Babe Ruth League, Inc. is a non-profit, educational organization dedicated to developing better citizens by providing properly supervised baseball competition for players 4 through 18 years of age. Established in 1951 and incorporated in 1952, there are now over 59,000 teams competing in over 10,500 leagues in the United States and Canada.
Unquestionably, one of the primary reasons for the success of this organization is the rules and regulations which have been established through democratic procedures, with the guidance of professional recreation directors, high school athletic authorities and college coaches.
The foundation of the organization is Babe Ruth Baseball (13-15 year olds) playing on a regulation baseball diamond. Selection of this age grouping on the regulation-size infield was made originally after studies among professional youth authorities indicated favor for this basic concept.
Our totally favorable experience the past 56 seasons, in which thousands of Babe Ruth League teams have played, clearly endorses this decision. The physiological development of 13-15 year old junior high and high school students dictates the use of the regulation diamond under slightly modified regulation baseball rules. Younger players rapidly adjust to the larger diamond with the assurance no further adjustment in throwing, pitching, etc., will ever be needed in progressing to older age teams.
