Tee-Ball is designed for 5 – 6 year-olds as an introduction to the sport of baseball, often times serving as a child's first foray into the world of organized sports. As its name implies, batters hit softer safety baseballs off a stationary tee to players who are, more-or-less, playing positions in the field. The only goal of Tee-Ball is to have fun while learning the basics of the sport. Games are purely for fun and no scores are kept. Teams are built with great flexibility, which typically allows for reasonable player pairing requests.
