Registration Open for 2015 Babe Ruth Season
Registration for the 2015 season of Tallahassee-Leon Babe Ruth Baseball (TLBR) is now open. Team tryouts will take place in late November. All players trying out, including those who participated last season, must be pre-registered by the closing date of November 9.
Entering its 61st year of operation, Tallahassee-Leon Babe Ruth provides an elite baseball experience for players as they adjust to the full '60-90' field. During the 2014 season, over 120 players were part of the 8-team league. Six teams were directly affiliated with Leon County high schools while two open teams rounded out the league. Games are played at local high school fields and City of Tallahassee parks.
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.
Following the 2014 season, TLBR fielded Allstar teams in all three age groups, with the 13U and 15U teams winning their respective state tournaments and moving on to Southeast Regional tournament play. TLBR teams have won five World Series, and alumni include many players who have gone on to outstanding high school and college careers, with several reaching the minor and even major leagues.
