About this division

T-Ball is the first introduction for children to learn to play baseball. It is designed forbaseball 5-6 year olds.  Everyone bats every inning, but the ball is placed on a tee rather than pitched.  No score or standings are kept. Regular bats are used and bat safety is paramount.  Helmets are required for all players.
