Consumer finance site analyzes local homeownership and employment opportunities

Plaaayy T-Ball! This spring, introduce young children to that all-American pastime, baseball, with O’Fallon’s fun and exciting T-Ball program for boys and girls ages 4-5. The rules are similar to baseball but games are played on a smaller field, and instead of trying to hit a pitched ball, batters take aim at a light-weight ball placed on a stationary tee. All kids get a chance to bat, run the bases and field balls hit by other players.

O’Fallon’s T-Ball program will meet once a week on Saturdays for six weeks in Westhoff Park, starting March 21. Games will be played between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. The cost is $40 per O’Fallon resident and $45 for non-residents through February 4, and a $10 late fee will be charged for registration after that date. Registration ends February 19 or when the program fills, whichever comes first.
