This level is geared towards 10-12-year old’s, and some 9-year old’s with higher ability levels that are ready for the more competitive nature of the major league. This is the first level at which players can steal and advance on dropped 3rd strikes. This is an exciting fast paced game. Players use a full size 12” ball. 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. All players must attend tryouts to be properly placed on a team. 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.
