| O-T Lounge|| What kind of bats do kids use for Tball? - Ghostfacedistiller on 3/2/14 at 5:58 pm|
Buying a bat for a 4 or 5 year old. It occurred to me I don't know what this entails. Standard aluminum like baseball? Is there anything special to consider? Don't want to get the wrong thing.
I never played Tball and have no personal experience with it.

This is not really about the show, but more culturally. It's a documentary that aired on CBS tonight about 3 marching bands in New Orleans (O Perry Walker was one), their teachers and generally their trials and tribulations.
