BELMAR, NJ — T-ball for children age 3½ to 5 will be offered this spring by Belmar’s Recreation Department.

A simplified version of both baseball and softball, T-ball is designed to help children develop their ball-game skills in an instructive, yet fun environment. It’s usually recommended for youngsters before starting Little League play.

The season will kick off during the week of April 20, with games beginning at 6:30 p.m. at Behrman Park, located off 18th Avenue (near the railroad tracks) in Lake Como.

Teams will play once a week with the season expected to end in early June. The number of teams will depend on the number of children who sign up, said recreation director Barry Trogu.

In addition, parents who volunteer as coaches are crucial to the program’s success, he added.

The cost is $50 per child. The registration deadline is Sunday, March 15 and can be made for players and coaches by clicking here.
