Kid Wipes Out Hard After Swinging Baseball Bat Super Hard

One of the first things that you learn when playing baseball or tee ball as kid is to not swing as hard as you can at a ball. This is so avoid wiping out when you swing like this little tee baller does. That kid is swinging for the fences, the crowd, the food carts and the parking lot all in one swing. He does not quite make it bat to ball contact. Though he does manage to make, bat to Tee-tube and body contact, so there is that.

Despite baseball being around since at least 1744, with more modern versions mentioned as far back as the 1830s, Tee Ball has only been around since the 1950s. Something we found quite surprising when looking up the history of the sport. Today, most kids start in tee-ball leagues before transitioning into coach pitch and later fast pitch. There are a number of people associated with the invention of sport but it appears to have been something that happened simultaneously across the United States throughout the 1950s.

The sport wasn’t trademarked until the 1970s. This was done by a pastor from Milton, Florida and actually run by a Christian group called Gospel Projects, Inc. We did not know this but that group asserted the Tee Ball moniker until 2009, the last year that they published their book of official Tee Ball rules. Apparently, a secular organization was started to get around having to deal with Gospel Projects and they used the slightly more common spelling of T-Ball and to help spread the sport at a national level versus just in Florida. Trademark is a tricky legal beast.
