The Beginnings of Babe Ruth Baseball



 

 

 Welcome to the Apponaug Babe Ruth Baseball League, located in Beautiful and Historic Warwick, Rhode Island.

 

Apponaug Babe Ruth Baseball League (a.k.a. ABRBL) operates and plays Cal Ripken Baseball.

 Cal Ripken Baseball Division - Ages 4-12

 

Keeping baseball fun—especially in the early stages of youth baseball—is a primary concern of Babe Ruth League’s Cal Ripken Division, which is comprised of the following levels:

 

Tee-Ball: Ballplayers ages 4-6 learn hitting and fielding fundamentals in a supportive team environment. Young athletes hit the ball from a batting tee which is height-adjusted for a level swing, batting in order through the line-up for the entire game.  All players must be 4 by April 30, 2015 to be able to play baseball.

 

Rookie: Designed primarily for ballplayers ages 7-8, this division makes use of a pitching machine to allow for more hittable balls at the plate and more action in the field. All players must be 6 by April 30, 2015 before moving into our Rookie division.

 

Minor: Recommended for ballplayers ages 9-10. Players build and refine their fundamental skills while beginning to understand game strategy and teamwork. In most regions, participants first experience post-season tournament competition in this level. All players must be 8 by April 30, 2015 before moving into our Minor division.

 

Major/70: Featuring a 50’ pitching distance and 70’ base paths, this new division is offered as an option to current league format, and still includes a tournament trail from District competition through World Series.  All players must be 10 by April 30, 2015 before being considered for our Major division.

 Apponaug is a Cal Ripken Division of Babe Ruth Baseball for Boys & Girls ages 4 - 12.  Apponaug has been providing baseball for the youths of Warwick for over 40 years.    Our league is open to every youth who lives in Warwick and East Greenwich.  Come and experience Cal Ripken Baseball!

 

 

 

 

 

 


Apponaug's Major Division is 70-Foot Pony Baseball, played at Kenney Field on Jefferson Blvd.

Apponaug's Minor, Rookie and T-Ball Divisions are played in the Apponaug Baseball Complex behind City Hall.

___________________________________________________________

The Board of Director's are in place and meeting with each other to help move each season in a positive direction.  We have some new and some old faces on the board, but we are always looking for new members to help us.  Please look to volunteer your time on the Board as a member or on a subcommittee.  Please take the time to be an active participant in ABRBL.  Our next Board Meeting will be in January.  Please email us if you would like to attend or if you need more information about it.

  _________________________________________________

Here are some accomplishments we have had for our league the past few seasons:

  • We replaced the old Dugout roofs at Kenney Field and built new ones for our Major League Division.  This keeps the players safe throughout the year.
  • We replaced both the Minor and Rookie league fields with new loom and sod which will give the kids a much better playing performance for years to come.  Thanks to Mark Trosin of Lawnscapes and the Easton Family for their donations, time, and effort.
  • We have painted all of the Apponaug complex facilities.  This replaces the old green look with a new Blue look and feel.  We hope you like it.  Thank you to Mark Paley, painter extraordinaire.

____________________________________________________

Our goal is to generate excitement for our league and position ABRBL for long term success.  Baseball is our national pastime, and we would like to ensure that youth baseball in the City of Warwick remains a summer tradition.  In order to achieve this goal, we need to strengthen our volunteer base.  Parents are welcome to join us at our monthly Board meetings.  Please consider volunteering.  Together, we can find a volunteer area that fits your skill set and interests, and most importantly, one that works best for your busy schedule.  Thank you for your time, and thank you for supporting Apponaug Baseball.
