What is T-Ball?

T-Ball is the first introduction for children to learn to play baseball. T-Ball offers players the opportunity to learn, develop, and practice fundamental baseball skills at hitting, throwing, fielding, and running while playing on a team. A special "soft" baseball is used.

Who plays in T-Ball

T-Ball is designed for 4 - 6 year olds and consists of two age groups who play separately: 1) T-Ball Jr for players who are baseball age 4 - 5. 2) T-Ball Jr for players who are baseball age 6.

What is the time commitment in T-Ball?

There are 2 sessions per week consisting of a league development session on Wednesdays and one game on Saturday or Sunday. Please refer to top of this page for actual times. *After completing registration, please ensure you email registrar@dunbarbaseball.ca stating which game session you prefer (only 8 players per team can be allocated to one game session).

Where are T-Ball games played?

Games and practices are played on the T-Ball diamond at Memorial Park West (33rd Avenue and Wallace).

What is the structure of games?

In T-Ball Jr., the ball is hit from a stationary tee. In T-Ball Sr., the ball may be soft-tossed under-handed by coaches. Coaches are allowed on the field and designated parents help by taking turns umpiring. All players are on the field and rotate positions. Everyone bats every inning. No score or standings are kept.

What baseball gear is needed?

Players are required to have their own baseball glove and batting helmet. Teams will also supply shirts, bats, and caps. Please refer to the Gear & Attire page for more details.

How can I be a T-Ball coach?

At the time you register your player in T-Ball, you will be asked to volunteer in some capacity with the League. Coach or Assistant Coach are volunteer options. All DLL coaches much complete a Criminal Record Check and will also be required to attend a series of coaching clinics. The DLL Coaching Committee will approve all coach selections.

What is expected of Parents in T-Ball?

T-Ball is NOT a drop-off activity. A parent must stay at the park for the duration of each session. Parents are not allowed on the field during games or practices. Parents will be placed on a rotational schedule to help with bench and snack duties. Duties will be assigned by the team manager at the beginning of the season.

Playing Up

If your child displays strong baseball skills (able to catch, throw from one base to another, and hit a pitching machine pitch or equivalent), please indicate in the registration process that you would like your child to be considered to play up in a higher division. If you select this option, your child will be required to attend the player assessments in early February. The final decision regarding which division your child will play in will be decided by the assessment scores and the division coordinator. Our goal is to place players in the division where they can have fun and develop their skills.
