Welcome to the home of PA Babe Ruth Softball!
Good luck to all of our leagues as they kick off the rec season. It's been a tough start with the weather, between snow and rain this far into April.
The Pennsylvania Babe Ruth State Softball Tournament will commence the weekend of June 22nd at Audubon Recreation Association. Stay tuned for more details as we get closer to the event.
Don't forget, the Middle Atlantic Region Softball Tournament will also be held in Pennsylvania this year. Team checking and opening ceremonies will begin on July 5th at Heuser Park in Upper Merion. Please visit the MAR Softball website for more details.
From the Commissioner
Thank you for visiting the official website for PA Babe Ruth Softball. We are part of a broader program of Babe Ruth entities here in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, including the Cal Ripken League and Babe Ruth Baseball. Falling under our national organization, Babe Ruth League, our purpose is to promote the game of softball among our youth. As a father of two, a son who played in the Cal Ripken division and now in Babe Ruth, as well as a daughter playing Babe Ruth Softball, I get to see first hand the impact we can make on our children in the community.
One of the more fulfilling experiences I've had is coaching. Watching those young players get better and better over time is a good feeling. Even more, getting to see those young kids continue to play as they got older is rewarding knowing that I may have had a small part of their growth and love of the game. It is to that end that I challenge you, the parent, to get involved. Become a coach. If you're nervous about inexperience, start out as an assistant until you become comfortable. If you are unable to coach for whatever reason, get involved in other ways, like helping prep the fields, work in the snack stand, join the fundraising committee, or even just spread the word of what we offer. The more kids we can impact, the better we are doing at achieving our goal. SHARE THE GAME - SHARE THE DREAM!
