Empire State Baseball League Sponsors  

      

          

Empire State Baseball League is the only travel baseball program in the Capital Region partnered

with both Babe Ruth League, Inc and Cal Ripken League, Inc.

Welcome to Spring (almost),

 

Over the last few months ESBL and our supporting Leagues have been charting a new course for our 13yr old – 15yr old program which we are very excited about. 

 

We feel the changes we will be implementing will help bridge the gap between the younger players and older players in both your local Leagues and the ESBL program and improve the flexibility and competitiveness of the Travel program.

 

These efforts have pushed back our League wide managers meetings a few weeks, which I know was concern for many of you, however I feel the efforts put forth will pay dividends for all of our players and Leagues as we move forward.

 

As such, I am happy to announce that we will be holding our 8yr old – 12yr old Managers meeting and 13yr old – 15yr old next week, however we will have a bit of a different format to the meeting.
