T-BALL DIVISION FAQs
Below are most of the things you need to know about our T-Ball Division but should you have any additional questions please contact our VP, T-Ball Operations, Mark Doran at firstname.lastname@example.org
We play on Tuesday nights, starting at 6:15 pm. All players should arrive at least 15 minutes prior to game time to warm up. Games will be forfeited if not enough players arrive by 6:30. It is important to notify your coach if your child cannot attend a game or practice.
The location for the practices will be the same as the playing locations. The coach will talk with the parents on their team and decide what day and time is best. Practices are once a week for one hour. If you cannot attend your own team’s practices you can join any other teams practice. Mark Doran (the VP) can give you information on the dates and times.
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.
Each player needs a glove and a helmet with a chin strap. If he/she wishes to bring a bat that is okay although we provide bats for each team. We suggest that you bring water or juice to keep your child hydrated during the game. Running shoes will be okay or soccer cleats. No open toed shoes.
Absolutely! All players receive a baseball cap, jersey and pants (on a date to be determined in May at Martingrove Gardens). All players MUST wear the full uniform, including the pants for all games and practices. We are not insured and your child CANNOT PLAY if they are not in full uniform (especially the pants), for games and practices.
Yes, if a parent feels their child is ready for rookieball they should speak to their coach (who will speak to Mark Doran (the VP and a coach for the T-ball division) and his/her name will be placed on a call-up list. When a rookieball team is in need of a player your child could be called up for the game. Rookieball plays on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursday nights primarily.
You can sign up on line or in person at the scheduled in-person registration dates as listed on the website. You can also download a registration form from the website and mail it to the league at our post office box (which address is on the registration form).
Yes! We always need coaches and assistant coaches. We ask that all parents help out with the coaching in the games and practices, it is more fun if everyone gets involved. We see the “coach” as the main contact person but everyone else “pitches in.” If you want to be a head coach or assistant coach please mark it on your registration form or contact Mark Doran.
