T-Ball Overview

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).

  • For players that are 4, 5 & 6 years old
  • Our season starts from early May and goes to mid July (games and season length are subject to weather and field conditions) 
  • Games are played on Saturday mornings at Smythe Park
  • Allow 1 hour for a typical game
  • Uniforms (jerseys & caps) will be handed out at the start of the season once team rosters have been set 
  • Players will need to supply their own baseball gloves
  • Baseball helmets are available for games, but it is suggested that players use their own helmets for health reasons
  • Baseball helmets must have chin straps
  • York Baseball will supply regulation T-Ball (rubber) balls, bats, T-Ball stands and squeaking bases  
  • Don't forget to bring some drinking water
  • Teams are coed
  • Team rosters are limited to 7-8 players, in order to maximize their number of at bats, as well as to keep them active and engaged as much as possible 
  • For the 2024 season, games will be scheduled at 9-10am, 10-11am and 11am-12pm.

Parents/guardians are always welcome to assist during games:  help to put on and take off helmets, organize batting lineups, and so on.
