Dear Players and Families,

 

We hope this message finds you safe and healthy during these challenging times. 

We have been informed by the Town of Arlington that parks and fields will remain closed until June 29, and we have canceled the 2020 spring season. We are in the process of planning a Summer/Fall season. 

We continue to heed the guidance from our local and state officials as well as Babe Ruth Baseball.  We are preparing for some form of baseball this year, but we are awaiting guidelines in order to finalize our plans and then launch a season.  Right now our plan is to play during the week and leave the weekends free for any vacation plans.   

Soon you will see a registration email for Summer/Fall baseball.  All players that have registered and paid for the Spring season, will be able to participate in our Summer/Fall baseball free of charge.  For any new or unpaid players from the spring, there will be a small fee.   

REFUNDS and CREDITS 

All of our graduating 15 year-olds will receive a full registration refund minus a 4% administrative fee for credit card processing. 

All other registered players will receive a full registration credit towards the 2021 Arlington Babe Ruth Spring Season.  

Please reach out to league president Tom Ahern if there are any questions or concerns around the refund and credit process.

We wish you continued good health during this trying time.

 

Best Regards,

Arlington Babe Ruth Board of Directors

2020 Baseball

 

April 11, 2020

 

Dear ABR Players and Families,

 

We hope everyone is healthy and safe as we navigate through this unprecedented time.  We want to share periodic updates on the plans of when we will be resuming baseball and what it will look like for the 2020 season.  

 

We continue to heed the stay at home advisory through May 4th and are monitoring both state and local guidelines as well as Babe Ruth updates.  We are hopeful that we will have a baseball season this year, it is just going to look a bit different than years past.  

 

We have set a target date to start the Spring season by May 15th provided it is safe to do so.  In the event that May 15th will not work, we will cancel the Spring season and begin the process of scheduling our Summer and Fall programs.  Those players registered and paid for this Spring season will have the option to receive free summer and fall baseball (this year)  and apply the money spent this season to next Spring’s registration.  You may also request a refund.

 

As soon as more information is made available to us, we will communicate with you.   Thank you for your patience during this difficult time.  Please stay safe and healthy!

 

Best Regards,

Arlington Babe Ruth Board of Directors

Babe Ruth Life Cycle

Babe Ruth Life Cycle
For the players, coaches, and managers, it generally starts at the Fall tryout.  Many players may get a taste of the “big diamond” from the "fallball " or "summerball" programs and the managers start the assessment process for the following year. The winter months settle in and the manager notes are put aside. There may be winter clinics to attend to work off that winter rust. In March, spring is not that far away and Babe Ruth has another tryout, so kids can once again showcase their skills to the managers and coaches of the current 10 teams. The kids then nervously wait to see which team they will be on with a new season about to begin. As managers and coaches, we evaluate all the players to ensure that we are placing the players at the appropriate levels. Some move into the "A" level called the seniors, while others play in the "B" level called intermediates. The kids are drafted to an affiliate (one senior and one intermediate team) and continue to work together until the final decision on which players will play in the "A" and which players will play in the "B" division. Then the season begins and before too long, the season is nearing an end. Another year passes and kids graduate and the rookies move up a notch to veteran status. The managers and coaches are all volunteers who all work to ensure that the over 130 players have a positive Babe Ruth experience.
