Babe Ruth Baseball, our Seniors league, was created for ballplayers who wish to continue their baseball playing experience beyond the age of 12. TAYBS will be participating in the 13, 14 and 15-year-old division, which is where many players get their baseball cleats muddy for the first time on a standard 90' diamond under the Official Baseball Rules used by Major League Baseball. These games consist of 7 innings, have a 10-run mercy limit, allow leading, unlimited stealing and both the drop third strike and infield fly rules are in effect. Our league participates in the Central Mass Baseball league.
The games start the week of April 19th and go thru the week of July 12th.
There are 22 regular season games in total, with 2-4 games per week.
Practices will be held two to three days per week starting in April and continuing thru the end of the season. The days of the practices are the decision of the head coach and can fluctuate throughout the season.
Only the top half of the teams will participate in a single elimination playoff tournament.
Home games will be played at either Allen Field or the North Middlesex High School Field.
Away games will be played in either Ashburnham, Ayer, Clinton, Fitchburg, Gardner, Leominster, Lunenburg, Narragansett, Pepperell, Shirley, Sterling or Westminster.
13 and 14-year-old players are allowed to use USABAT certified bats, as well as BBCOR bats.
15-year-old players must use a BBCOR bat.
We anticipate having two teams of 11-14 kids each
