Bethlehem Baseball 21

We are located in Henrico Va, if you are signing up please be sure your residence or school is within our boundaries.
Bethlehem is a special and unique League. We have been around since 1960 and have impacted countless family's and individuals. Our goal here at BLL is pretty simple. We want to be a place for kids. We want them to feel like they are apart of something. For the kids to have a place they feel is theirs and is a source of comfort and joy. To hold their includement into this league close to their heart. If we can provide a place for kids to feel safe and apart of something that is positive and meaningful we have succeeded in our goal. The youth have so many lessons to learn and baseball is a great teacher of life. All the ingredients that go into a ball team and the struggles of learning and playing the game are a very close simulator of what life can bring us. Kids will be tested on character, restraint, courage and other key traits that will help propel them in the game of life.

T-Ball Division

AGES- 4-5 yrs old ( If a 6 yr old has never played their are eligible to play teeball)

See age chart to determine child's age

This division is a non competitive division. You will play on Saturdays only. In past years we play 10am and 12noon. Each Team gets a week day practice and Game on Saturday. Watching these young ballplayers improve each week is really fun. This is a great time for parents to introduce sports to their child by being on a team and learning good lessons. We strive to teach the fundamentals of the game with positive encouragement. Our coaches are volunteers and this divisions is where new coaches are born. Most coaches start in Teeball and progress with their child. Friends will be made and a great environment to be apart of.

Dont need to have a baseball background to coach TeeBall but a desire to be a positive role model. Their are many tools at our disposal for new coaches to learn how to accomplish the goal of a successful teeball season.  Parents will be a big part in this division. As the players get older, they will mature quickly on a baseball field. In TeeBall the kids at these ages will not always perform as planned, but that is expected and the kids will make us all smile as they learn the game. The main goal is to introduce the game, teach the basics, learn the fundamentals and celebrate the learning process the whole way thru.
