Rosters are being Finalized for 2015 Babe Ruth Season Check the 2015 Registration Information Button to the left for updates.
On 12/15 we had nearly 30 boys trying out for the open positions as part of the 2015 Tallahassee-Leon Babe Ruth baseball season. Between 10-15 more were not able to attend but we are hopeful they will be able to make it to the final two tryout sessions. These will be held this Thursday, December 18 at 6:30 PM and Friday, December 19 at 3:00 PMat Tom Brown Park's Senior Major League field. We urge those who attended last night to try and make it to one of the final two sessions, and certainly request those who were not able to join us last night to attend at least one if not both of this week's final tryouts.
We know that the timing with mid-term exams and the holiday season makes it difficult for some. Therefore, we solicit your understanding that we are up against very tight time constraints. The TLBR board is cognizant of the issues and will make every reasonable effort to give each boy a fair chance to show their skills. Communication is paramount so if there are issues preventing your son's attendance to at least one of the remaining two sessions we ask that you drop us an e-mail ASAP at email@example.com with contact information.
The entire Tallahassee-Leon Babe Ruth Baseball board sends our appreciation for your understanding and support, and our best wishes for a wonderful holiday season!
TLBR is open to players ages 13 through 15 (16th birthday cannot be before April 1). Fees are $275 for 13-year olds, $250 for 14-year olds and $225 for 15-year old players. The fees include a 6-week 'spring training' session that's required for incoming players but welcome to all. This session stresses both refinement of baseball skills important for players transitioning to the larger field, but also strength and conditioning training. The spring training begins in early March and is held through mid-April, with the regular season running from late April through mid-June.
As always, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. We appreciate your support ... and let's play some ball!
