Our T-Ball / Coach Pitch Leagues are entry level leagues for 4, 5 and 6 year olds. The focus of the league is to introduce young players to the game and establish fundamentals and game knowledge.
T-Ball (4/5 yr old): Bat a ball from a tee. Players may not turn 6 before May 1st of the current year for Spring/Summer ball and may not turn 6 before May 1st of the subsequent year for Fall ball to be eligible.
Coach Pitch (6 yr old): The Coach will pitch to each of their own batters. Players may not turn 6 before May 1st of the current year for Spring/Summer ball and may not turn 6 before May 1st of the subsequent year for Fall ball to be eligible.
Summer Session (T-Ball & Coach Pitch):
The season begins in mid-April and runs through the end of June. Each team will play a 10 game league schedule and a season ending Double Elimination tournament...(tournament is for Coach Pitch only). Games will be played (Mon - Thurs & Saturdays) with 6:00 & 7:15 pm start times...you will not play every day, only a combination of dates each week.
Fall Session (COACH PITCH ONLY, T-Ball is not offered in the fall):
Season begins in mid/late Aug and runs through until mid-October. Each team will play 10-games (no tourney for fall ball). Games days are typically Mon-Thur ... holding Fri, Sat & Sun open for makeup games (the days are subject to change).
Each game is a 1-hour time limit.
All Coach Pitch games will be played at Bartlett or Eagles Field 1 in St. Joseph, MO
Practice times are determined by your Coach, not by the league.
By registering as a Coach, this does not mean you will be guaranteed a team. PEB will screen all coaching applications / background checks and the Board of Directors and League Directors will select the coaches that best fit the position.
To be considered for a Coach position, you will need to complete the Coaches Application and the online Background Check on the PEB website (if you coached in the prior session and had the background check completed, you do not need to do another for the current session):
* Coaches Applications are available online
Coaches will be notified around early April for Spring/Summer ball and early August for Fall ball if they were selected.
