Stuart, FL– August 2019 - In 1951, ten men, who believed that the future of their community depended upon the proper development of the young people, met at the historic Yardville Hotel in Hamilton Township, New Jersey, for the purpose of developing a baseball program for young men between 13 and 15 years of age. Out of that meeting came Babe Ruth League, Inc., a non-profit, educational organization, named after one of the greatest baseball players of all-time – George Herman “Babe” Ruth.
In 1982, Babe Ruth Baseball added yet another division to its program, the Bambino division for players ages 4-12. July 6, 1999, was the beginning of a new era for Babe Ruth League, Inc. The Bambino Division was renamed “Cal Ripken Baseball, a Division of Babe Ruth League, Inc.” Cal Ripken, Jr.’s visions and philosophies, molded by his father, Cal Ripken, Sr., directly parallel those of Babe Ruth League, Inc.
Babe Ruth League, Inc. has increased steadily from its first 10-team league in Hamilton Township, New Jersey, to its present combined size of well over one million players on some 60,000+ teams in more than 11,000 leagues and over 1.9 million volunteers. Babe Ruth League, Inc. has also grown from its inaugural 13-15 World Series in 1952, to seven baseball and five softball World Series.
