Babe Ruth 2021 Registration Now Open

UpdatedTuesday January 19, 2021 byBrian Fiorello.

Hello Babe Ruth Baseball Families!

The Ithaca Babe Ruth League (IBRL) is opening registration for the 2021 Babe Ruth (14U and 16U) baseball season. The IBRL Board is deeply committed to providing local athletes with the very best baseball experience possible in a safe environment. Thus, at present, IBRL is awaiting guidance from the New York State and local health departments as well as the City of Ithaca regarding the resumption of outdoor athletics in accordance with the NYS COVID-19 phased re-opening plan. 

Ithaca (Tompkins County) is part of Southern Tier Region for COVID-19 reporting and monitoring. COVID protocols will be shared with families before practices and games begin.


  • Online registration is OPEN. Go to and log in or create an account. 
  • Please make sure your athlete is registered for the correct division: 14U Prep or 16U Babe Ruth. Players must be within the age range for each division - 13-14 years of age for 14U Prep and 15-16 years of age for 16U Babe Ruth – as of April 30, 2020.
  • 13U and 15U Travel Team athletes are encouraged to register as well, as they will receive a courtesy roster spot free of charge.
  • We will roster players based on birthdate (not their parent’s choice).

Babe Ruth League

  • The Babe Ruth summer season typically features a 10- to 12-game schedule, plus a week of playoffs.
  • Ithaca Babe Ruth typically collaborates with the Quad County Babe Ruth league (Lansing, Dryden, Trumansburg, etc.) for a joint season. This partnership allows the opportunity to create two divisions – 14U Prep (ages 13-14) and 16U Babe Ruth (ages 15-16).

We are also seeking coaches for our summer Babe Ruth teams. If interested in coaching, contact Brian Walder at
