Congratulations to PAPOA for a thrilling come from behind victory in last night’s Prep League Championship. The Oaks led 5-2 going into the bottom of the 6th, but could not hold back the storming Police who put up 7 runs to capture the crown 9-5. Thank you all for a great Prep Season!

Due to the rain, Saturday’s 3pm and 6pm games have been postponed to a later date.

Today, Saturday May 18, the 15U League kicks off its season with games at 11am, 3pm, and 6pm. Games will be announced by John Atkinson and Dave Fowkes of KCBS radio, with music provided by our local DJ extraordinaire Kirk Swezey.

Our snack bar will be open and league programs will be available. Enjoy a day of baseball at Baylands, and bring some good weather with you!

PREP LEAGUE

There are no tryouts or cuts, so every player who registers is guaranteed a spot to play in this season which runs from March to May. Our Prep Season is a developmental league designed to help younger players develop their skills on the full-sized diamond and prepare players for our 15U Season.

It includes two weeks of preseason clinic-style practices, a player draft, and an eight week season featuring one practice and two games per week for each team culminating in a fun City Championship Tournament. The league features minimum playing time rules to allow all players a chance to play in each game.

The Prep League is open to all 7th and 8th graders, as well as any high school student not on a high school baseball roster. Full refunds are issued if a player makes his/her high school team and is unable to play Prep, so there is no risk in registering. Registration is $425.

Join the fun: We're a volunteer, community-based league, so we welcome all families to apply for Manager/Coaching spots or Board Member roles. Just let us know during registration!

15U Season (May-June) - Registration Closed.

Posted by Rick Farr at Apr 29, 2019 5:00PM PDT ( 0 Comments )

Palo Alto Babe Ruth invites you to register for our upcoming 2019 15U Season. Explore our home page to learn more about Palo Alto Babe Ruth. Click the link above to go directly to the registration site.

15U LEAGUE

This season runs from mid-May through the end of June. This is a more competitive league than Prep League, but many of the players who participate in the Prep League will have the opportunity to play on a 15U team.

Our 15U tryouts will be held on Sat, April 20 (3-5pm at Baylands) and Sun, April 28 (12-2pm at Gunn High School). Players in our Prep League do not need to attend the 15U tryout since the Prep League serves as their tryout.

Following the tryout, a draft will be held on April 30 where selected players will get drafted onto a 15U Team for the duration of their Babe Ruth careers. If your child doesn’t get drafted onto a 15U Team, you’ll receive a 100% refund, which means there’s really zero downside to registering. Our 15U Season is fairly compact, allowing players to enjoy Babe Ruth with minimal travel ball conflicts and fully participate after their high school seasons have finished.

At the end of our 15U Season, the top four teams earn the opportunity to compete in our coveted City Championship Tournament. Registration is $450 and closes April 28.

Join the fun: We're a volunteer, community-based league, so we welcome all families to apply for Manager/Coaching spots or Board Member roles. Just let us know during registration!.
