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 has been involved from its inception with the creation of the Hooes Road Park Baseball field under a cooperative agreement with Fairfax County Park Authority. Groundbreaking began in 2003 with the clearing of what used to be a soccer practice field.
Hooes Road Park is a one of the larger 90’ fields in Fairfax County measuring 310 to left field, 330 to center and 280 to right. In 2004, field construction began with the grading, layout of the pads for the stands and the backstop.
In 2010 Sringfield Babe Ruth added the roofs over the dugouts and added the dual back to back batting cages.
A couple of, years later, 2012, Springfield Babe Ruth added the pitching mounds along first and third base.
Springfield is committed to making the Hooes Road Park baseball field one of the finest in the Fairfax County Recreation Department. At some point we plan to install a scoreboard beyond the centerfield fence.
The Hooes Road Park Baseball Field is primarily used by the Springfield Babe Ruth 15U teams. It is also used by adult teams.
