Congratulations PAPOA, the 2021 Prep League Champions who came from behind 0-1 in the series against a tenacious Ada’s Cafe squad to capture the if-needed final game 4-3 Friday with the tying run perched at 3rd base. What a thrilling tournament and a raucous crowd that lit up the atmosphere at Baylands. Big thanks to everyone who made this season a reality, especially our dedicated and enthusiastic managers Shawn Owen and Mike Amoroso.

15U League Registration Closed

Posted by Palo Alto Babe Ruth Baseball at Mar 14, 2021 1:39PM PDT

Click here to register and learn more about our 2021 15U League.

This season runs from early June through mid July. This is a more competitive league than Prep League, but many of the players who participate in the Prep League will have the opportunity to play on a 15U team.

Our 15U tryouts will be held on Sat, May 1 from 5-7pm and Sat, May 15 from 7-9pm, both at Baylands Athletic Center in Palo Alto. Players in our Prep League do not need to attend the 15U tryout since the Prep League serves as their tryout.

Following the tryout, a draft will be held on May 18 where selected players will get drafted onto a 15U Team for the duration of their Babe Ruth careers. If your child doesn’t get drafted onto a 15U Team, you’ll receive a 100% refund, which means there’s really zero downside to registering. Our 15U Season is fairly compact, allowing players to enjoy Babe Ruth with minimal travel ball conflicts and fully participate after their high school seasons have finished.

At the end of our 15U Season, the top four teams earn the opportunity to compete in our coveted City Championship Tournament. Registration is $475 and closes May 16.

Join the fun: We’re a volunteer, community-based league, so we welcome all families to apply for Manager/Coaching spots or Board Member roles. Just let us know during registration!
