Moon Area Softball League


T-Ball Division (Ages 4-5)

The T-Ball Division has been developed to teach the fundamentals of the game of softball such as fielding, throwing, hitting and base running.

The goal of the division is to keep young athletes engaged, moving, and having fun while learning a game they will enjoy for years to come.

T-Ball Rules
  • 1 player per position; C, P, 1B, 2B, SS, 3B, LF, LC, RC, RF
  • Positions must be rotated among all players. All players must play both the infield and outfield each game.
  • No player may play first base or pitcher in consecutive innings.
  • Pitcher position should wear heart guard and have at least 1 foot inside the circle until the ball has been pitched.
  • All "outfield position" players must be at the grass or at a minimum of one foot in the grass at the start of the pitch.
  • A player will receive six pitches. There will be no called strikes. A foul ball on the last pitch does not count as a pitch. A Tee will be used for the seventh pitch. 
  • No base advancement on an overthrow. We encourage the players to maintain control of the ball in the infield to stop the play.
  • Runner may advance on a ball hit to the grass but should not advance more than two bases.
  • Max 5 Innings.
  • Coach or Assistant coach should keep score.
  • 3 outs or bat through the lineup, whichever is first, and then the other team is up to bat.
  • 11” size softie softballs are to be used.
  • Every defensive player must wear a face mask at all times.
  • Helmets are required for batters, base runners, and batters on deck.
Practice sessions typically begin the first week of April with two scheduled practices per week, weather permitting.  Practices will focus on utilizing small group stations to work on the fundamentals of batting (stance & swing basics), throwing (power T, rotation to release of ball), ground ball station (basic fielding position, 2 hands to cradle), fly ball station (get to the spot, watch the ball into the glove, move forward slightly), base running (when to run through 1B, when to round), catching (starting with the coach throwing to the players and building to players catching with each other), mental/rules (1 core principal each practice- order of the bases, force out vs. tag, flyball outs, etc.)
Games typically start early May with 1 practice and 1 game scheduled per week.  This division will mirror the basic structure of our 8U Softball League while using a safety softball versus the hard 8U softballs.  
For parents interested in volunteering their services as coaches, we will be happy to provide tools that will help to make it fun and engaging for the players. Coaching is a fun and rewarding experience!
All practices and games will be held at one of the following fields- Brewer Front Field (Moon Park), Brewer Back Field (Moon Park), Devenzio Field (Moon Park), or Whispering Woods Field (Spring Run Rd).
