Founded in 1955, Concord Babe Ruth Baseball was created for ballplayers ages 13-15 who wished to continue their baseball playing experience beyond the age of 12. In this division, teams will compete in local house league play and players are eligible to compete on one of 2 showcase teams.
New for 2013, Concord Babe Ruth will feature a 13-14U and 15-U showcase team that will compete at various tournaments in the Western New York area. Players from Dunkirk and Fredonia are eligible to play Concord Babe Ruth.
Many local Babe Ruth alumni are now competing at the NCAA level at SUNY Fredonia, SUNY Brockport, Tusculum College, St. Bonaventure, Mercyhurst, JCC, MCC, ECC, Rochester and Chowan University.
At this point, coaching applications are being accepted for the 13-14U teams as well as the 15-U team.
