Why Choose Mt. Rainier Baseball Association?

We are a unique baseball league. Most leagues teach winning first; be the best. We are different. Our efforts are concentrated on making sure the kids are having fun, learning the game properly, teaching good sportsmanship, and doing their best. Winning is towards the bottom of the list. This is directly from the Babe Ruth League Code:

* Develop a strong, clean, healthy body, mind and soul.

* Develop a strong urge for sportsman-like conduct.

* Develop understanding of and respect for the RULES.

* Develop courage in defeat, tolerance and modesty in victory.

* Develop control over emotions and speech.

* Develop spirit of cooperation and team play.

* Develop into real, true CITIZENS.

These are incredible life lessons that the players are learning. Which we believe are MUCH more important than just winning.
