2012 Moorhead Babe Ruth Travel Team
13, 14 and 15 year old Program
Information & Signup Sheet
The Moorhead Babe Ruth Baseball Assoc. has developed a travel baseball team program for players’ age 13-15 years old with the
purpose of the following goals:
Provide a worthwhile opportunity for those players who would like to experience a higher level of competitive baseball in
league play and tournament play. This team will play together in league play in addition to weekend tournaments.
Provide a consistent, quality and structured organization with the age appropriate skill sets.
Provide a non biased opportunity to advance a players individual and team growth skills.
The number of players per team will be governed by the Moorhead Babe Ruth Baseball Assoc. and by the National Babe Ruth
rules. Teams will be structured as such and dictated by the National Babe Ruth age appropriate chart. (Exceptions to the age
group rule can be made by the Mhd Baseball Board, ie… you may play up with your grade if you are younger then the age charts).
13 year olds May 1998 to April 1999
14 year olds - May 1997 to April 1998
15 year olds - May 1996 to April 1997
Rosters will be 12 to 15 players and will be selected following a structured skills day(s). If enough players participate in this
structured skills day(s), an attempt to add an additional team at such age level will be made. All Players must attend the structured
skills day(s). Player selection will be determined by the travel team coach and designated member(s) of the board of directors with
no conflict of interest (relative to skills day(s)).
Each age appropriate travel teams will play together in league and will not have separate league and travel practice schedules.
Each age appropriate team will attend 3 to 4 week end tournaments per year along with divisional/state tournaments. Each team
may be scheduled to play additional local travel team scrimmages during the week/weekends as long as it does not interfere with
Players will be required to attend league games, practices and travel team tournaments. Unexcused absences from league games
and practices may result in a player rooting for his/her team from the bench before becoming eligible to participate in the current
or following travel game or tournament.
All interest individuals wishing to coach a travel baseball team must apply at the office for possible selections. Coaches will be
required to sign a coaching contract with Moorhead Babe Ruth and enforce the rules set forth by Moorhead Babe Ruth. Coaches
must pre-plan and conduct practices that satisfy age specific development. Failure to follow the coaching contract will result in
disciplinary actions by the board.
The board will be required to assess coaches practice schedules by making unscheduled visits to practices and games. In addition,
the board will be required to address any written complaints at the next scheduled board meeting.
It is the Moorhead Babe Ruth Baseball boards’ intent to encourage the growth of baseball in our organization and assist all players
with the fundamentals of baseball. During league games the coaches will be required to play all players equally. During weekend
Travel Tournaments the coach will dictate playing time.
