Does Your Child Want to Play Baseball? Here's the Perfect Age to Start & What to Try First for Safety!

If your child is interested in playing baseball, the best age for him or her to start playing is 5. That's the age when he or she can join a T-ball team, which provides a great introduction to the sport. 

At age 5, a child’s hand/eye coordination and ability to concentrate really start to develop, and that plays a huge role in keeping kids safe on the field. How many times have you been to a game and a child is more interested in the grass than the ball in play? That can be a dangerous combination. 

Starting with T-ball allows kids to develop skills while having fun!
