Orcutt Babe Ruth: Welcome

Monday, February 2



General Registration for the 2015 Spring Season has been extended through February 7th!!!

General Registration is underway and will run through February 7, 2015.  Cost of registration is $120.  All registrants will also be required to pay a $20 snack bar fee.  This additional snack bar fee is refundable to you during the season if you choose to work a snack bar shift.  Otherwise, this fee will be used to pay local youth to work in the snack bar.
 Online registration is available by clicking on the "Register Online Now!" link located above.
Otherwise you may arrange to register in person by contacting Carlos Silvas via phone at 264-4150, or via email at imlos@yahoo.com.
Registration is open to all youth ages 12-15 years old who live or attend school within the Orcutt Babe Ruth boundaries.  For questions regarding boundaries, and/or to inquire about other registration opportunities please contact Carlos Silvas at (805) 264-4150, or via email at imlos@yahoo.com. 
Register by February 7, 2015, and all you pay is $50 for registration.  Additionally, the $20 snack bar fee will be waived during this time. 
With the High School baseball season approaching we understand you may be hesitant about registering for Babe Ruth baseball at this time.  The following are reasons why there is no risk, and why you should take advantage of this deal:
1.  The $50 registration fee is refundable.  If you decide not to play Babe Ruth baseball following the conclusion of your High School baseball season you get your money back.
2.  If for some reason you do not end up playing High School baseball and decide to play the full Babe Ruth season, all you will pay is an additional $50, for a total registration fee of $100.  We will still waive your $20 snack bar fee.
3.  Register after February 7, 2015, and you will pay the registration fee of $70, and the snack bar fee of $20.
4.  Register after February 7, 2015, and you will be assigned to a team at the board's discretion.  You may not be eligible for the draft and/or to return to your 14/15 year old team from last year. 

Important Dates and Information
Tryouts:  Will be held on February 14th and 21st at the Orcutt Babe Ruth fields.  There will be two tryout sessions per date; one at 10:00 am and one at 12:00 pm.  All 13 and 14 year old players are required to attend one session to be eligible for the draft.  Failure to attend a tryout session will lead to you being assigned to a team at the Board's discretion.
