Tee ball is required for all League Age 4-year-old players as well as 5-year-old players. It is also
recommended that most first year 6-year-old register for coach pitch. This is an introductory division
specifically designed to provide a foundation and introduction to baseball that is grounded in fun,
fitness, and fundamentals. All players begin the season by hitting off of a tee. As the season progresses,
managers, at their discretion, will introduce coach pitch to those ready to advance. Soft, Reduced Injury
Factor (RIF) balls are used for safety. No scores are kept, every offensive player bats each inning
regardless of outs, and no player sits on the defense. Players are taught the basic fundamentals of

olds. However, League Age 7-year-olds new to baseball may register for this division. This is an
instructional division where players hit “live” balls pitched by their own coach from a short distance.
