Exciting News for the Spring 2018 Season!

The SBSA Board has decided to move our boys baseball program to Cal Ripken/Babe Ruth for the 2018 Season.  Below will help educate you on how our teams will be divided.

 

Cal Ripken Baseball Division - Ages 4-12

Keeping baseball FUN-especially in the early stages of youth baseball-is a primary concern of Babe Ruth League's Cal Ripken Division, which is comprised of the following divisions:


Major Division: The most experienced level of Cal Ripken Baseball, recommended for 11 and 12 year old players. Cal Ripken Baseball is played under the Official Baseball Rules, but implements some special rules as necessary for the development and welfare of this young age group. Under the Major Division, our boys will play the Major/70 division. Games consist of six innings. In order to encourage the league to train more pitchers, there are rules that set the maximum number of innings a pitcher may pitch in a calender week.

Major/70: Featuring a 50' pitching distance and 70' base paths, this division is offered as an option to the major division format, and includes a tournament trail from District competition through the World Series in Branson, MO at Ballparks of America featuring 8 International Champions. 

Minor: Recommended for ballplayers ages 9-10. Players build and refine their fundamental skills while beginning to understand game strategy and teamwork. In most regions, participants first experience post-season tournament competition in this level, leading to the 10 Year-Old World Series.

Rookie: Designed primarily for ballplayers ages 7-8, this division makes use of a pitching machine to allow for more hittable balls at the plate and more action in the field. Fear of actually being hit by a pitched ball is diminished. It makes the game safer and improves the playing confidence and ability of all participants.

T-Ball: Ballplayers ages 4-6 learn hitting and fielding fundamentals in a supportive team environment. Young athletes hit the ball from a batting tee which is height-adjusted for a level swing, batting in order through the line-up for the entire game. The primary goal is to begin to instruct young players in the fundamentals of baseball in a supportive team environment.

 

Babe Ruth Baseball - Ages 13-18

13-Year-Old Prep 

Players often express a fear of competing with 14 and 15 Year-Old players who have already experienced one or two years playing on a standard 90' diamond. Babe Ruth League introduced this prep league-comprised of teams with only 13-year-old players-to foster more participation in the game for this age group.

Ages 14-15

14 and 15 Year-Old players who have already experienced one or two years playing on a standard 90' diamond will play together 

Ages 16-18

The highest and most accomplished level in Babe Ruth Baseball. A favorite among high school players and coaches, this division prepares players for collegiate recruiting and the proffessional draft. This division allows players a chance to compete through a tournament trail to reach the 16-18 Year-Old World Series.
