Dear Thirteen Year Old Ballplayer (or player new to Babe Ruth League):
The Newton Babe Ruth League Baseball Division serves players who are on April 30, 2014, between the ages of 13 and 15. City-wide tryouts for the 2014 season will be held, following which players will be drafted onto the League’s seven (7) teams.
Play begins on Sunday June 1, 2014. The regular season ends around July 20 and playoffs will be completed by August 9. Players anticipating short vacations or other summer plans which will not seriously interfere with the baseball schedule are encouraged to tryout and play in the Babe Ruth League. We do not intend to schedule regular league games around the July 4th holiday. Tournament team games are expected to be played during that time.
Graduates from Little League are receiving a letter by mail. If you know any 13 year old players who did not receive this letter, or if you know any 14-15 year old players interested in playing Babe Ruth League Baseball for the first time, please be sure to direct them to our website for information and to apply online.
