***Updated for 2019 Season

SPHS-Babe Ruth Baseball option for players in grades 6-7-8 and meeting eligibility criteria originally noted March 9, 2017.

This summer, Sun Prairie High School (SPHS) baseball will again coordinate tryouts, selection and participation of separate 13U (Grades 6 & 7) and 14U (Grade 8) Babe Ruth baseball teams. In an effort to find a better competitive environment, these teams will play a weekend tournament focused schedule with weeknight games against area competition.

The Babe Ruth teams will be playing exclusively on 60/90 (60-foot pitching, 90-foot bases) fields with home games played on SPHS fields. 14U players should expect to use high school rules for bats (BBCOR/ -3). 13U players should expect to use bats that are either BBCOR or meet the new USA bat standard (2 5/8” barrel and drop no larger than -5.)

Please note-the Babe Ruth teams are open to players meeting 2 criteria:

1.       Live in Sun Prairie Area School District or attend school in the Sun Prairie Area School District, AND

2.       Plan to attend SPHS for high school (starting in grade 9)

***Players not meeting the criteria or who do not get selected for the Babe Ruth teams are encouraged to play SPYBAS Junior baseball in Sun Prairie and may try out for the separate SPYBAS 13U and 14U tournament teams.

Players trying out for the Babe Ruth teams are expected to commit 100% to the Babe Ruth practice, tournament and weeknight game schedule. NO kids playing travel/club baseball will be allowed to play for the SP Babe Ruth teams. SPHS has tried to allow this in the past and it just doesn’t work.

BABE RUTH GRADE RESTRICTIONS, PER SPHS:

·         To be eligible for the 14U team, players must currently be in 8th grade and have been born on or after 5/1/2004.

·         To be eligible for the 13U team, players must currently be in grade 6 or 7 and have been born on or after 5/1/2005-current 8th graders who may fit this age window must try out for 14U.

Registration Process:  We ask that all players that intend to tryout for the Babe Ruth program register through SPYBAS for Juniors baseball. If the player is selected for a Babe Ruth team, SPYBAS will refund your registration fee. The fee for the Babe Ruth program is determined by and is to be paid directly to the Babe Ruth coaches. Any players not selected for the Babe Ruth program will then take part in the Juniors skill evaluations for placement on a Juniors team and is also welcome to tryout for the SPYBAS sponsored 13U or 14U tournament team
