2022 Amity Babe Ruth
AMITY BABE RUTH Announces Registration for 2022 SPRING BASEBALL SEASON
Amity Babe Ruth (the only chartered Baseball program serving the Bethany, Orange & Woodbridge communities) is pleased to announce its plans for the 2022 Spring Season.
Amity Babe Ruth will include the following components :
- Spring Recreational Teams
- Guidance for development of players
- Summer All Star play (TBD)
- Fall Ball (TBD)
This program will be for Players who will be baseball age 13 – 15
Registration for the Spring Recreational Season is currently LIVE - simply click on the LINK below to access the Amity BR Spring Registration form.
There will be a meeting with Babe Ruth State Officials and District Commissioners at the end of February, when schedules will be discussed. We anticipate the 13 Prep Spring season will begin in early April and run thru the end of June (similar to last year). Not certain at this time if there will be a 13 Prep All Star Tournament - details will follow …
For the 14’s & 15’s, those Players who are fortunate to make the Amity HS Team will not be eligible to participate in the Spring until they are released, towards the end of May (however, note that all Players who play on their respective Middle School Teams will be eligible to still register / participate in our Amity BR Spring program as we intend to shy away from the dates the Middle School Teams play).
Predicated solely on our numbers, the balance of the 14’s & 15’s will then begin play in April in our District and wrap up their Spring schedule the end of May, when the Summer Season will begin, at which time we will form new Teams including those Players who were on the Amity HS Teams during the Spring.
Spring Season: Summer Season (TBD):
13 Prep: April – June 2022 (Cost $375) Program / Cost TBD
14 & 15: April – May 2022 (Cost $350) June – early August 2022 (Cost TBD)
On – line Registration will end on Monday, March 14th. The Spring Season will start in early April.
Note this Fee is just for the Spring Recreation Season only and does NOT include any applicable Fees for All Stars (Summer Season) or Fall Baseball – these Fees will be in addition to the Fees noted above should you wish to participate in same. Also note that the Fees have been adjusted up, as we are 1) required to pay the Town of Orange for maintenance of the fields at the Old Tavern Road complex predicated on our use and 2) for COVID-19 supplies.
Payment is due immediately upon Registration via a CC. Should refunds be necessary, these will be sent out directly from the League via the CC you used as well (including those who might register late but there are no available roster slots on the Team). However, note that there will be NO refunds approved once your child has been drafted on a Team and uniforms ordered.
You MUST register in Amity Babe Ruth to be eligible for Summer All Star play.
PARENT / COACHING HELP
Amity BR is looking for Parents to step up and volunteer to help us make this a successful Spring Season for our kids – we are looking for Volunteers to help become Coaches on both of our 13 Prep & 14/15 Teams as well as for Team Liaisons. Team Liaisons would be responsible for communicating with their Teams pertaining to practice & game reminders, game cancellations, etc. by using TeamSnap as well as paying the umpires at each game. This is a very important role to help take the burden off the Coaches.
PLEASE NOTE : We will also need Coaches to help run our Spring Baseball program this year by coaching our players in both the 13 Prep and 15U Divisions. If you have coached in either Beth – Wood Baseball or Orange LL previously, we would certainly appreciate your volunteering as our continued success counts on your involvement as well !! Please so state on the Registration form on-line when you register your child(ren) -
We have reached out to the Coaches from 2021 (Adam Leszczak, Jake Bronson, Reed Wegman and Andrew Tudino) to obtain their commitments and schedules for this coming season – we are hopeful they can once again help with our program when they return from College early to mid-May and will keep you informed when we hear back
FYI, the most current information pertaining to baseball bats that are acceptable for use while playing Babe Ruth (ages 13 – 15) can be founding by clicking on the link below :
Babe Ruth League Inc. adopted a new School Boundary Rule that now allows those children who attend classes during the traditional academic year at School(s) that fall within the boundaries of Amity Babe Ruth (Woodbridge, Bethany and Orange) to register and participate with us as well. Substantiating documentation will need to be provided when so requested to confirm this.
Also note that Amity Babe Ruth also offers scholarships to those who financially cannot afford to register their children due to economic reasons. Amity BR has NEVER EVER turned away any child who wants to learn and play this great game of baseball – for additional information and to learn more about this, please contact League President Dwight Rowland directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
