Tee Ball Overview

Game Schedule – games will take place at 6pm at South End School Field.

Game Rules:
• No Winning or Losing - this is strictly teaching the fundamentals of baseball. Runs do not count.
• Swing limit - No swing limit
• Running Bases - 1 base at a time
• Fielders - 5 infielders is the max at all times (P, 1B, 2B, SS, 3B). Everyone else is an outfielder.
• Outs - No outs are recorded, clear the bases and continue with the batting order until all kids have batted. Last batter clears the bases all the time. Coaches can challenge the kids to see how many outs their team can get.
• Games are 3 full innings
• Rotate Positions - have all the kids play every position throughout the season. First baseman must know how to get their glove up to protect themselves.
• Coaches - can be out on the field along with their fielders. Make sure the kids are paying attention at all times. Also, keep reminding them which base they are supposed to throw to.

What to teach (use cue words):
• Proper throwing motion
• Proper hitting technique (during games, have the coach that is catching adjust the batter if needed)
• Catching - including grounders and popups
• Base running - try to get the kids to understand when to run through the base and when to take a turn towards the next base
• Defensively - ready position when the batter is swinging and know where to go with the ball in different scenarios.

Field Upkeep – Coaches will be provided a key to the trunk where the equipment is located. If it rains coaches will determine if game will be played. Make-up dates must be mutually agreed upon.
