It's Just T-Ball ... and much, much more!

The Boys and Girls Club of Redding-Easton defines the approach to our T-Ball Program with two simple statements:

It's Just T-Ball!
We don’t keep score at T-Ball games. No one strikes out. Everybody bats and plays the field. And everyone gets a “hit” and scores a run … every inning. It’s ALL GOOD! Our first priority is to ensure that every one of our kids is comfortable and enjoying the positive experience of learning the simple basics of the game.

We just want our children to have fun playing T-Ball. In fact, we expect our children to have fun. Lots of fun! We want Friday and Saturday afternoons to be the highlight of their week. We want T-Ball to be something our kids and their parents remember as a fun, positive experience for years to come.  Why is fun so important? 

Because ...

It's NOT Just T-Ball!
Our T-Ball Program is the entry point into Redding Cal Ripken Youth Baseball and Redding-Easton Little League Softball programs, which means it is the lifeblood for the future of baseball and softball in Redding.

The little boy who today doesn’t know first base from third base this spring, could be a starting pitcher for the Joel Barlow Varsity 10 years from now … or the girl who put her glove on the wrong hand today could hit a home run in a U12 sectional all-star tournament six years from now. You never know, unless they both have a positive experience this season and return for more next year.

Simply put, we want to continue to build baseball and softball programs that get our kids excited about the game and get their parents committed to encouraging them.  And it all starts with T-Ball.

More importantly, Redding T-Ball is for many kids the first introduction to essential social concepts including teamwork, friendship and sportsmanship. Encouraging and instilling these ideas in our children is also part of the fun.

So, yes, it’s just T-Ball.  But it’s also about building a future for baseball and softball in Redding-Easton, and helping our children reach their potential. Our T-Ball Program takes this responsibility very seriously.


We are dedicated to making sure your child enjoys a great sports experience!

Is Redding T-Ball for both boys and girls? What ages?
Our T-Ball Program is open to both boys and girls in pre-school and kindergarten, ages 5 and up.

What kind of equipment does my child need for T-Ball?
The only essential piece of equipment your child needs for T-Ball is a glove for fielding. A good glove will be 9 to 10 inches (the size will be stamped on the glove) with a deep pocket area, where your child will catch the ball. You can find gloves by reputable manufacturers like Wilson, Rawlings, Mizuno, etc., at many local sporting goods stores for about $25. Cleats are recommended, but not required. Your child’s coach will be supplied with at least one bat, a dozen soft baseballs, helmets, etc.

Will my child be receiving a uniform?
Yes. Redding T-Ball provides every player with a jersey (including team name/sponsor and number), along with a cap.

Can I request that my child be placed on a team with his/her friends?
Yes. You may put in a request to us through the registration process or via email, and we will do our best to accommodate your request, but we cannot guarantee a particular placement.

When and where are games and practices held?
All games and practice times will be determined closer to the season.  Games are usually held Friday evenings and Saturday mornings.  There is no practice time during the week. Games are held at our local fields in Redding (BGCRE and RCC) and Easton (ECC for softball).

How do I sign-up to become a coach, assistant coach or team parent?
As you register your child, you will see an option to volunteer as a head coach, assistant coach or team parent manager. Once we receive your request, we will contact you regarding our various coaching clinics and other resources to prepare you for the season.

How do I become a T-Ball Sponsor?
If you are interested in becoming a T-Ball Sponsor, we thank you very much for your support!  We offer four sponsorship opportunities: Team Sponsorships, Web Site Sponsorships, Fence Banners and Special Events. These options are outlined in the online registration form you will use as you sign up your child for the upcoming season.
