What's the Best Age for Kids to Start T-Ball? (VIDEO)Serge Bielanko
That institution of lightly organized chaos that marks the beginning of a long life of lightly organized chaos for young boys and girls across this great land. Some of my very earliest memories are rough sketches of moments in my t-ball career, believe it or not.
I remember running wildly over dirt and grass with people cheering from the stands even though I had no idea what I was running to, or from, or for. Come to think of it, I don’t think they were actually cheering for me after all, but whatever. I had fun, I think.
And that’s the goal, huh?
Yet now as a father of a little girl who likes to have a good time, but who hasn’t really shown me one way or another that she is ‘ready’ for t-ball (how do you know? aren’t all kids pretty much ready for outdoor madness?), I am wondering hard if I should take the plunge and sign her up this year, when she has just turned 4, or if I should give her another year?
So, help a daddy out if you can.
Have you had a child in t-ball before, or are you getting ready to have one this year? And if so, are you confident that your 3 or 4 year-old will have a blast out there, or are you a little leery about it?
For those of us wondering about the monumental ‘T-Ball Question’, I am throwing in this very cool little video I found on YouTube that makes a really good case for the greatest game in the world played by the most awesome players in sports history.
