Sandston Babe Ruth Baseball: Divisions

Juniors: 13-15 Division

Founded in 1951, Babe Ruth Baseball League was created for ballplayers ages 13-15 who wished to continue their baseball playing experience beyond the age of 12. In this division, teams are eligible to enter tournament competition and move along the tournament trail, culminating in a World Series.

Seniors: 16-18 Division

Babe Ruth 16-18 Baseball was born in 1966 and has increased steadily since its inception. The 16-18 division is designated to provide organized regulation baseball competition for 16, 17 and 18 year-old players as a developmental plateau where they can continue to learn and practice those principles which help carry them through to a satisfactory and productive adulthood. 

The 16-18 division was organized because Babe Ruth League, Inc. was aware its job was far from completed. No organization was making available similar opportunities for young players once they had surpassed the Babe Ruth 13-15 baseball age. Just as the 13-15 division filled a gap, the 16-18 division was designated to address a similar void. 

The 16-18 year old division, which is played under regulation baseball rules, can be found the opportunity to practice the ideals of sportsmanship, fair play, high morality and democratic spirit which the participant has learned at the Babe Ruth 13-15 level.
