The Babe Ruth level of baseball is for our 13 – 15 year old age group. The focus at this level is competitive baseball. At this level of play we continue to hone baseball skills but focus very much on the strategic and mental part of the complex game of Baseball. Babe Ruth players fine tune and execute baseball strategies which are much more team oriented and less individual player oriented. While the priority at this level is winning, a balance is maintained to constantly improve skills, learn the complexities of the game, and have fun. Players at this level should expect to work hard, have fun and really enjoy the game.
Teams usually play three games per week and have an approximate 20 game season over seven weeks. At the end of the season there is an in-town playoff to determine a Town Champion. A Season Champion is also recognized. Following regular season play, Merrimack will compete against other towns in the District and State playoffs. We typically field a separate team for each age group: 13, 14, 15.
