SPRING TRAINING 2015
Welcome to the 2015 season of Tallahassee-Leon Babe Ruth Baseball. One of the key elements in the Babe Ruth experience locally is our Spring Training program. This six-week curriculum features two primary areas of training - on-field drills/acclimation to the 60/90 field, and strength-conditioning. A separate notice has been sent to parents whose sons are new to our league and thus are required to attend Spring Training.
Babe Ruth Spring Training begins on Monday, March 2 and concludes on Thursday, April 16 (we will skip the week of March16-20 for Spring Break), per the schedule below.
Monday (6:00-8:00pm) - on-field training at Tom Brown Park or Messer Park Wednesday (6:00-8:00pm) - on-field training at Tom Brown Park or Messer Park Thursday (7:15-8:30pm) - strength-conditioning at Titus Sports Academy
The players will need to be in full baseball gear for the on-field sessions, but should wear shorts, a workout shirt and tennis shoes for the Titus training.
Players will be checked in prior to each session. They are permitted a maximum of four (4) excused absences, such as illness, school event or school-approved field trip. Any player with more than four (4) excused absences will NOT be permitted to play when our season begins in early May, and will be removed from their assigned roster.
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!
