6U Modified T-Ball
This program is designed for the entry level and younger player. As safety is our number one concern, a 10 inch Incrediball is used (a “softer” version softball). We keep the teams small so that each child gets a lot of playing time and not a lot of standing or sitting around. In addition, the player gets a lot more individual coaching time. Of course with smaller teams, each child gets more at bats, which we all know is their favorite thing to do at this age.
Now your asking yourself, what is 6U Modified T-Ball?
The teams are made up of girls who are league age 4-6 years old (girls born 2009-2011). This allows the girls to play with girls of similar age so they can learn together at a similar pace.
The key difference between T-Ball and Modified T-Ball is that the coach will pitch a few times to the batter and if the batter does not hit the ball, the ball is put on a Tee. You will find this is fast moving and a lot more exciting than T-ball and has a guaranteed success rate. Also, with more players hitting, the fielders are more engaged and having fun.
At this age level, the rules are more relaxed as we focus on safety, fun and learning first. For example, if a child is uncomfortable with coach pitch, then she can immediately hit off the Tee until she is ready for coach pitch.
Travel for this age group is very limited. Most games are played in Pasadena and nearby Glen Burnie.
