Tee Ball Rules

 NAMPA BABE RUTH LEAGUE, INC.             
 
   
TEE BALL DIVISION
 
MISSION - The Nampa Babe Ruth Baseball/Softball Program, using regulation competitive baseball and softball rules, teaches skills, mental and physical development, a respect for the rules of the game, and basic ideals of sportsmanship and fair play. In all aspects, Babe Ruth League, Inc. is committed to providing our participants the very best educational sports experience possible. It is our fundamental belief that every child with the desire to play baseball or softball be afforded that opportunity. 
 
PURPOSE  - Ballplayers ages 4-6 years of age learn hitting and fielding fundamentals in a fun and supportive team environment. Young athletes hit the ball from a batting tee which is height-adjusted for a level swing, batting in order through the line-up for the entire game. The primary goal is to begin to instruct young players in the fundamentals of baseball and develop a love for the game.  
 
SPORTSMANSHIP  - Nampa Babe Ruth League, Inc. is focused on putting kids first above all else. Our primary consideration is, and always will be, what is best for the youth of our community. For this reason it is imperative that we follow and fully support the Babe Ruth League’s Sportsmanship Code, which states:
o Develop a strong, clean, healthy body, mind and soul
o Develop a strong urge for sportsman-like conduct
o Develop an understanding of and respect for the RULES
o Develop courage in defeat, tolerance and modesty in victory
o Develop control over emotions and speech
o Develop spirit of cooperation and team play
o Develop into real, true CITIZENS 
 
Nampa Babe Ruth (NBR) also requires that all coaches, players, and parents agree to adopt and follow our written “Code of Conduct and Responsibilities” guidelines which have been created by the Board of Directors.

COACHES - Each year our biggest challenge is finding enough coaches for each Tee Ball team. This is largely due to the fact that players and families are newer to our league and to baseball. Existing coaches often move up to higher divisions as their kids get older leaving a need for future coaches.
