T-Ball is an introduction to baseball for boys and girls, ages 6 and 7, where the players hit off a tee. They continue to learn to hit, throw and catch the baseball.  hey also learn how to run the bases and other essential fundamentals of baseball.  All players will play on a team and together they will learn the basic elements of the game and have fun.

Yes, the players can be called out just like in a regular baseball game. However, the 3 out rules does not apply.  The rule is that all players on the team get to hit at least once in each inning.  Therefore, the inning could have many more than the traditional 3 outs.
