Travel Baseball

2014 Recreation Season

Games will begin the 1st week of April.

New this year, we will have an Opening Day Ceremony on April 5th at our Skimmer complex! All team and individual pictures will be taken on this day as well.

 

League Fundraiser

The past several years we have partnered with Chevy and participated in their sweepstakes. The funds raised from this sweepstakes provided the bulk of the league’s operating budget (Equipment, Uniforms, Umpires, Balls, etc.) Though still a supporter and contributor to our baseball program, Chevy is no longer running their annual sweepstakes. Unfortunately, we were not able to identify a substitute fundraiser this season. This year we are asking that each family contribute an additional $25 for one player in the league and $40 for 2 or more players to help offset the cost of the league. This money will be collected in conjunction with uniform pick-up (Date and Time TBD). Players who participate will be eligible for a randomly selected participation prize to be awarded on Opening Day.

  • Any bat discovered prior to the game that does not conform to the above rule shall be directed to be removed immediately and not be allowed for use during the game. 

 

If you have any questions on approved or non-compliant bats, do not hesitate to contact Babe Ruth Headquarters.
