T-Ball provides a fun introduction to the games of baseball and softball. Children will develop the basic fundamentals of throwing, fielding and hitting. Games are shortened in duration (usually 3-4 innings) and involve both hitting off an adjustable tee or coach pitched. Each team will bat through the line-up each inning. Only RIF (reduced injury factor) balls are used.
Children ages 5-6 years old (and some 7 year olds whom have never played) will participate in one weekly night of practice and a fun game on Saturday mornings. All games and practices will take place at the FRES T-ball field. Children should bring a glove and wear comfortable clothes. Helmets and bats are provided by WJAA. Each player will be given a team hat and jersey. The season will run April-early June.
