14U Select Travel Team: This team will play a scheduled that incorporates a combination of Xtreme Babe Ruthm, East Shore League or Greater Hudson Valley League. The expectation is the 14U Select team is designed for the best 13 and 14 year old players independent of school grade.
The coaches will be paid professionals, with years of experience coaching youth baseball, and instruction is expected to be intense. These teams will have 1 or 2 practices a week and up to 3 games per weekend, as well as some travel tournaments, depending on the interest and availability of the players. The season runs from early April through the end of July. On these teams, the skill level will be advanced, and the players should have a high level of interest in playing an intense schedule. Think of this program as the town path to preparing boys for high school baseball.
Those that do not make a Select team would still be invited to play on a spring Babe Ruth House team.
“House” Babe Ruth Teams: Wilton will field teams at the 13U and 15U levels, and organize as many teams as needed to accommodate all registered players. The Babe Ruth House season runs from early April to mid June. Play is against other local Babe Ruth House teams throughout Fairfield County. Play is on the full sized field, and comes with paid professional coaches with years of experience, and a high level of instruction. The level of play will be less competitive than East Shore and is ideal for the more casual player who enjoys baseball, but does not expect to play in high school. We anticipate one practice and 2 games a week. A 13 year old a player could be placed on either the 13U or 15U team, depending on his skill level, and the number of registrations. There may be a summer 15U Babe Ruth Xtreme team that will play from mid June to the end of July, depending on the level of interest.
13U Xtreme Babe Ruth: A summer travel team will be formed at the end of the spring House Babe Ruth season for 13 year old players looking to continue their season through July. The summer Xtreme schedule will be again stronger competition than the spring and rosters will be formed through a try-out at the end of the Spring Season
15U Prep Legion baseball: Legion is the next age level up that promotes the most competitive environment. 15U Prep legion is broadly designed with the high school freshman team players in mind. Some 8th graders (13 and 14 year olds) may play up to 15U prep Legion. As Legion is a summer only league, these 8th graders would register for 15U Babe Ruth House or a join a different AAU team to play spring baseball.
17U Junior Legion and 19U Senior Legion teams: The 17U Junior Legion team targets JV players, while the 19U Senior Legion team targets varsity players and returning college players. The coaching on all levels of Legion is professional, knowledgeable and intense, with the objective of developing high school players at all levels.
