Registration is now OPEN for the 2021 Babe Ruth season. This spring, there will again be a Russiaville Babe Ruth division for 13-15 year old Western students. Click the Registration Ribbon on the rybl.org home page and select "Babe Ruth 2021" upon signing up/signing in. The registration fee will be $135. We will accept registrations until April 15. After that, players may be allowed to join, only if additional players are needed.
Our teams will enter in the Howard County Babe Ruth league as Russiaville teams. There are two sub-seasons for the season, Spring Season (doubleheaders on Sundays from late April up to Memorial Day Weekend) and Summer Season (games mostly on weekdays after Memorial Day through the end of June). At the conclusion of the Summer Season, All Star players are selected from all the teams in the Howard County Babe Ruth League to form a Howard County All Star team for each age. Regular season games are played at various facilities in the area. Babe Ruth teams that we may compete against are Taylor, Greentown, Peru, Maconaquah, and others. Players will be assigned to a team when the spring season is near. Coaches will evaluate players at practices, rather than tryouts, this winter/spring to select teams with balance. The league accepts players who play on other teams, such as Western school teams or other travel teams.
At this time, it is anticipated that the season will return to the normal timing of late April – June with 24 games, plus all stars in July. Last season, we modified the season to a mid-June to mid-July format with 16 games and eliminated all stars. As future circumstances warrant, the season schedule is subject to change. Rest assured, all efforts will be made to have a full and meaningful season of baseball in 2021.
If you have questions, please contact us by texting or calling Scott Sipes at 765-404-3495 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Practices will begin in late winter for the 2021 season, so complete the registration soon so we can contact you with practice dates, times, and locations.
