Welcome to Melrose Babe RuthUpdated Friday February 12, 2016 by MBR.
The Melrose Babe Ruth League Inc. is a non-profit, educational organization dedicated to providing supervised baseball competition for 13 through 18 year old players.
For the 13 year old players, the League runs a preparatory league to introduce the players to the big diamond. Practices begin early in April and run throughout the season. There is a 14 game season (approximately) followed by the playoffs.
The 14 year olds, 15 year olds, and (as of 2016) 16 year olds play together in the "Major" league, and play approximately 16 regular season games, with playoffs. The final playoff game is played middle to late June. Registration for Babe Ruth begins in October, with a cut-off date in mid-February.
From mid-June through early August, the League sponsors a travel team at the 13, 14, 15 + 16 year-old levels. The teams compete in the prestigious Lou Tompkins baseball league.
