Tee Ball Softball for Boys

Boys Tee Ball Softball is for boys 5-6 years old (with a local option for 7- and/or 8-year-olds) who want to learn the fundamentals of hitting and fielding. In Boys Tee Ball Softball, players hit a ball off a batting tee.

Rules of the game may be varied to accommodate the need for teaching. The primary goals of Boys Tee Ball Softball are to instruct children in the fundamentals of softball and to allow them to experience the value of teamwork.

Rosters may be composed of between 12 and 20 players, but most leagues have rosters in the 12-15 range. No live pitching is permitted in this division. Generally, the diamond used is a 60-foot diamond, but the league has the option to use a 50-foot diamond.

Parents are strongly encouraged to become involved in this introduction level of Little League. After completing a Little League volunteer application and passing a required national background check, parents may become involved in practices, and be eligible as coaches, managers, umpires, local league board members and other volunteer positions within the league.
