I’m excited to announce the start of the South Charlotte Recreation Association (SCRA) Babe Ruth League, 13-14 year old division. We will be fielding 2 teams this Fall and registration is now open, so please see below for information on the program. If you have any questions, please reach out to the league coordinator,
PROGRAM DESCRIPTION AND POLICIES
Founded in 1951, Babe Ruth Baseball League was created for ballplayers ages 13-15 who wished to continue their baseball playing experience beyond the age of 12. This is where players get their baseball cleats muddy for the first time on standard 90' diamonds under Official Baseball Rules used by Major League Baseball. In this division, teams are eligible to enter tournament competition and move along the tournament trail, culminating in a World Series. Three World Series are held in this division: one for 13 Year-Old players, one for 13 and 14 Year-Old Players, and the renowned 13-15 World Series. Players will be evaluated at 6 open practices, over the course of 10 days and it’s in the player’s best interest to make as many practices as possible. Teams will be chosen on August 25, with practices starting the week of August 26. All practices and home games will be played at JM Robinson Middle School’s baseball field. Registering does not guarantee you a spot on a team and if your player does not make a team, your registration fee will be refunded immediately.
Sport Fee: $280 Fee includes Uniform (Jersey, Hat, socks, belt), field rental, maintenance and umpires.
Practices will begin after the teams have been decided. Until games start you can expect to practice 2 times during the week and once on the weekend. Games will begin after Labor Day and run through the end of October. We will be participating in the Union County Babe Ruth League (UCBR). Away games will be played at different fields across both South Mecklenburg County and Union County. All practices and home games will be played at JM Robinson Middle School’s baseball field.
