Welcome to the home of Elk Grove Babe Ruth Baseball - Youth Baseball for 13-18 year olds
We have 2 divisions for 13 and under players just entering the league. The player's age as of 4/30/18 determines who belongs in this group. We will accept players who will be 12 years old as of 4/30/18 but they must have permission of their 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 this 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 under the lights starting at 6 pm or 6:30pm.
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.

Elk Grove Babe Ruth Baseball is proud to offer the best baseball experience in the Valley. We pride ourselves at being the oldest youth sports league in the Elk Grove Area. Teaching Love of the Game Since 1962. Our basic program runs from March 1 to mid June with 22 regular season games. Pre season with practices and practice games runs from approximately March 1 to April 1. April to early June we have a 22 game season with our Tyler Routt Memorial Mid Season Gamer All Star game on May 7, 2017. Post Season (one week immediately following the final season 4 play off games and a League Championship game on the Saturday following the end of the season) In cooperation with Galt Babe Ruth, our league offers challenging competition on a regulation size field, with a emphasis on fun and sportsmanship. If you are thinking of High School baseball then this is the league you want to join. If you just want a fun baseball experience, we feel we provide that also.

2017 Elk Grove Babe Ruth 16-18 Team has been cancelled
We are sorry to say that due to not having enough signups and no volunteers to coach, the Elk Grove Babe Ruth 16-18 League has been cancelled for 2017. We have a long tradition of offering a safe and fun place for players of all ages to play baseball against other local teams. With all the other sports and interests for kids these days it appears we cannot field a 16-18 team this year. We plan to offer this team next year for any 16 to 18 year old players who are willing to participate. For those few players that signed up this year, again, I am sorry and you will be refunded soon. Good luck and Play Ball!
Next Board Meeting is July 17, 2017 time 7pm at Bartholomew Sports Park meeting room. For further details, contact President Robert Kilbride at EGBRpresident@yahoo.com.
