2019 Fall Ball (evaluations are 8/24 1:00 and 8/25 3:00)
Click here (for registration form)
LaGrange Babe Ruth is once again offering a Fallball option for 2019! Like last year we will be partnering and participating in Westmont’s Fallball program. Fallball is open to all players that meet the age requirement (no younger than 13 on August 31, 2019 and no older than 15 on April 30, 2019). That means all players that participated as Jrs in the regular season are eligible.
The season will start after Labor Day. There will be evaluations on 8/24 at 1:00 and 8/25 at 3:00. Evaluations will be located at Veterans Park in Westmont (see attached flyer for address). These are not tryouts since all players will be placed on teams. Evaluations are designed simply to balance teams evenly.
The signup sheet for participation is attached. Simply click above. Signup sheets can be dropped off or sent to Westmont Park District (address on attached form). If you are interested I would suggest signing up sooner rather than later. Last year late registrants were turned away to maintain team size.
We are excited to offer this opportunity again to LaGrange Babe Ruth. Last year participation was high and the feedback from the players and parents was very positive. If you have any questions feel free to contact me or George Kelecich (630) 640-4267.
All the best....Rajer (312) 953-9800

2019 Jr. & Sr. Playoffs Are A Resounding Success
Two coaches teamed up to win the Senior and Junior crowns in the La Grange Babe Ruth baseball league this summer.
Dave Dattalo and Jeff Gianone joined forces to coach their teams to titles in each league, perhaps a first in the long history of La Grange Babe Ruth.
One day after their Black team won the Senior Title – beating Navy 9-8 in the championship game after a 2-1 win over Green and a 6-5 win over Maroon – they were back at it for the Junior Title.
Dattalo and Gianone did not have sons on the junior team, but still answered the call to manage a team.
Their junior team won its first two playoff games with great pitching by Aidan Wirtz and Mark McHugh, beating the Blue Jays, 7-1, and the Red Sox, 20-3.
After losing 10-0 to the Giants, they managed to beat the Red Sox in a rematch, 4-3. That set up a title showdown against the Giants, who had yet to lose in the playoffs.
James Villanueva, who had not pitched all season due to an injury, relieved Wirtz in the fifth inning and sealed a 10-5 victory in the first game with the Giants.
That set up a winner-take-all game.
The Pirates won the title with a 15-4 rout led by the pitching of McHugh, Wirtz and Villanueva, along with some timely hitting by the entire team.
