Babe Ruth League has implemented new bat rules for the 2018 season that will affect all divisions of post season tournament play. It has not been determined yet if these changes will go into effect for our local league in the 2018 season. We hope to have a determination on this by Jan 30, 2017. We will send out another message once this has been determined.
Below is a breakdown of the changes. Please be aware of these when purchasing bats for this upcoming season as they may only be good for 1 year.
The tryout date for all ages of Travel baseball will be March 12. Exact times are yet to be determined, but no tryout will begin before 12:00 noon.

Starting in the summer of 2017, it has been decided that the 7/8 Year Old age group will no longer play on Friday nights. With this decision, league games will be played on Monday-Thurs nights. However, the nights for each age group are still being determined.
