Salem Beverly Babe Ruth offers competitive, instructional baseball for 12 - 15 year old players at a fraction of the cost of private club teams. Teams are typically mixed with both Salem and Beverly residents and each season, every attempt is made to split up the teams as fairly as possible. There are no cuts in this level of play - every player who signs up will be assigned to a team.
The season gets under way when we are given permission to access the fields. This is all dependent on the spring weather and the field conditions, but it typically happens toward the end of April. We will hold player evaluations for every player who signs up - again, not a tryout - and then select teams. Players will then be contacted by individual managers about practices. Games will typically start in early May and every effort is made to wrap up the season by Independence Day.
All volunteers working with Salem Beverly Babe Ruth pass annual, national background checks and adhere to fundamentals taught in the Babe Ruth League Child Protection Risk Management Program.
