About LMLL’s Tee Ball Division:

.
Tee ball is a LOT OF FUN!!  It's designed to be instructional and non-competitive for players of all abilities.

 

Eligibility:  For birth dates between September 1, 2013 and August 31, 2014.


Who can play?  Players (boys and girls) of all abilities are welcome.

When are games and practices?  Tee ball meets once per week for two hours on Saturdays from 9am-11am.   Note that we are going to play INDOORS for the first few weeks and go outside in early April.  

We will provide some skill instruction lead by professionals, or each team will practice for 20 minutes before the game.  The season starts in March 23rd and ends June 8th.

Where are games and practices?  Tee ball will be played outdoors at South Ardmore Park.  Indoor location will be determined.  A detailed schedule will be available on your team's site at LMLL.org, and will be emailed by your player’s coach before the season starts.

What do you do in practices?  Coaches introduce players to baseball fundamentals, including proper throwing mechanics, hitting fundamentals, basic fielding skills, the names and locations of field positions, and base running.  We emphasize having fun together as a team, learning positive sportsmanship, and developing players’ confidence in their athletic abilities.

How do tee ball games work?  Players bat off a tee at home plate.  Every batter gets a hit, and advances to first base.  Innings change after all players on each team bat once.  Fielders throw hit balls to first base, and rotate field positions every inning so everyone has a chance to play all positions.  Games should run to about 1 hour and 10-20 minutes or so.  No score is kept. 

What do we need to bring each Saturday?  Players need: (1) a baseball glove, (2) water bottle, (3) team shirt, and (4) team baseball cap.  The team shirt and cap are distributed at the first team meeting.  Players should wear clothes for running (shorts in hot weather are fine).  Players should wear sneakers or cleats (optional); no Crocs or sandals.  Players are welcome to bring their own baseball bats, but that is by no means necessary.

What about drop offs?   At this age group, each player must have a parent (or other responsible adult, e.g., neighbor, grandparent, nanny, etc.) present for the duration of the practice and game.

When will I learn what team my player will be on?  Parents will be contacted (via email) by the player’s head coach approximately the middle of March, who will provide schedule, location, team players and team name, and additional logistical information.  Please be sure we have your preferred email address when you register online.

Do we need to be township residents?  Lower Merion Little League is open to residents of Lower Merion Township and the Borough of Narberth and children that attend a private school in Lower Merion Township.

Where can I find additional information?  We have a Frequently Asked Questions page about our Spring Season baseball programs, on the tabs at left.  In addition, general inquires may be directed to the league at upport@lmll.org. 

Game times and fields are subject to change
