Babe Ruth Indoor Clinics Begin Monday, March 20!

The Babe Ruth preseason will begin with a series of indoor clinics at TJO Sports, 5 Carver Circle, Canton MA. These clinics will be run by the professional coaching staff at TJO, with Needham Babe Ruth managers and coaches assisting.

 

The purpose of these clinics is twofold:

 

1. For all Babe Ruth players, these clinics will provide an opportunity to sharpen skills in preparation for this spring under the guidance of top-notch professional coaching.

 

2. For players new to Babe Ruth, these clinics will double as tryouts. Tryouts are only to inform team placement decisions so that we may create balanced teams. Every player will make a Babe Ruth team--there are no cuts.

 

The clinics will be held on the following dates at the TJO Sports facility:

  • Monday, March 20 7:30-9:00
  • Monday, March 27 7:30-9:00
  • Monday, April 3 7:30-9:00

The clinics are free and open to all registered Babe Ruth players.

 

Players returning to Babe Ruth will remain on the same team as last spring. New players will be assigned to a team before the final clinic on April 3.

 

Outdoor practices will begin as soon as the fields are playable--early April. Games will begin after school vacation in April. The regular season will run through the end of May. Playoffs will be the first two weeks of June.
