BABE RUTH LEAGUE TEST PILOT PROGRAM
As directed by the Babe Ruth League Board of Directors, permission is hereby granted to each Babe Ruth 13-15 league to conduct a test pilot program to allow league age 16-year-old players to participate in their local league during the 2017 season.
These players will NOT be eligible for 2017 tournament competition.
The purpose of the test pilot program is to see if this option will:
- Create a more enjoyable local league experience due to an increase in eligible players.
- Enhance the 15-year-old and 16-year-old participant’s experience due to size, ability, and skills being comparable.
- Increase the local league’s overall participation numbers.
If your league wishes to be part of the test pilot program for 2017, please notify National Commissioner, Robert Faherty, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As it is always our intent to better understand and implement rule and policy changes, upon completion of the 2017 local league season, we will ask you to provide your input on the effect of the test pilot program.
