Welcome to Charlottesville Babe Ruth League

Charlottesville Babe Ruth League

Registration Listing

Spring 2020 Baseball

The Charlottesville Babe Ruth League offers boys and girls the opportunity to have fun learning the game of baseball from dedicated coaches and volunteers. The League accepts registrations for our Babe Ruth division from boys and girls who will be thirteen (13) years old before May 1, 2020 and who will not be seventeen (17) years before May 1, 2020.

Babe Ruth League, Inc. allows for players who are 12 years old to participate in Babe Ruth League play as a "swing" player.  Players who are aging out of Little League who are "league age" 13 by Little League Rules, but who are "league age" 12 by Babe Ruth rules are eligible to play in the Charlottesville Babe Ruth League and should register and play with us. Please contact the league with any questions.

For those players who are planning to play Middle or High School JV baseball, our spring schedule will accommodate you. Many Middle and High School JV programs end in early May, and our season continues through the first week in June. From there, we'll have summer All-Stars so players wishing to have a longer baseball experience should plan to play with us in addition to school teams. Our rules are designed so that player positions will not interfere with school teams. Please contact us if you want further clarification.
