SBRL Spring 2020 season cancelled
The primary concern of the Springfield Babe Ruth League (SBRL) is to provide a healthy and safe environment for all of our players, coaches, and families. In the current environment, we must all take the threat posed by the COVID-19 pandemic seriously. We urge all of our families to adhere to the latest guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Virginia Department of Health, and Fairfax County.
After careful consideration of the safety and well-being of all participants, the SBRL Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to cancel the entirety of the Spring 2020 baseball season. This applies to both the National (13-15 year old) and Senior (16-18 year old) levels.
We are providing all registered SBRL players and families the following choices regarding fees already paid for the Spring 2020 season.
Please indicate your preference by filling out our online Spring Registration Fee Choice form by May 1, 2020. After that date, all remaining registration fees will be applied to credit for a future season.
For any correspondence regarding Credits or Refunds, please include "CREDIT" or "REFUND" along with the player name in the subject line. Processing a large number of these requests is unprecedented for SBRL and will require significant effort on the part of our volunteers. Please bear with us as we process your requests.
Thank you and we look forward to seeing you all again as soon as conditions allow,
Bill Amatucci (President)
Karen Markey (Vice President of Operations)
Scott Wise (Vice President of Administration)

The Springfield Babe Ruth League (SBRL) is offering the opportunity for advanced players to play on teams in the Northern Virginia Travel Baseball League (NVTBL). During the league season, the players will have a unique opportunity to play single NVTBL games on Sundays and league games during the week. After the Babe Ruth season, the travel teams will play additional games in NVTBL Travel players will also have the opportunity to vie for positions on all-star teams that will compete in the BR all-star tournamnets. SBRL initiated this travel program in 2016 with the Springfield Sharks 18U team competing in the Varsity Division. In the fall of 2017 a 14U team was added. To these teams we are planning on adding a 13U and a Junior Varsity team in the spring of 2018.
