The West Fargo Baseball Board recently approved the travel team formats for 2016. West Fargo Baseball rules and guidelines for each age group can be found in the accompanying documents. The goal of the Board as it relates to Travel Baseball is to foster an environment that allows more kids to play baseball at a higher level. The format for each specific age group is aimed at accomplishing this goal. We would like to see 2 travel teams at ages 9-12 if the appropriate conditions exist to allow for this. These conditions are outlined for each age group in the accompanying documents. (Please note that National Babe Ruth rules only allow us to have 1 travel team for each age at ages 13-15).
