MEET THE 2018 NORWALK BABE RUTH 14U REVOLUTION WORLD SERIES TEAM:
NORWALK REVOLUTION 14'S WIN 2018 NE REGIONALS! DEFEAT DEFENDING CHAMPS KEENE NH 3-2 IN 10 INNINGS!
What an amazing game. Drama. Controversy. Amazing plays. Dominant pitching. All equals an incredible win by the Norwalk Revolution 14U team. Alistair Morin and Cole Forcellina kept a hard hitting team under control and the Norwalk boys took advantage of early miscues to jump up 2-0 early. With the game tied at 2 a piece in the bottom of the seventh with a man on third - a blast to right sent the runner home for what seemed the end to our boys dream. But waut. The umpires remained on the field and our Manager Jimmy Benincaso took the shot by asking for a ruling on whether the runner left early - and the umpires ruled in our favor, sending us into extra innings. In the top of the tenth, Norwalk had a runner on third and an errant attempt at a pick off bounced off Jaden Echevarria's back and he raced home for the go ahead run. The bottom of the tenth saw Cole Forcellina hold off the Keene attempt at a rally as Artie Cocchia fielded the game ending out that cemented the win.

Welcome to the 2018 Spring 15U Season!
Thank you for choosing Norwalk Babe Ruth. We're committed to providing the best baseball environment for your player. To do this we are changing our approach a little bit. For the 2018 season, we're introducing Spring Training to our league for all Jr Babe Ruth 15U players aged 13, 14 & 15.
Spring Training will run throughout April and will be the primary evaluation period for all 15U players (except those playing high school baseball). We'll focus on developing and improving our players by providing instruction for all infield and outfield positions, pitching, catching and base running. The goal is to give plenty of time for players to shake of the rust, work on mechanics, try new positions and be completely ready for the season.
Spring Training will consist of three MANDATORY practices weekly for all players. as this is the primary means of evaluation for the team draft, it's imperative that all players participate in all seven sessions.
Tuesdays: @ Brien McMahon High School - 4/17 & 4/24
Thursdays: @ Brien McMahon High School - 4/19 & 4/26
Saturdays: @ Nathan Hale Middle School - 4/14; 4/21 & 4/28
Instruction will be provided by All-American coaches and the spring season coaches. Final evals will be on the last Saturday of Spring Training. Teams will be selected on . All teams will hold individual practices the first week of May (5/1-5/4) with our first games beginning . All teams will play approximately 20 games and we will end the Spring season with a double-elimination City Tournament.
We look forward to seeing you all on the field!
