Babe Ruth

SENIOR BABE RUTH BULLETIN!

 

Attention Senior Babe Ruth Players!!!

Rumor has it.  Rumor has it that Danbury Baseball is on the decline.  Championships, Trophies and Wins are all distant memories in Danbury.  Baseball Glory is fading…a thing of the past for Danbury Youth Baseball. 

There is nothing, nothing to those rumors and let us prove it!!

Registrations in Danbury Youth Babe Ruth are up!  Spring Babe Ruth Registrations exceeded last years by a full team.  And this summer is shaping up over last summer to show an increase as well.  In fact we are anticipating 3 Senior Babe Ruth Teams for the Summer Season compared to barely 1 last summer.

I am excited to announce that Danbury Youth Senior Babe Ruth Baseball teams will participate in the Housatonic Valley League this summer.  We participated with that League last summer and had a great experience.  This year promises to be even better.  Expect a schedule and tournament of up to 22 games this summer with teams as familiar as Ridgefield, Newtown to new opponents from Fairfield, Shelton and Naugatuck.  Registration Fee is estimated to be $225.00.  The Summer Travel the season will start shortly after Memorial Day and run through the first week in August. 

But that’s not all!  I saved the best for last! 

This year we plan to field a Senior Babe Ruth Team that participates in the Districts and/or State Championship Senior Babe Ruth Tournament.  We plan to conduct a tryout or otherwise select the Best of the Best from our Summer Teams to play for the District 4 Championship* and beyond.

For the Tournament Team: Player vacations of up to 2 weeks will be considered but must be made known during tryouts and may affect decisions.  This is a District Tournament Team and will follow the Babe Ruth Tournament Trail depending on success which may involve Travel Out of State.  The 18U Tournament Trail:  District 4 Site to be Determined*, Recommended June 23-30; CT State - Stamford CT, July 7-15; NE Regional – Keene NH, July 21-30; World Series – Ephrata WA, August 5-12.  The

"Travel" will include up to 18 games against Western CT League Babe Ruth Travel Teams, plus a playoff run, and for some the District and State Tournaments which would supersede some "Travel" games.  An additional fee for the Tournament Team will apply and will include District and/or State Tournament.  Regional and beyond may involve additional fees or fund raising.

*There wasn’t a District 4 Tournament Last Year – By default The Ridgebury Rays represented District 4 in the State Tournament

Babe Ruth National

Babe Ruth National - BRN 13 year old

Players moving to BRN are now playing baseball on the same size field as major leaguers. One fundamental change is games are played to 7 innings instead of 6. The biggest transitions for players moving into BRN are; base running and adjusting to different pitching speeds as well as the overall pace of the game.

Players also learn what it takes to try out for a high school team.


Babe Ruth American

Babe Ruth American - BRA 14 - 15 year old

Players in BRA continue to refine their skills and learn game strategy. Some of the objectives in this division are to teach players patience at the plate and develop baseball knowledge.
