Team Formation Policy
Springfield Babe Ruth knows that for many reasons players like to play with friends and coaches they have played with before and coaches like working with players they have coached before. For these reasons it is now possible for players to stay on teams they have played on the previous season. This has been a very successful policy in our senior league for many years and we have now extendeded it to the 13-15 age division. This policy also extends to teams coming out of Little League that would like to stay together as they transition to Springfield Babe Ruth. We are still preserving our younger leagues (Prep, International and Major Leagues), but it is now possible for teams to form up as Prep teams and stay together until they reach our Senior league. If you have questions about this new policy, please inquire about it when you register this year.
TEAM ASSIGNMENTS AND TRYOUTS
Guidelines for tryouts and team assignments:
Please address questions about tryouts to the Player Agent or Vice President.
PHYSICAL EXAMINATIONS: The SBRL Board of Directors strongly recommends physical examinations prior to tryouts. The parents or guardians of the participants are responsible to ensure that their sons or daughters are physically able to participate in the program. If a player has a special physical condition that may affect participation (e.g., diabetes, allergies, and unusual vision problems), please indicate that on the player information sheet when you register, and at tryouts.
2015 TOURNAMENT TEAMS
Hooes Road Park Improvements
Springfield Babe Ruth is proud to announce the latest efforts to improve the baseball field at Hooes Road Park. Springfield Babe Ruth has been working with the Fairfax County Recreation Department to improve the field, a project that dates back to 2003, before the current field existed.
Last year Springfield Babe Ruth installed roofs over the two dugouts that will provide welcome relief from the hot sun during late spring and summer games.
Springfield Babe Ruth provided $15,000 in addition to a grant received from the Fairfax County Recreation Department to build back-to-back batting cages on the third base side of the field. The batting cages will allow both teams to take batting practice simultaneously.

Springfield is committed to making the Hooes Road Park baseball field one of the finest in the Fairfax County Recreation Department. Coming soon will be a scoreboard beyond the centerfield fence.
Improving the baseball field requires help from Springfield Babe Ruth members. We will be looking for volunteers to help with several projects at the field that are listed here. Please consider volunteering for these projects. They will benefit your player as well as all players in the league.
