Most people when they hear the term “March Madness” immediately think of basketball, the NCAA, the Big Dance, or the Final Four.
However, it is during the month of March that a lot of people get madness for baseball and softball. It is when we are able to let go of our Winter blues. You think we could be satisfied with so many baseball and softball games in a span of eight months. However, it never seems like enough.
Before you know it, Spring will be officially here! A new season that blooms plants, a brighter attitude…and love…the love of baseball and softball. It is arguably the best time of the year.
Dads and moms will be posting team schedules on the refrigerator. Some girls and boys may be a bit nervous to be starting a new sport; while others are veterans of the game, eager for another season on the field.
The madness in March leads to April when thousands of Babe Ruth leagues across the country hold their Official Opening Day. Many festivities are planned – team and individual pictures – exhibition games for the young and old alike – great food – raffles, auctions and much, much more!
At Babe Ruth League, Inc., it is our HOPE and mission to help our participants strengthen their games, compensate for their weaknesses and build confidence to play the games of baseball and softball – and the game of life – with their eye on the ball and their body in good physical condition.
HOPE happens when opportunity and guidance are present. Keeping the game fun while teaching the basic fundamentals should always been a primary concern.
Babe Ruth League, Inc. is mad about our players. In adopting rules, in establishing standards and in all planning, our main consideration is what is best for our kids.
Who reaps the most rewards of our madness when it is all said and done? THE KIDS, who will draw on their youth baseball and softball experience as they continue to develop a sense of self and set a solid foundation for an enjoyable, productive and successful adulthood.
