Update from the Babe Ruth League President;


With spring finally upon us, it is our hope that our players will be allowed to return to their community playing fields and play as much baseball and softball as they can for the remainder of the 2020 year.
Babe Ruth League’s highest priority remains the health, well-being and safety of our participants, families, volunteers, and fans. To help our local leagues navigate the restart and/or start of play in your community, we’ve  created some enhancement guidelines for your consideration. These enhancements will not replace local and state health official guidelines, but rather give additional insight to potential items and suggested best practices local leagues can look to add in light of COVID-19.
In our continuing effort to put our focus on local league play and local tournament play, the Board of Directors of Babe Ruth League, Inc. has asked that we forgo our traditional Regional and World Series formats for the 2020 season. Removing these events from the calendar in July and August will give local leagues and states more time to play locally once given permission to safely do so.
We know that many of you would still like to have additional tournament opportunities run by Babe Ruth League that resemble our Regionals and World Series events, if possible.  We’re currently exploring options for later summer and even fall, but for now our primary focus is on local league and state play when safely available.  As we evaluate each week and as more states begin to start play, we will report back with future plans for the calendar year.
Babe Ruth League has always been deeply committed to providing all of our participants with the very best educational sports experience possible in a safe and enjoyable environment.  We thank you for your patience, understanding, and support as we navigate these unprecedented times. 
Until we meet again on the diamond, we ask you to focus on the guidelines set by the federal government and your state and local governments to make sure we are all committed to doing our best for the safety and well-being of EVERYONE in our Babe Ruth Community.

As we continue our transition to SportsEngine for management of the Babe Ruth League safety program, including background screening and abuse prevention training, please refer to the instructions below for setting up the program within your organization.

Getting Started

  1. If you have not done so already, all league administrators need to create a SportsEngine account and complete their league administrator registration today. Once registered, administrators will have access to a list of local coaches that have completed background screenings and training.
  2. Next, make sure to publish the link to the coaches and volunteer safety registration on your league website, as soon as possible as the link is live as of  Monday, December 17. 

Helpful Resources
Please refer to the list of frequently asked questions that provide additional details about the new screening process.  Need help with your SportsEngine account?  View the account guide.

Next Steps
Babe Ruth League will be emailing the link to all coaches and volunteers in the Pacific Northwest, Pacific Southwest, Southeast and Southwest this week to have them begin the process. Coaches and volunteers in the remaining regions will receive the link on January 3.

We ask for for your help in reinforcing with your coaches and volunteers that they are required to complete this safety program prior to being cleared to participate in the Spring season.
