Welcome to the home of Elk Grove Babe Ruth Baseball - Youth Baseball for 13-18 year olds
Fall Ball Sign ups are open for Fall Season starting in September.
NOTE - 14 - 16 division is currently full. You can sign up online without paying to be put on a wait list.
We have 2 divisions: One for 13 and under players just entering the league, and one for league ages 14-16. The player's age as of 4/30/18 determines who belongs in what group. We will accept players who will be 12 years old as of 4/30/18 but they must have permission from their local Cal Ripken League to play Fall Ball. This is a great opportunity to play games on the full size field with players of like age. We have had as many as 6 teams in either division. We play 12 games, mostly doubleheaders on Saturdays from the Saturday after Labor Day to mid October. We do play some weekday night games (Tues or Wed) under the lights starting at 6:30 pm.
For those new to the league, there is no east and west in Elk Grove Babe Ruth. Our boundaries cover all of Elk Grove and stretch outside of the city boundaries. There are fields on the east side and on the west side. All teams will likely play at all of our fields.
The 14 to 16 year old division also plays the same type of 12 game schedule. This is for returning players or players who will be 14 but not yet 17 by 4/30/18, it is the last chance for our 16 year-olds to play in the 14-16 division (those 16 year-old players cannot pitch in fall ball.)
Sign ups are available on line under On line forms (see left menu)
Note that we are also seeking Coaches and Managers for Fall Ball. Volunteer Coaches must pass a certification test through babe Ruth. www.baberuthcoaching.org This league is a fun league and great way for Coaches and players to hone their skills while enjoying baseball. If you would like to coach, contact Joe Matlen at firstname.lastname@example.org or 916-747-6252.
