T-Ball - Fall 2017

It's T-Ball Registration Time!!!

Legacy Park Youth Activities offers a recreational T-Ball league for Legacy Park children, ages 3 to 5.

WHAT IS T-BALL

The game is the entry sport to baseball and softball for young players, generally four to six years old. Members of two teams take turns hitting a ball off a batting tee set on home plate. Batters try to get on base and advance to home; fielders try to prevent that from happening. The elimination of pitching allows children to learn proper mechanics and participate without the fear of being hit by a pitched ball. Tee ball develops the primary baseball skills of hitting, running, fielding and throwing. The players gain an understanding of the fundamental rules, which allows minimally competitive league play at all age levels.

RULES OF PLAY

  • 50 feet between the bases.
  • Every player bats and plays in the field.
  • The ball is hit off a batting tee; there is no pitching.
  • There are no walks or strikeouts.
  • The ball must travel 10 feet or it is a foul.
  • No stealing. Player stays on the base until the ball is hit.
  • An inning is over when all the players have batted once or three outs are recorded.
  • Standard game is four innings or one hour, whichever occurs first.
  • Score is not kept. Emphasis is on skill-building, learning experience, where the score is not the focus of the game.
  • Safety helmets must be worn.
