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.

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!

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

There are no tryouts or cuts, so every player who registers is guaranteed a spot to play in this season which runs from March to May. Our Prep Season is a developmental league designed to help younger players develop their skills on the full-sized diamond and prepare players for our 15U Season.

It includes two weeks of preseason clinic-style practices, a player draft, and an eight week season featuring one practice and two games per week for each team culminating in a fun City Championship Tournament. The league features minimum playing time rules to allow all players a chance to play in each game.

The Prep League is open to all 7th and 8th graders, as well as any high school student not on a high school baseball roster. Full refunds are issued if a player makes his/her high school team and is unable to play Prep, so there is no risk in registering. Registration is $475 and closes March 8.
