We have seen the need for a baseball program which better prepares our young players to move up through the various playing levels, and ultimately prepares them to play at the high school level.
Especially in the early stages of youth baseball, it is a primary focus of the Cal Ripken-Babe Ruth program to keep baseball fun while teaching fundamental skills with an emphasis on sportsmanship and teamwork.
Please join us in building a great baseball league for our children and our community as we
pursue the well established Babe Ruth League objectives of more than 60 years...
