Baseball programs

 

T-Ball is a great way to introduce kids to baseball. The High Park Instructional/T-Ball program is a training process by which youngsters aged 6-8 years old can learn, develop and practice fundamental baseball skills at an early age and receive maximum enjoyment from the experience.

The young player benefits in several ways hitting the ball from a prescribed tee. In T-Ball, the inning isn’t over until all 11 batters have been up to bat (the baseball concept of “three outs” doesn’t apply). So T-Ball has 110 balls in play in every five-inning game. That means lots of hitting, lots of fielding, and lots of fun! Children at all levels get the opportunity to field the ball, and every batter swings until they hit the ball.

The Instructional program is designed to introduce young players to the sport of baseball.  Six (6) year old boys and girls learn to catch, throw, hit off a tee, and run the bases while playing a variety of games.  The emphasis is on having fun, and the activities change frequently to keep the children active and involved. Learn more.

T-Ballers, aged 7 and 8, have the opportunity to develop hand-eye coordination and swing technique without fear of being hit by a pitched ball, and the defensive team is allowed more opportunities to develop fundamental fielding skills. Youngsters will learn to play and enjoy baseball through good instruction and participation experience in T-Ball. Learn more.

Little League Baseball is the world’s largest organized youth sports program designated for children 9 -12 years of age. Although it uses a lot of the same rules as baseball there are some differences. One of the biggest difference is the size of the diamond that Little League uses. It is a 60-foot diamond with a pitching distance set at 46 feet. There are many exciting features which include a full range of tournament play and the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.

High Park Little League has a Minor division (ages 9 and 10) and Major division (ages 11 and 12). The league welcomes players moving up from the T-Ball program as well as new players for each division who must attend a spring evaluation after which they are placed on a team.
