SportsEngine Registration: Elk Grove Babe Ruth

2023 Spring Registration

Welcome

Welcome to the Elk Grove Babe Ruth 2023 13-16 Year-Old Spring Registration!

 

This registration session will allow you to complete contact information, sign up for participation, and submit payment for the Spring 2023 Season.   Regular Spring Season fees are $240, Supplemental Players $190.  Early Bird Special $45 discount available for Full Time players & $30 for Supplemental players registered by 1/1/2023 (will show up as $195 for Full Time Players and $160 for Supplementals at check-out)!  Clothing items included in the fee will be gray pants, team shirt, team cap, & socks.

 

We will conduct a full 22 game season and to give high school players the opportunity to join us for the latter half of the season.  Typically the “Supplementals” will get 11 games at the end of the season. 

 

We are planning on tryouts on Saturday February 4 and Saturday February 11, 2023, with a rain makeup on Wednesday February 15 and Saturday February 18 as needed.  Additional dates and times to be confirmed at a later date in case of rain.  Players should only attend one tryout.  It is possible that there will be a mid-week tryout under the lights if we feel it is necessary.   Drafting of teams should be complete by late February, practices will start around March 4 and continue through the month of March, and the regular season would start around Saturday April 1, 2023.  Exact dates and times will be sent in a separate communication.   Supplemental players would start playing in the early part of May, once high school freshmen and JV schedules are complete, and the season would conclude around Saturday, June 10.  Playoffs would begin after that, and conclude around Saturday, June 17. Again, dates and times will be confirmed as they approach.

 

In keeping with safety protocols because of the pandemic, we will ask spectators to create some space in the stands and fully utilize portable chairs to help disperse the crowd. Sharing of equipment is best to avoid, so for those that need it, we can issue helmets or catcher’s gear to some players to hold onto for the entire season. However, we encourage each player to at least have their own bat and helmet. Bats must be BBCOR or USA branded. Max diameter is 2 5/8”.

 

Assuming Babe Ruth League all-star tournaments are back to normal, those selected for all-stars would start practice the Monday after our league championship game. Depending on how the teams perform, all-stars could be 2-3 weeks, up to 8-9 weeks, although a long run like that is exceedingly rare. Most teams fall in the 2-3 week timeframe, with a few possibly going for 4-5 weeks.

 

Eligible birthdates are 5/1/2006 to 4/30/2010. Those with birthdates from 5/1/2006 to 4/30/2007 (league 16 year-olds) will not be allowed to pitch. Birthdates from 5/1/2010 to 4/30/2011 could possibly be approved to play, but on a case-by-case basis and only with permission from the appropriate Cal Ripken league. Go to www.eghardball.com to sign up – please do so by Feb 21, 2023.
