Teeball games are meant to be instructional, not competitive. Please help to promote this positive atmosphere by encouraging your child and by appreciating the small triumphs of all players on both teams.

Welcome to the online home of Brighton Heights Athletic Association's teeball teams. The number one priority for BHAA's teeball experience - designed for boys and girls ages 6 and under - is for the kids to have fun and experience the ups and downs of achievement. Along the way, they will learn the basics of baseball/softball.


Teeball practices and games are held on Tuesday evenings from 6:00 - 7:30pm, and on Saturday mornings at 9:00 - 10:30am. The season runs from mid-April through June.  An official schedule will be shared with teeball families once teams are formed by mid-April.

Here are the basics of teeball games:

  • Teeballers play games of roughly three innings each (depending on attention span).
  • Each player bats each inning and plays the field each inning.
  • There are no official outs, but defensive players should be offered appropriate congratulations for good plays.
  • Coaches will pitch five to seven pitches to each player. If the player fails to make contact, they will then be offered the batting tee from which to hit.
  • The last player up to bat for each team hits a "grand slam" and clears the bases to end the inning.
  • The score is of little importance with this age group. In fact, coaches and parents should refrain from announcing scores to the children. Instead, opt for creative ways to suggest a tie or a victory by both teams.
  • Parents are encouraged to cheer for both teams.

Teeball Night at McDonald's
BHAA's youngest class of ballplayers will meet their coaches and get their uniforms when they attend Teeball Night at McDonald's on Tuesday, April 18th from 5pm to 8pm at the Ohio River Blvd location (Bellevue area). Plan to stay for dinner, as BHAA gets 20 percent of all food sales during the event. Plan to be there to make sure your teeballer is outfitted in time for Opening Day.


Rookie Ball Perks!
BHAA's teeball program is registered with Pittsburgh City BIG League Sports' Rookie Ball/Junior Pirates program. Through this affiliation, our teeballers receive Pittsburgh Pirates' T-shirts and baseball caps and two tickets to Rookie Ball day at PNC Park, usually held in late summer.


It's A Zoo Out There!
Crabs, alligators, and birds. These are just some of the animals that our teeball coaches use to teach basic baseball skills and to create a fun atmosphere for our youngest players. Get involved and learn how these animals' behaviors can help your child learn to throw, catch and field.
