West Linn Select Baseball is the most competitive level of baseball offered at each Cal Ripken and Babe Ruth age group from 10U through 14U.
It is designed to ensure the players who demonstrate skill sets needed for this level of baseball at each age group are selected through a tryout process operated by the WLBA select committee and the West Linn High School staff. Skill sets assessed are any individual baseball activity such as batting, throwing, catching, base running, and fielding as well as combination baseball skills such as reading and reacting to baseball situations, on-field attitude, and hustle.
Tryouts are in early fall and once teams are selected each team will have a fall, winter, and spring schedule to be determined by the coaching staff. All teams will be scheduled in 8-10 local and regional tournaments as well as intermittent weekday games to be scheduled by each coaching staff.
The age groups for this level of baseball are Cal Ripken 10U, 11U, 12U and Babe Ruth 13U, 14U as directed by Babe Ruth baseball age rules.
