Program Descriptions:

13U Select Travel Team: This team will play a scheduled that incorporates a combination of Xtreme Babe Ruth, East Shore League or Greater Hudson Valley League.   The expectation is the 13U Select team is designed for the best 13 year old players independent of school grade.  

The coaches will be paid professionals, with years of experience coaching youth baseball, and instruction is expected to be intense. These teams will have 1 or 2 practices a week and up to 3 games per weekend, as well as some travel tournaments, depending on the interest and availability of the players. The season runs from early April through the end of July. On these teams, the skill level will be advanced, and the players should have a high level of interest in playing an intense schedule. Think of this program as the town path to preparing boys for high school baseball.

Those that do not make a Select team would still be invited to play on a spring Babe Ruth House team.

“House” Babe Ruth Teams: Wilton will field teams at the 13U and 15U levels, and organize as many teams as needed to accommodate all registered players. The Babe Ruth House season runs from early April to mid June. Play is against other local Babe Ruth House teams throughout Fairfield County.  Play is on the full sized field, and comes with paid professional coaches with years of experience, and a high level of instruction. The level of play will be less competitive than East Shore and is ideal for the more casual player who enjoys baseball, but does not expect to play in high school. We anticipate one practice and 2 games a week.  A 13 year old a player could be placed on either the 13U or 15U team, depending on his skill level, and the number of registrations.
