This level is our entry level of softball. Coaches pitch to their own players from 35 feet. It focuses on fundamentals of the game and introducing players to the game of softball in a fun, structured environment. Players use an 11” ball which is easier for the younger players to handle. Our league participates in the North Central Mass Softball League.
Babe Ruth Softball requires batting helmets with face guards at all levels of play. Players are encouraged to purchase their own helmets for safety and sanitation purposes. Home games will be held at Spaulding and the Hawthorn Brooke Fields in Townsend. Teams will play away games primarily in Ayer, Fitchburg, Lunenburg, Pepperell, Shirley and occasionally in Ashburnham, Gardner, Hubbardston, Narragansett, Westminster and Winchendon.
