January 18, 2013 Children as young as four years of age are eligible to play Little League, beginning with Tee Ball. Little League International has created a new program for Tee Ball-age players (ages 4-6); and their parents or guardians, that is specifically designed to provide a foundation and introduction to baseball and softball that is grounded in fundamentals, fitness and having fun. Registration for the NEW Tee Ball program at the Little League Coaches Resource Center (CRC) is free and available here. “Community is the cornerstone of Little League,” Stephen D. Keener, President and Chief Executive Officer of Little League Baseball and Softball, said. “Welcoming the youngest Little Leaguers into our program through Tee Ball is the first step on what we strive to make a wonderful experience during their formative years. “Parents enjoy on a similar experience with their children,” Mr. Keener said. “We expect that through the development of the new Little League Tee Ball program, both the young children and their families will come to realize that Little League is not about making great athletes. At its core, Little League is about laying the foundation for tomorrow’s leaders and teaching some of life’s lessons.” For generations of Little Leaguers, their first steps between the lines came in Tee Ball. The same is true of volunteers entering the Little League program in support of their children. Understanding and appreciating the significance of those first steps, Little League International set out to develop a program intent on embracing those moments and creating positive, exciting and educational experiences for children and adults. “What we have designed is a program that will allow children to play, socialize with their friends and have fun,” Nicholas Caringi, Little League International’s Senior Director of Operations and Education, said.
