Welcome to Norwell Babe Ruth League!

Norwell Babe Ruth League is proud to be part of Babe Ruth League, Inc., a non-profit educational organization dedicated to developing better citizens by providing properly supervised baseball competition for players 4 through 15 years of age.  Babe Ruth Baseball was established nationally in 1951 and features 13-15 year-olds playing on a regulation baseball diamond.  Selection of this age grouping on the regulation-size field was made originally after after studies among professional youth authorities indicated favor for the basic concept.  Younger players rapidly adjust to the larger diamond with the assurance that no further adjustment in throwing, pitching, etc., will ever be needed progressing to older-age teams.  Babe Ruth League, through its national mission statement, is committed to "skills, mental and physical development, a respect for the rules of the game, and basic ideals of sportsmanship and fair play."
Our goal in establishing a Babe Ruth League program in Norwell is to provide a fun, competitive and instructional baseball experience for players age 13-15 so those players may continue to have the ability to participate in a recreational baseball program until they reach high school.
