PortsmouthBRL: Welcome

---- Celebrating 50 years of Babe Ruth Baseball in our community, 1966-2016 ----  

Welcome to the Portsmouth, RI  Babe Ruth League (PBRL) Home Page


    UPDATED for upcoming 2018 season:

**Important -- Authorized metal bats** :

*Per newly revised Babe Ruth League Inc. rules, 2018 -- ALL NON-WOOD BATS **must** be marked either "BBCOR" .50 or have the new "USABat" stamp marking to be legal for play within the 13-15 y/o age Division*


          Thanks to all who helped make 2017 a great year for Portsmouth Babe Ruth, with over 110 players total registered for the combined Spring/Fall seasons! Terrific response with over 40 players involved in 13-15 Div & 16U Fall baseball!! 

Overall, we fielded five Portsmouth Spring teams, three Portsmouth Fall teams and contributed to all three Summer All-Star tournament teams in 2017.
