WLBA Leagues:

Keeping baseball FUN especially in the early stages of youth baseball is a primary concern of Babe Ruth League's Cal Ripken Division, which is comprised of the following divisions:

Tee Ball: Ballplayers ages 4-5 learn hitting and fielding fundamentals in a supportive team environment. Young athletes hit the ball from a batting tee which is height-adjusted for a level swing, batting in order through the line-up for the entire game.

Sluggers: Ballplayers ages 5-6 where pitching is inroduced from approximately20' by a coach. Each player usualy receives 5 pitches when at bat.

Rookies: Designed primarily for ballplayers ages 7-8, this division makes use of a pitching machine to allow for more hittable balls at the plate and more action in the field.

Minor: Recommended for ballplayers ages 9-10. Players build and refine their fundamental skills while beginning to understand game strategy and teamwork. In most regions, participants first experience post-season tournament competition in this level.

Major/60: This division is recommended for ballplayers ages 11-12. Features a 46' pitching distance and 60' base paths.

Major/70: Featuring a 50' pitching distance and 70' base paths, this division is offered as an option to the major division format, and includes a tournament trail from District competition through the World Series.

Babe Ruth Baseball League: 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.
