Babe Ruth Player Eligibility

Junior Level, Ages 13-15

UpdatedMonday February 17, 2020 byKCRBL.

The eligibility requirements for participation in Kingswood Babe Ruth-Junior (age 13-15) baseball is as follows:

  1. Player must reside within the Kingswood Babe Ruth Boundary as defined by New Hampshire Babe Ruth. Our league boundary includes: Wolfeboro, Ossipee, Tuftonboro, New Durham, Brookfield, and Effingham. This includes parts of towns with different names and/or zip codes (e.g., West Ossipee, Melvin Village).
  2. Player must not have a locked/suspended account in our registration system due to unpaid balance or any other reason (e.g., safety, conduct, legal).
    1. Registrations not prepaid by credit card must be paid prior to a team’s first game for player to be eligible to play.
    2. KCRBL will work with families to unlock accounts on a case-by-case basis.
  3. Player must meet age eligibility (aka League Age).
    1. Baseball League Age is the age of a given player on May 1 of the year of the baseball season.
      1. For example, for the 2018 season, Player A was born on May 3, 2005, and Player B was born on April 29, 2005. Player A (age 12) is eligible for baseball Majors, but Player B (age 13) is no longer eligible for Cal Ripken

    2. Requests to have a player stay at a previous level or move up to the next level despite not being in that level’s age range cannot be considered.
    3. Players age 12 and under, and age 16 and over (per League Age) are ineligible.
    4. Players available to participate in the Babe Ruth state tournament in July will take priority over those who cannot, when it comes to team formation.
