6U - Instructional Coach Pitch and T-Ball

**Our goal for both beginners and advanced Tball is to teach the fundamentals of the game in a fun environment and to allow them to experience the value of teamwork**

T-Ball (Beginners)

-Maximum of 3 innings where each team bats or an hour time limit

-Every child bats each inning (recommend rotating batting order to keep children engaged)

-On-deck batter should be sitting behind the orange fence.  Only the batter will be allowed to hold a bat.  Players should be arranged in batting order on bench to expedite innings

-Positions include: pitcher, 1st, 2nd, shortstop, 3rd, right field, right center field, left center field, and left field (recommend switching kids from outfield to infield each inning as available)

-Batter advances 1 base per at bat except for the last batter where he/she will run all the bases.

-In case of an out at a base, the runner will remain on that base and continue to run with the next batter's hit

-Score will not be kept


-all the above rules pertain to advanced Tball with the exception of...

-Each batter will receive 5 pitches from their coach each inning.  If the batter does not hit a playable ball, he/she will be given the opportunity to hit off of a tee

-Runners will be out and will return to their "bench" when an out is made at their base

-Batters should be encouraged to run through 1st base instead of stopping on the base

-Catchers may be utilized in Advanced Tball.  They will be expected to wear a catchers mask.  


-Each team will have 1 game to be taken place on an actual diamond.
