Springfield Babe Ruth welcomes Little League graduates as well as new and returning players for the 2019 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, as well as a competitve travel program. Please refer to our age chart to determine what division to register your player.
Registration for the Spring 2019 season is now open. Click HERE to register. Please note, all new players (including new players that participated in Springfield Babe Ruth this fall) are required to show a valid birth certificate or passport at walk in registration at Wshington Irving Middle School on Saturday 1/5/19.
ATTENTION: New rising 13 year olds, if you were born on or after May, 1 2006 and prior to May 1, 2007, you ARE eligible to play up as a 12 year old in SBRL's Prep Division (13 y/o). This means that if you have aged out of Little League but are still 12 years old according to Babe Ruth's age chart, you are eligible to play in the Prep Division (13 y/o).
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.
