Players born between 9/1/2015 and 8/31/2017; must be at least in kindergarten.


Baseball T-ball is approximately 14 regular season games, followed by a single elimination tournament. The teams are formed in mid-late March with the season typically lasting from early April until mid-June. On average, one game during the weeknights and one game on the weekend (primarily on Saturdays). The focus at this level is on learning the basics - hitting, catching, fielding, throwing, and running the bases.


Games are six innings with 5-run limits per inning. Games typically last between 90 and 120 minutes. Oak Park is a large community, so the skill level will be wide ranging, but coaches will focus on teaching fundamentals. We use RIF (Reduced Injury Factor) baseballs.

Time Commitment

Time commitment is approximately 4 to 6 hours/week between games and practices.

How Teams are Made

While we can’t promise honoring teammate requests, we try to do our best at this age level. Please don’t hesitate during registration to request a teammate or two as we try to make teams have a competitive balance of kindergarten and first graders, but also based on player teammate requests. We typically are able to honor over 80 percent of requests.

Coaches - Please volunteer

Our entire baseball and softball organization is composed of volunteers. Last year, our organization had over 300 volunteer coaches. The skill level of our coaches ranges from “former professional player” to “never played.” All of our volunteer coaches must pass a background check and take a Safe Sport Certification. We offer help and guidance for coaches who have little-to-no experience. Some of our very best coaches have had no experience, but are great human beings who understand what it means to be a leader and make a fun and rewarding experience for their players. Contact the VP of Baseball for more information.
