Welcome to OPYBS Girls T-Ball page! Girls born in 2008 (if they are in second grade), 2009, 2010, and 2011 (if currently enrolled in Kindergarten) are eligible for T-ball in 2017.

T-Ball is an introduction to softball for girls in Kindergarten to 2nd grade. Our 9U league offers further focus on development for older girls. All third graders are strongly encouraged to sign up for our 9U league, regardless of skill level, or 10U for more competitive play. Third graders must move up if they have already played one year of T-Ball.

This league uses an 11” Reduced Injury Factor (RIF) ball hit off of a tee. Bases in this league are at a 50' distance. There is a continuous batting order and girls play multiple innings in the field every game. Players typically rotate through many positions over the course of the season, factoring in safety and skill level, to expose them to the roles of different fielding positions.

About 220 girls formed 18 teams in Girls T-Ball for the 2017 season. There is a 16 game regular season starting in April and extending in to June. Games are scheduled on weeknights (6pm) and during the day on Saturdays. They are typically played at Whittier Elementary School and Gwendolyn Brooks Middle School fields. Additional/alternate times and fields may be added as space, time and weather permit.

While T-Ball is primarily an instructional league and the focus is on development of fundamentals, there are many competitive elements. There is a full playoff schedule every team qualifies for, a best-of-three Village Championship Series, and an All-Star Game.
