Babe Ruth Division Prep Ages 13-15
At age 13 players move from the Cal Ripken division to the Babe Ruth division and play on regulation size fields. (Babe Ruth Division games are played primarily on local high school fields.) Formation of the Prep League was approved by the International Board of Babe Ruth in 1976 as the result of studies showing that young players lose interest in baseball due to lack of playing time. With the Babe Ruth Baseball Prep League, the 13-year-old player now has that chance to play, avoiding the possibility of his losing interest in playing baseball. In addition, it has been found that players have expressed fear of competing with 14 and 15-year-old players who have already experienced one to two years playing on the standard 90-foot diamond.
