USA Baseball requires new bats for 2018 Season
USA Baseball, in conjunction with all major Youth Baseball Organizations, including Babe Ruth, Cal Ripken and Little League, have enacted new bat standards for 2018 season. Any bats that are in use today, will no longer be allowed this coming Spring Season. Any bat used next season must have the USABat logo so the league and our umpires know that it complies with the new standards.
Here's a link to the announcement on the Babe Ruth website. Our league sponsor, Dick's Sporting Goods, also has great information, as well as a video, on their website. Remember to use the coupon that is printable off our homepage!

The Matawan Aberdeen Babe Ruth league has always and will continue to led by our dedicated volunteers who act as managers, coaches and board members and allow this league to run and teach out children the "American Pastime".
We are currently looking for volunteers to coach at all levels of the league, but in particular, in the Tee Ball and Pitching Machine age groups.
We are also looking for prospective Board Members to keep the league running efficiently and plan for the future to ensure the league remains financially sound, while continuing to make the necessary investments to make improvements at Toomer field and around the league.
New for 2017, we are looking for a group of parents to join our Diamond Club which will help us run our snackstand during the 2017 season, as well as work with the board on other fundraising opportunities for the league. We are looking for 5-6 volunteers this season and will waive one registration fee as a thank you for your efforts.
