2019 FALL SEASON REGISTRATION AND REVOLUTION EVALS

 

We are now opening registration for our 2019 Fall Junior Babe Ruth & Senior Babe Ruth Season. We are planning on starting play after Labor Day and will play through the first week of November.

 We want to thank you for choosing Norwalk Babe Ruth as your fall baseball league. We know you have options and we feel that our league provides the right fit for ALL players regardless of their ability levels.

NORWALK BABE RUTH OFFERS:

Junior Babe Ruth: For the fall, our emphasis is on development. For 12's turning 13, this is the first time on the larger 60/90 field. We hope to make that transition as painless as we can. No evaluation required - players will be placed on teams.

 

Senior Babe Ruth: The fall season is to build on the experience gained in Jr Babe Ruth and allows us to move players around and test them in positions they may have wanted to play but have not had a chance. No evaluation required - players will be placed on teams.


Revolution: 
Is an evaluation based selection for advanced players. All players are welcome to try out. Usually, NLL or NCR District level players are the expected experience level. The travel program for the fall is used to develop players and to see players at positions they are not used to playing. Revolution players will be facing a more aggressive schedule and competition.

 

FAQ's:

  • Eligibility: Graduating 12's are eligible for Babe Ruth in the fall. In the spring, they need to be 13 on or before May 1st. Registration numbers will determine age divisions, but following our success this past spring with a combined 15U (13-15) that is our current plan.
  • Evaluations: We don't offer tryouts in the fall for Jr/Sr Babe Ruth as not all of the players are available and frankly, we tend to take the back end of August for vacations. 
  • Fields: We play 60/90 fields - same as high school. We have 4 in Norwalk: BMHS, NHMS, Roton MS & City Hall. We do not offer 50/70 as we feel our league is to prepare for high school play.
  • Competition: For Jr/Sr Babe Ruth, we play a Norwalk vs Norwalk schedule as well as surrounding towns with Babe Ruth programs: Fairfield, Darien, Stamford, Weston, Wilton, Trumbull, Danbury, Newtown, Ridgefield etc. For Revolution it is a combo of the above as well as AAU teams in the East Shore or Hudson Valley Travel Leagues.

REVOLUTION TRAVEL BASEBALL - SUNDAY, AUGUST 25TH, 12-4 @ NHMS

 

For the Fall Season Norwalk Revolution will field teams in the 13U, 15U and 18U age groups. These teams will be invite and existing Revolution players. The 13U team targets graduating 12's from the youth league District All-Star teams.  Players selected for the fall Revolution team are not guaranteed a position on the spring 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: 5:45 - 7:45PM @ Brien McMahon High School - 4/17 & 4/24

Thursdays: 5:45 - 7:45PM @ Brien McMahon High School - 4/19 & 4/26

Saturdays: 10 - 12:30PM @ 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 onSunday, 4/29. All teams will hold individual practices the first week of May (5/1-5/4) with our first games beginning Saturday 5/5. 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!
