Springfield Babe Ruth welcomes Little League graduates as well as new and returning players for the 2018 Season! SBRL is proud to offer a fun and competitive experience for players ages 13 and up. SBRL offers recreational leagues and competitive travel teams in 3 different age divisions: Prep, National, and Senior leagues. Please refer to our age chart to determine what division to register your player.
As we have been doing for over 60 years, Springfield Babe Ruth welcomes the next class of 13 years olds to the start of the second half of their baseball career, now on a professional sized baseball diamond. The 90' fields you will play on resemble what MLB, college, and high school players play on. As you get accustomed to the bigger field, you will experience baseball in a whole new way.
We look forward to another great season!

Springfield Babe Ruth knows that for many reasons players like to play with friends and coaches they have played with before and coaches like working with players they have coached before. For these reasons it is now possible for players to stay on teams they have played on the previous season. This has been a very successful policy in our senior league for many years and we have now extendeded it to the 13-15 age division. This policy also extends to teams coming out of Little League that would like to stay together as they transition to Springfield Babe Ruth. We are still preserving our younger leagues (Prep, International and Major Leagues), but it is now possible for teams to form up as Prep teams and stay together until they reach our Senior league. If you have questions about this new policy, please inquire about it when you register this year.
