Babe Ruth Tryout & Bat Info

Hello Babe Ruth Families:

Registration is now closed for the Spring Season and we will have tryouts on Tuesday January 26th from 6 to 8 PM at Veteran's Park. Please have your son at the field at 5:30 for sign-in and warmup as we will begin promptly at 6:00 PM.

Please have your son bring the proper baseball equipment, glove, etc and if they are a catcher they need to bring their equipment.  We will have players evaluated for fielding, batting & pitching.

The draft will be completed by weeks' end and each player will be notified by their coach of their team assignment.

As of this moment we plan to have 4 teams and are making arrangements to inter-league with North Ft Myers and Cape Coral.  Please be aware that our secondary field at Golden Gate Community Park has had 2 of their light poles fall and the use of that field for spring is in doubt.  We are working on secondary facilities and it may take some time to secure those additional facilities.

Please NOTE that BAT Changes have been implemented for youth baseball and the following Bat Rules are in effect. There will be NO exceptions to this rule this Spring Season.  

League Aged 13 - 1.15 BPF & USSSA Markings must be present - big barrel and small barrel. There are no weight or material restrictions.  

League Aged 14 -14u will only be able to use a weight/length differential of -5 or -3 & no longer be able to use non (BBCOR) stamped composite bats. 14u Approved Bats:  -5 Alloys or any -3 BBCOR (No Composite Bats are allowed)

Leagued Aged 15 - BBCOR -3 Bats are approved.
