T-Ball Overview

  • For players that are 4, 5 & 6 years old (born 2014-2016)
  • Our season starts from late April and goes to mid July (subject to weather and field conditions) 
  • Games are played on Saturday mornings at Smythe Park - Field #2 and Field #3
  • Allow 1 hour for a typical game (including a quick pre-game warmup)
  • Uniforms (jerseys, & caps) will be handed out at the start of the season 
  • Players will need to supply their own baseball gloves
  • Baseball helmets are available for games, but it is recommended that players use their own helmets for health reasons
  • Baseball helmets must have chin straps
  • York Baseball will supply regulation T-Ball balls, squeaky bases, bats and T-Ball stands  
  • Don't forget to bring some drinking water
  • Teams are comprised of both girls and boys
  • Teams are purposely limited to about 8 players, in order to maximize their number of at bats, as well as to keep them active as much as possible 

  

This is where it all starts for our future baseball stars!  Players are introduced to the basic concepts of batting, throwing and catching, fielding and running around the bases (in the correct direction).
