Kansas Babe Ruth Leagues, Inc. is committed to excellence not only on the baseball diamond but also in the community. By hosting a tournament, communities are afforded the opportunity to showcase their town and demonstrate the dedication and perseverance of their volunteers, their tournament staff and local league officials through their imagination, hospitality and willingness to host a District, State or Regional Tournament. Many memories and relationships are forged that last a lifetime for those hosts and participants in our tournaments.
Our emphasis in Kansas is on the regular season where leagues can tailor their program to fit the needs of its participants and provide a safe environment in which all have the opportunity to participate. After the regular season, leagues select their post-season tournament teams to participate in our tournament trail. Click here to access this year’s tournament trail.
One of our most exciting events is the Kansas Babe Ruth Classic where two teams are selected to participate in a double-header in August. All players are 15 year-olds and are selected during their District Tournaments based on their skill, attitude and sportsmanship. Managers are members of the Kansas Babe Ruth Board of Directors and are on a rotational basis. Two coaches for each Classic team are nominated by their respective District Commissioners.
