My my My my
13 Year Old Babe Ruth League Program
by posted 07/20/2017


Attention: All 12 & 13 Year-Olds!!!

Founded in 1951, just one year before Pioneer's creation, Babe Ruth Baseball League was created for ballplayers ages 13-15 who wished to continue their baseball playing experience beyond the age of 12.  This is truly where players get their baseball cleats muddy for the first time on a standard 90' diamond under Official Baseball Rules used by Major League Baseball. 

This past Spring, Pioneer introduced a Babe Ruth League Program, that introduced play-up 12 year old and 13 year old players to a 90' baseball program.  Pioneer is fully dedicated to ensuring continued growth of our players ensuring a seamless path from our league to our respective area high school baseball programs. A solid, fundamental fall season, with instruction on our newly renovated 90' conversion field at Clermont #4 will help facilitate your player's success on the field to prepare for the next step in their baseball journey, and is a quality way to prepare for more a more competitive baseball setting in the spring.

Additionally, to ease in the transition to 90' field, our sponsor from MBA will be conducting a skills clinic for our players with a focus on pitchers and catchers on either the 12th or 13th of August (exact date TBD) before our season begins.  This is not limited to players interested in 90' baseball, but is open to any and all of our players who want to learn and grow in two of the most fundamentally skilled baseball positions in the game. More information to come out on this, soon.

We from the Pioneer Board of Directors are dedicated to ensure your player's grow in the sport of baseball.  If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me (, or our 90ft Program Commissioner - George Polovchik (
