Summer Baseball Program


Willamette Valley Babe Ruth is pleased to announce the formation of the 2015 Summer Baseball Program.

Summer Cal Ripken and Babe Ruth Program provide players, who played baseball during the spring season, with an opportunity to play baseball during the summer. Players will be allowed to participate at a higher level of baseball during the summer than the division they participated in during the regular season. Players may also choose to participate at their current skill level.

In the event that an area does not have a complete roster, players will be allowed to participate on a summer team from a different area.

“There may be people that have more talent than you, but there’s no excuse for anyone to work harder than you do.”– Derek Jeter
My motto was always to keep swinging. Whether I was in a slump or feeling badly or having trouble off the field, the only thing to do was keep swinging.
Hank Aaron
You gotta be a man to play baseball for a living, but you gotta have a lot of little boy in you, too.
Roy Campanella
The pitcher has to find out if the hitter is timid. And if the hitter is timid, he has to remind the hitter he’s timid.
Don Drysdale
I’ve come to the conclusion that the two most important things in life are good friends and a good bullpen.
Bob Lemon
Just take the ball and throw it where you want to. Throw strikes. Home plate don’t move.

Baseball was, is and always will be to me the best game in the world. – Babe Ruth
