T-Ball provides an opportunity for girls and boys to actively participate in learning the game of baseball under conditions favorable for their age. This seven-week supervised program is designed to teach basic skills in fielding, throwing, and batting, and to further their knowledge of the game of baseball.

Depending on time and location, the program meets twice per week in either a Monday and Wednesday or a Tuesday and Thursday format. Programs begin on June 2 and 3. The cost for 14 50-minute sessions is $50 for Johnson County residents or $55 for nonresidents.
