.  In Tee-Ball, players hit a ball off a batting tee. Rules of the game may be varied to accommodate the need for teaching.  There is one 60-minute practice during the week and one 60-minute game on Saturday’s with no outs and no scoring.
