Interested in playing in All-Stars (aka District Qualifier)?
The 2017 Babe Ruth District Tournament Qualifiers will begin later this month and we need to determine how many teams we can send. There's a 13, 14, and 15 year-old category, all beginning on the weekend of 6/24 and lasting through that week. Please see what results you can get back to your coach or to the snack bar by Tuesday evening.
I apologize on the urgency, but Babe Ruth Central District is trying to get fields and dates lined up based on the number of teams participating in each of the age groups.

Tonight's game has been postponed
April 17, 2017
We were informed the Paso frosh tournament no longer has Alvord reserved, thus opening up Friday and Saturday again for practices and games, which is good since the rain is now forcing us to postpone games.
Tonight's (Monday, 4/17/2017 @6pm) game is being postponed to Saturday, and Bob is adjusting the schedule. Time on Saturday is TBD.

For this weekend (4/1), last Saturday's rained out games will be played, Giants vs Pirates at 10:00 and Angels vs Cubs at 1:00.
The 3/22 rain out will be played on Monday, 4/3, Angels vs Giants at 6:00.
Tues., 4/04 will be the Cubs vs Pirates at 6:00.
Today's games (Saturday 3/25/2017) are rained out
All games are cancelled today (Saturday, 3/25/2017) due to higher than anticipated rain overnight, causing standing water on the infield and swampy conditions in the grass at Alvord Field.
No make-up game tonight

No make up game tonight for the Giants and Angels
Thursday night's game is a GO
Tonight's (Thursday 3/23/17) game is GREEN for GO. Mark Miranda and Bob were able to drain the field. Pirates vs. Cubs @ 6 pm.
Another postponed game due to poor field conditions (rainout)
March 22, 2017
Alvord Field is unplayable today (Weds., 3/22/2017) due to standing water in the infield in four places. Outfield is more than likely swampy also. The AHS Freshman have cancelled their practice at the field and we will not be able to have the Angels vs. Giants game tonight.
Tonight's game postponed
March 21, 2017
Late drizzle causing issues for the field. Bob is cancelling tonight's game and is tentatively planning to move it to Thursday.
Field is ready for tonight
March 21, 2017
We are GO for today's game starting at 6pm. Pirates vs. Cubs.
Saturday morning games adjustment
March 16, 2017
All, there's an error on the March Babe Ruth schedule: All Saturday morning games are supposed to start at 10am, not 11am. Please make the appropriate adjustments. Thanks.
Game Delay for Saturday's 1pm game
March 15, 2017
Game delay on Saturday: The 1pm game, Angels vs. Pirates will be moved to 4pm. There is a funeral service occurring at the Atascadero Veterans Memorial at 1pm and we felt it would be better if we started our event later.
Game change/Practice swap
March 13, 2017
Game change: The Wednesday, 3/15 game (Cubs (H) vs. Angels(V)) game is being moved to Thursday 3/16 because there's an orientation for incoming freshman at THS(?) on Wednesday. Many were going to be unavailable to play that night. We were able to get umpires for Thursday as of this morning (Sunday), so we were able to successfully move Wednesday's game to Thursday. Game time Thursday will start at 6 pm.
Practice change: The Thursday 3/16 practice for the Giants from 6-8 pm has been moved to Wednesday 3/15 (6-8 pm), so if you look at the March schedule, Wednesday and Thursday have been swapped.

Player Draft is complete!
February 26, 2017
2017 Atascadero Babe Ruth "Season 1" Players and Parents:
We had a successful player draft tonight, and the coaches should be in contact with you by Tuesday evening, Wednesday at the latest. Practices will begin this week at Alvord Field and your coaches will have the practice schedule.
The only thing that may slow the practices down from starting are two things: 1) The tree that fell behind left field is a hazard and the branch hanging into the field needs to be removed, 2) The batting cage net is in-process of being installed. Both items should be complete before the end of the week.
Opening Day will be March 11th.
Weather tentatively shows no rain until at least mid-March.
I look forward to seeing all of you at the field!
President, Atascadero Babe Ruth
