Washington Babe Ruth [WBR]

Dan Riley. State Commissioner
Ridgefield, WA
Cell:  503-449-6004


Greetings to old and new friends of Babe Ruth League.  2021 was a year of great loss in Babe Ruth Baseball when Randy Boruff, long-time Commissioner for Northern Washington Babe Ruth Leagues passed away.  In addition to state and Region efforts, he was a significant national contributor.

Beginning in 2022, to assist organizing Babe Ruth activities within the Northern Washington Babe Ruth area, the Northwest Regional Commissioner, Brent Stenman, began a new, state-wide effort to promote the program and I accepted the State Commissioner position for both Southern and Northern Washington.

Washington Babe Ruth [WBR] was split in 1987 and continues to represent two divisions; North and South; to preserve post-season opportunities for the prior Northern and Southern Washington organizations.  Our focus is team recruitment, league chartering, identifying Districts and conducting state tournaments.

Web Site changes:  The Northern Washington and Southern Washington websites are combined into this new site.

Who We Are:  WBR represents Babe Ruth League, Inc., a New Jersey Corporation, in business since 1951. For decades, we have supported baseball for players 13-18 years old through local, independent, non-profit organizations serving as leagues.  Babe Ruth Leagues operate within local geographical boundaries reflecting parent[s] or guardian[s] residence.  WBR owns no portion of and do not control internal affairs of local leagues except as they pertain to Babe Ruth League, Inc. rules.  A group of local leagues comprises a District.  In turn, a group of Districts comprises our State Organization.
