NORWALK BABE RUTH BASEBALL
The fall season is approaching and we want to provide an update on what Norwalk Babe Ruth (NBR) offers for it's house and travel programs.Each fall we get questions on age eligibility, so here's the specifics: players that are 12 but have completed LL or CR are eligible to play as 13's. Each existing or new player will be playing one age up from the previous season (2018 13's now move to 14's etc).
The Fall season starts right after the Labor Day holiday for both Jr/Sr Babe Ruth and Revolution.

The 2018 season saw some big changes to Norwalk Babe Ruth Baseball. We took big strides to prepare the players for the season and to get the young incoming thirteens ready for the larger field.
In the month of April, all of the registered Junior Babe Ruth players (13, 14 & 15) not on a high school team took to the field twice a week to get ready. Multiple stations, instruction and many, many reps prepared them for the season. Returning players shook off the rust and incoming players learned the complexities of the larger 60/90 field. Our goal is to work with the players and make the game one they can enjoy and compete in.
In 2018 we had six teams in Norwalk Junior Babe Ruth. Each team played in our local Norwalk league in highly competitive games. The teams were evenly rostered with a mix of new and existing players as well as each team having high school players added as soon as they were released from their teams.
THE CITY CHAMPIONSHIP
The spring season came to its close with an exciting double elimination city tournament. We saw the lowest seeded team blast through the field and take the championship undefeated. This was a great wrap up to an exceptional season.
Two teams were selected to continue on as summer All-Stars. The teams participate in a summer league against teams from Fairfield County.
13 PREP SUMMER CLINIC
Our inaugural 13 Prep Clinic is a new addition to our program. We take graduating twelve year olds from our local youth programs and bring them onto the 60/90 field in June. Initially scheduled for Sundays, we quickly added a second day mid-week giving these players six hours of field time preparing them for he fall season and games.
