Youth baseball ages 13 to 18 years old in Elk Grove, California.
The registration for Spring 2023 is now wait list only.
You can still register, but select the pay offline option. If a spot opens up, then we can collect later. Every year, players drop for various reasons, so feel free to sign up - we go first come, first serve when replacing players.
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, but we are full for Supplemental Players at this time. 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 24, 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.
WHAT IS NEXT AFTER TRYOUTS?
With tryouts now complete, the next thing to happen will be the draft on Feb 25. Players will be contacted over the next few days after that draft. Practices will start on March 1. The regular season will start April 1. Supplemental players would start playing on May 6th, once high school freshmen and JV schedules are complete, and the season would conclude Saturday, June 10. Playoffs would begin after that, and conclude Saturday, June 17.
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. 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.
