The T-ball division is a non-competitive division where the primary goal is to begin to instruct young players in the fundamentals of baseball in a supportive team environment.  Coach pitch is implemented half-way through the season.  Otherwise, the baseball is placed on an adjustable tee atop home plate at a suitable height for the batter to strike. Score is not kept and rules are designed to maximize participation.  An inning is completed once each child has had a turn at bat and all players on the defensive team play in the outfield every inning.  To encourage the defensive team to try to make plays, there are typically no extra bases on overthrows and runners may not advance after the ball is in possession of an infielder.
