Welcome to Washington Babe Ruth [WBR]

We serve ball players between the ages of 13-18. [12 year-olds may play with the written permission of the President of the Cal Ripken Baseball league in which the 12-year old resides.  Cal Ripken Baseball is the Babe Ruth organization for players 12 years old and younger.]   WBR is part of the Pacific Northwest Regional Division of Babe Ruth Leagues, Inc.

Greetings and Thank You for visiting our website!  As the State Commissioner, I hope that we are able to provide a good start for your organization or team[s].   “About Us” directs you to our District and local league contacts.

On behalf of WBR, my assistants and I wish you all a great year and we are ready to help you.
