T-ball is open to all 4, 5, and 6-year-old first-time players. T-ball is an introduction to baseball focused on having fun while learning the fundamentals of baseball, teamwork, and sportsmanship. In T-Ball, players begin by hitting off a batting tee but may progress to hitting coach-pitch as the season advances.

- Nashua Cal Ripken forms teams with the purpose of ensuring an enjoyable experience for players. We use information such as players’ schools, and coach or teammate requests when forming teams. We cannot guarantee we will be able to honor all requests.
- T-ball games last a maximum of 4 innings or 75 minutes.
- Each inning, every player bats (either off of a batting tee or a coach's pitching), using a semi-cushioned T-ball, and plays in the field. Players rotate positions in the infield/outfield. No scores are kept.
- Teams will typically have 1 practice and 1-2 games each week. The season, which begins in late April and ends in late June, includes approximately 12 games.
