Sports Notebook: Babe Ruth program strong

Must Read

As Babe Ruth baseball leagues continue to dwindle in size, and in some case totally disappear and fold across the U.S., the Arlington Babe Ruth and older-age (13 and above) Arlington Senior Babe Ruth programs continue to thrive and excel.

The 2022 summer season recently concluded for Arlington’s Babe Ruth all-star teams at different age levels with much success, as has been the case for many years now.

At the lower age levels, multiple Arlington Storm teams won district-tournament titles, then two won state crowns, as well, to advance to region competitions, where each finished 2-2.

The Arlington Senior Babe Ruth 13 and 14 all-star squads each won district tournaments, then finished 2-2 at states. Both were eliminated with one-run losses.

The Arlington programs have figured out an effective way to successfully co-exist by working with the now much more popular summer and sometimes year-round travel baseball. Meanwhile, other Babe Ruth Leagues either have not made the same attempts, choosing to continue going at things alone, and are disappearing, as a result.

That’s sad and too bad.

Good for Arlington for continue to find a way.
