Sharks players can also qualify for selection to the Springfield Babe Ruth All Star Tournament teams by participating in Springfield Babe Ruth League play from April through mid-June. Alternate tryout arrangements may be available for interested players that are unable to attend on March 25.

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!

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.
