Senior T-BallUpdated Wednesday October 2, 2019 by Stanley Park Baseball.
Senior players in the youngest age bracket have the option of playing in our Junior T-Ball league if that option suits better. Similarly, those of the oldest age may register for play in our Junior 3 Pitch league. These decisions are dependent on each player's interest, skill, playing ability, maturity and/or other factors. Note that players in a league (i.e. Senior T-Ball) may play as fill-ins on any of our Junior 3 Pitch teams not able to field 10 players for one of its games.(They are not allowed to move down a level and play in our Junior T-Ball league.)
Opportunity to indicate preference of playing days - at least until playoffs. Please only "X" 1 day and only if absolutely necessary as more than that will be very difficult to comply with.
All T-Ball leagues use the soft-core ball. As of the 2009 season, we started playing all SENIOR T-Ball games with a safety-bag at first base and appropriate rule changes.
Since 2015: Defensive players, when playing infield positions, must wear facial protection. (Each team is being supplied with the necessary safety equipment.) This is now mandatory for Senior T-Ball, Junior 3-Pitch and Senior 3-Pitch but remains optional for our Junior T-Ball league.
SENIOR play tends to be more competitive than Junior T-Ball, i.e. score is kept (at least for the latter part of the season), there are umpires, and there is a season-ending wrap-up tournament. Since there may be as many as 14 players on a team and there are 11 fielding & batting positions utilized each inning, there will be some "sitting" out on a rotating basis.
For the 2018 season, each team (through a grant from Healthy Kids) was provided with a water jug and we're hoping that many of them will be back in use for our 2020 season. If providing post-game snacks, it is hoped that the teams doing so have a Snack Coordinator to coordinate "healthy" snacks.
