T-Ball

Ages 4-5-6
T-Ball introduces players who have never played before to the game of baseball. This division emphasizes fun and instruction. Familiarity with the field, defensive positions and the most basic fundamentals of fielding, throwing, catching and hitting are stressed. There is no scorebook, no playoffs and a 1-½ hour time limit per game. All batting is done with a stationary ball placed on a tee with every player having a turn to bat every inning.  Batters try to get on base and advance to home; fielders try to prevent that from happening.  The elimination of pitching allows children to participate without the fear of being hit by a pitched ball. The players gain an understanding of the fundamental rules, which allows minimally competitive league play at all age levels.  Safety and proper use of safety equipment is stressed from the very beginning and continues throughout every level of play.  Players learn about teamwork and have fun in an environment free of any competitive pressure. If possible, an effort is made to place friends on the same team in order to facilitate coaching duties and/or car-pooling and to make first-time players more comfortable in a team atmosphere.

Rookie Minors (Coach Pitch)

Ages 7-8
This division emphasizes instruction rather than competition. Players will build upon the fundamentals learned in T-Ball.  Coaches will pitch to their own players using a "flexiball" which is softer than a regulation baseball. This division uses a continuous batting order, free substitutions, no standings and no playoffs. Players are not drafted onto these teams; however, if possible, an effort will be made to place players together if it will help parents with coaching duties and/or car-pooling.
*6 year olds can play in this division if they have already played one year of T-Ball in Capitol Little League.
