Details

T-ball (also teeball) is intended as an introduction for young children to develop ball-game skills and have fun. The principal difference between tee-ball and Coach Pitch is that the child usually hits the ball off of a stationary tee; the ball is generally not pitched. Thus, tee-ball allows a young child to learn the skills of batting, catching, running the bases, and throwing, while making it both easier to hit the ball and less likely for batters to be injured since they do not need to dodge wayward pitches. The ball is also softer.

Coach Pitch is a team sport to help develop boys and girls baseball skills and to have fun. At this level, the players advance from using a Tee and receive pitches from one of the coaches.

Softball is a variant of baseball played with a larger ball. Softball rules vary somewhat from those of baseball.
