Youth baseball ages 13 to 18 years old in Elk Grove, California.
The registration for Spring 2023 is still open!
The registration action item below will allow you to complete contact information, sign up for participation, and submit payment for the Spring 2023 Season. Regular Spring Season fees are $240, Supplemental Players $190. Clothing items included in the fee will be gray pants, team shirt, team cap, & socks.
Eligible birthdates are 5/1/2006 to 4/30/2010. Those with birthdates from 5/1/2006 to 4/30/2007 (league 16 year-olds) will not be allowed to pitch. Birthdates from 5/1/2010 to 4/30/2011 could possibly be approved to play, but on a case-by-case basis and only with permission from the appropriate Cal Ripken league. Go to www.eghardball.com to sign up – please do so by Feb 21, 2023.
We will conduct a full 22 game season and to give high school players the opportunity to join us for the latter half of the season. Typically the “Supplementals” will get 11 games at the end of the season.
UPDATE ON TRYOUTS!! League age 13's and 14's (Birthdates 5/01/2008 to 4/30/2010) are to report to Bartholomew Sports Park Blue Diamond (NE corner of the park) for a 10:00 am tryout on Feb 4 or Feb 11. League age 15's and 16's (Birthdates 5/01/2006 to 4/30/2008) are to report to the same field for a 12:30 pm tryout. Players only need to attend one tryout. Rain makeup on Wednesday February 15 and Saturday February 18 as needed. Additional dates and times to be confirmed at a later date in case of rain. Drafting of teams should be complete by late February, practices will start around March 4 and continue through the month of March, and the regular season would start around Saturday April 1, 2023. Exact dates and times will be sent in a separate communication. Supplemental players would start playing in the early part of May, once high school freshmen and JV schedules are complete, and the season would conclude likely around Saturday, June 10. Playoffs would begin after that, and conclude around Saturday, June 17. Again, dates and times will be confirmed as they approach.
In keeping with safety protocols because of the pandemic, we will ask spectators to create some space in the stands and fully utilize portable chairs to help disperse the crowd. Sharing of equipment is best to avoid, so for those that need it, we can issue helmets or catcher’s gear to some players to hold onto for the entire season. However, we encourage each player to at least have their own bat and helmet. Bats must be BBCOR or USA branded. Max diameter is 2 5/8”.
Assuming Babe Ruth League all-star tournaments are back to normal, those selected for all-stars would start practice the Monday after our league championship game. Depending on how the teams perform, all-stars could be 2-3 weeks, up to 8-9 weeks, although a long run like that is exceedingly rare. Most teams fall in the 2-3 week timeframe, with a few possibly going for 4-5 weeks.
1962 EGBR All-Stars
The celebration included a parade through Elk Grove Park from the north-east entrance area to Brown Diamond. Teams, coaches and sponsors were recognized and the mayor and CSD leaders spoke about Elk Grove Babe Ruth and it's long history in Elk Grove. See link to Media Guide link to the right for more information.
Congratulations to coaches Larry and Brian Stone, and the Giants for winning the 2022 Spring championship!!

EGBR would like to extend our sincere condolences to the family of Zach Farwell. Zach passed away in an accident on Sept 9, 2022. He was a truly great leader and teammate for the EGBR Ironbirds and Beavers 2016-2018. He will be greatly missed. May he rest in peace.
