FALL JUNIOR BABE RUTH ONLINE REGISTRATION IS OPEN
FOR 13 YEAR to 15 YEAR OLDS!


Please CLICK HERE to register online today
DEADLINE 9/5/17, 12:00pm

            As a reminder, there are no tryouts and we do not make cuts.  We are looking for committed players who aim to try out for the HS team in the spring and those who have played Babe Ruth baseball before. If you will age out of Little League and 50/70 in the Spring 2018 you are eligible to play Babe Ruth in the Fall 2017, an opportunity to experience the game on the big field and prepare you for HS baseball.  We will have a professional coach assisting us during practices. 

           

Notes:

  • LL Players who will be age-eligible for Babe Ruth by April 30, 2018, can move up to Babe Ruth to get an extra season playing on the bigger field. The overlap with LL age eligibility is deliberate.
  • 15-year-olds who played Spring Babe Ruth are eligible to play one more season of Fall Ball even if they have turned 16 in the meantime.

· REGISTER TODAY! We need to know how many players ASAP.

Fees: The fee is $275 per player.

Fees cover the cost of uniforms, umpires, baseballs, insurance, league fees, team equipment and a paid professional practice coach. We would like all eligible kids who want to play to be able to play. If the registration fee poses a difficulty please contact John Jepsen (jrjepsen19@gmail.com) separately and we will work something out.
  
Tryouts: There are NO try-outs. 

Registration: The registration can be completed on line at www.westonctbaseball.com. Checks should be made payable to Weston Babe Ruth and sent to John Jepsen (11 Tobacco Road). For insurance reasons we need completed paperwork before your son takes the field even for practice.

 NO PAPERWORK, NO MONEY, NO BASEBALL.

Background: We compete in the Fairfield County Babe Ruth District (District II) which is made up of teams from Westport, Wilton, Fairfield, Darien, New Canaan, and Stratford. We will only field a team in the Majors bracket.

   
Comments: At this point we are only planning on fielding a Majors team where there is less focus on basic technique and greater focus on developing situational awareness - the role of each player at each position in game conditions. We try to help the boys get better at a game they love and prepare them for High School baseball.
 
We do not make cuts. Your sons are entering the stage in baseball where position specialization will occur. Usually by the end of the season each boy has a primary position that he plays regularly and a secondary position that he plays occasionally. There are no rules that dictate that a player play a minimum number of innings in the infield. Some boys because of their abilities will become natural outfielders and may not play in the infield during the season.
 
As a heads up, playing time throughout the season becomes more meritocratic as well. All kids who show up for practices and games will get a chance to play, however, you may start to see that on a team with 13 boys - 5 of them play the whole game while 4 play the first half of the game and 4 play the second half. We play with real baseball rules - including substitution rules - so kids cannot play every other inning as in Little League.
  
In the Majors the batting order is 9 plus an Extra Hitter, at the coach’s discretion. Batting as the Extra Hitter is considered an important role and in the coaches’ eyes is considered playing time. Substitution in the field also means substitution in the batting order.
