Baseball - Rookie Ball Division

Welcome to the Shrub Oak Little League's Rookie Ball Division previously known as the Instructional/T-Ball Division for boys and girls in Pre-K and Kindergarten (3-4-5 years old).  Players are introduced to the most basic concepts of baseball including base running, hitting, field positions, and fielding.  The Rookie Ball Division uses a safety ball and all players will hit off a tee and will be instructed in the basic mechanics of fielding.  Our Rookie Ball Division will practice/play once a week for 75 minutes on Saturday's during the spring and fall seasons.   In addition to baseball-specific skills, players will also learn how to be part of a team (such as how to respect teammates, coaches, other players; how to wait their turn; and how to show good sportsmanship).   This is not a competitive division.  No score will be kept for games.  Player/coach ratio is small to maximize an optimal baseball learning environment.

  • Glove
  • Bat T-ball Bat (See Bat Information page for more details)

New players will receive pants.  Players who played in the spring will use their pants issued in the spring for the fall season. Players can purchase new pants in the fall for $10.   Please label all of your child's equipment.
