T Ball Trophies and Awards
When someone starts playing baseball on a team as a youth, it is most likely through the organized youth sport of tee-ball. Tee-ball is a great way for our young people to try out the sport of baseball in an incremental fashion. Instead of pitching the ball, it is placed on a stationary pedestal, or a tee (like a golf ball is placed on a tee), hence the name tee-ball. The ball used in tee-ball is softer, so if a player is hit by a ball, it doesn't hurt as much as a regulation baseball. Because the ball is stationary, it is easier to hit with the bat. Youngsters can then focus on learning the basic baseball skills – hitting, running, and catching. What a great way to introduce our youth to the truly American sport of baseball. Strangely enough, there are several variations of the spelling of tee-ball, including tee ball, teeball, tball, and t-ball.
Because t-ball is usually a young person’s first introduction into organized sports, it is a good idea to provide encouragement and heap praise on the little players so they will want to excel and continue in the sport. This is a perfect example of where participation trophies are appropriate. Participation trophies have gotten a bad rap in recent years – and some of it is justified, but most is not. Participation trophies are appropriate in some instances and not in others. The appropriate use of participation trophies is when the goal is to encourage all the players and reward them for merely participating – for showing up to practice each week and showing up to the games ready to play. This type of reward is perfect for very young players – under 8 or 10 years of age. At QuickTrophy, we custom make all our t-ball trophies when you order them.
