Babe Ruth

Updated Monday December 4, 2017 by Waxhaw Baseball.

Waxhaw Baseball offers Babe Ruth.

1) 13U - Boys age 13 as of April 30.  The 13 year olds play separately as they adjust to playing on a regulation size field for the first time.

2) 15U - Boys age 14-15 as of April 30.

3) 18U - Boys age 16-18 as of January 1.

Practices & Games

 Teams have two practices per week depending on coach and field availability.  If you have any practice time conflicts, please note those in the comment sections during the registration process. 

Practices are held at  H.C. Nesbit Park (behind Kensington Elementary School).

Teams play a 12 game schedule with teams playing no more than 2 games during a week.

Waxhaw Baseball partners with neighboring Babe Ruth Athletic Associations in scheduling the season for Babe Ruth - as such, some games will be away from H.C. Nesbit Park.  Babe Ruth games are 7 innings and have a 2 and a half hour time limit.

 

Equipment Needed

The registration fee covers the cost of the uniform.

Each child will also need a baseball glove.  Cleats are not required but are recommended. Metal cleats are allowed for Babe Ruth play; however, some fields we play at may request turf shoes (don't allow metal cleats on their mound). Many players have their own helmet and / or baseball bat, but it is not required.

See 'News' area of the website for the Baseball Bat regulations.

 

Fees

Registration for Babe Ruth is $250.  The fees cover the cost of league and state registration fees, insurance, equipment, field maintenance, umpires, utility costs and uniforms.

 

 

Coaches

Coaches at this level are volunteers.  They willingly give of their time and energy to our young players.  In return for their efforts they receive our appreciation, memories made with the children and a group of smiling faces.  Please consider becoming a coach.
