Welcome to 2018 Mountain View Babe Ruth Baseball
Our Babe Ruth program strives to teach the basic skills of baseball along with mental and physical development and a respect for the rules of the game with an emphasis on basic ideals of sportsmanship and fair play.

Fundamentally, we believe that every youngster with a desire to learn and play baseball should be offered the opportunity.  Babe Ruth provides programs for players ages 12 through 19, supporting the growth and competitive needs of our baseball community along with the convenience of being right here in our own backyard.

2018 All Stars
Unfortunately, MVBR had to make a very tough decision on our All-stars program, we have decided to enter 1 team this year into the All-star competition against our other District teams from (Palo Alto and BelMateo), we based our decision on 2 major factors, players *(availability and commitment)*, unfortunately we felt that neither was present therefore we decided to go with a single (13-15) All-star team.
 
The following players will represent MVBR in our (13-15) All-star District competition:
 
Jamie Braun
Nathan Bonofilio
Eric Burton
James Coogan

2018 13-15 Spring League – May to June
All players new to MVBR must attend one of the tryouts listed below.  Each player will be drafted onto one of the existing MVBR league teams on April 28.  From mid-May through mid-June each team will compete in at least 15 league games (2-3 per week at either the Shoreline Athletic Field or a field TBD), followed by a highly competitive end-of-season playoff tournament that will crown a new 2018 MVBR champion.  Immediately after, the All Star Tournament season begins in late June – early July.  Players are selected by merit to participate on each age group's team with the first tournament being the District 6 Championship where MVBR contends against teams from Bel-Mateo and Palo Alto.  MVBR has traditionally hosted the 13-Year-Olds’ District 6 Tournament at McKelvey Park, however, it will now be held at the Shoreline Athletic Field.  Bel-Mateo will welcome the 14's at the Belmont Sports Complex, and Palo Alto will host the 15's at Baylands Park, PA.  Afterward, the winners of each age group move on to the State Tournament followed by Regional competition and finally the Babe Ruth World Series that concludes in early to mid-August (all dates and venues to be determined).

Any player whose birthday is between May 1, 2002 and April 30, 2005 is eligible for MVBR 13-15's League competition.

16-19 Senior League – Mid-May to Mid-July
This 16-19 Senior Babe Ruth season is a fast and furious, highly competitive 6-7 weeks. Immediately after the conclusion of the high school season, the plan is to have one MVBR Senior team participate.  However, that number may increase depending upon the number of registrants. There will be 10-15 league games in late May and June against other Senior teams from nearby localities.  Depending on qualification, there will be a weekend State Tournament beginning July 7 (subject to change) and a Regional Tournament on July 14 (subject to change) with venues to be determined.

Any player whose birthday is between May 1, 1999 and April 30, 2002 is eligible for MVBR Senior 16-19's League competition.  If the player turns 19-years-old between May 1 - December 31, 2018, he/she is still eligible to play.
