T-Ball (Ages 5-6):

  • T-Ball is an instructional game, not to be won or lost, but to have fun while learning. Players will be taught the basics and fundamentals of baseball, while using a tee. However, there will be a set number of coach-pitched balls prior to the tee being used. Players will learn how to run, throw, hit, catch, and field. T-Ball is designed to provide maximum playing time and enjoyment for all players, not to stress winning strategy or competitiveness.
     

  • Teams sizes vary from 10-14 players. Practice days will vary by team, but most will meet one to two times a week pre-season, then some will only meet once a week to practice, pending game schedule. Each team will usually have games one to two times per week. No score is kept.  Bases are approximately 45 feet apart with the Pitcher's Plate being set at 27 feet from Home.
     

  • TJB provides participation trophies for all T-Ball players at the end of the season.  However, our T-Ball league does not participate in post-season All-Stars or have an end-of-season tournament.
     

J-Ball (Ages 7-8):

  • The J-Ball League is for 7 and 8 year old players.  The bases are 60 feet apart with a pitching rubber set at 40 feet from home plate.  This league is coach pitch and scores are kept.
     
  • J-Ball is a big learning step for kids to learn the fundamentals of baseball and really understand them.  This league will help players by getting them ready for the next level of baseball.  Although winning is fun, this league is about teaching the kids all season long.  It's the coaches responsibility to accomplish this throughout the season!  Hitting, throwing, fielding, and good sportsmanship should be the main goal for coaches, parents and kids.  We all want the kids to have fun, learn a lot and have a great experience with baseball through TJB!
     

Minor (Ages 9-10):

  • The Minor League Division is for 9 and 10 year old players.  The bases are 60 feet apart with a pitching rubber set at 45 feet from home plate.  At this level, players do their own pitching for the first time and are also allowed to steal bases.  There are approximately 11 regular season games.  In addition, all teams participate in a single elimination Mid-season Tournament and a double elimination End of Season Championship Tournament.
     
  • As with all leagues, the Minor League is governed by the Ohio High School Athletic Association baseball rules with special exceptions written by Troy Junior Baseball.  The team coaches are volunteers.  It is the coaches responsibility to teach each player the fundamentals of baseball, good sportsmanship and fair play.  All players receive equal playing time.  Competition and playing to win is encouraged, but is secondary to teaching solid baseball skills and building character.
