FALL BASEBALL 2019 

Looking to play more baseball in September and October?

 

The more you play – the better you play!

 

Greater Westfield Babe Ruth will sponsor teams in fall baseball leagues for all levels of play! We know there may be potential conflicts with fall soccer and football so rosters will be set with this in mind. Players will be divided up so teams will be as even as possible. Player fees noted below will cover the league fees including a team T Shirt, equipment and umpire fees.

12, 13, and 14 Year Olds (not in high school)

 

The player's involved would be current Babe Ruth and Senior League 13 and 14 year-olds (not in high school) from the 2019 season and Little League 12 year-olds interested in making the transition to the large field for the first time. Fall baseball is a great time to work on your baseball skills and to have fun. Current Babe Ruth coaches have offered their time to coach these teams.

Plan is to play games with Easthampton, Northampton, Agawam, Amherst, Southwick, Gateway, Greenfield, and others. Games will be played on the weekends during September and October. Home games would be played at Jachym Field. The fall season would begin around Labor Day Weekend and will continue until the end of October, weather permitting. The fee to play at this level will be $80.00.

High School Age Players

In order to provide the best level of baseball competition to help you improve your game Westfield Babe Ruth will join with other teams in the area and play in the High School Fall Baseball League that has been in existence for 20 years. In the past there have been teams from East Longmeadow, Springfield, Southwick, Ludlow, Greenfield, Enfield, Longmeadow, South Hadley and others that have been involved in the fall league.

Two separate leagues will be formed…National League (for varsity level teams) and American League (for JV level teams).  This approach is being taken to promote a more competitive environment for all teams.  Varsity level team(s) will be existing varsity players or varsity candidates, as high school juniors and seniors.

The JV level team(s) will consist of incoming freshman and sophomore players. Depending on the number of players that are interested in playing we may field one or more teams. The general rules are to have juniors and seniors on the varsity level team(s) and incoming freshmen and sophomores on the JV level team(s) unless already on a varsity team.

League play will begin on or about September 1st and continues through the last weekend in October.  Games will be played on the weekends only with games being scheduled on Saturday and Sunday. Each team will play a minimum of 10 games. There will also be a JV and Varsity Level All Star game in early October. The cost to participate in the high school league will be $125.00.

Remember to compare the cost for these teams to what you might pay for other “travel programs”!
