Program Descriptions:

“House” Babe Ruth Teams: 

Wilton will field teams at the 13U and 15U levels, and organize as many teams as needed to accommodate all registered players. The Babe Ruth House season runs from early April to mid June. Play is against other local Babe Ruth House teams throughout Fairfield County.  Play is on the full sized field, and comes with paid professional coaches with years of experience, and a high level of instruction. The level of play will be less competitive than Travel and is ideal for the more casual player who enjoys baseball, but does not expect to play in high school. We anticipate one practice and 2 games a week.  A 13 year old a player could be placed on either the 13U or 15U team, depending on his skill level, and the number of registrations.

No Tryouts are required for the Babe Ruth program

Spring 14U Travel

The spring program teams are for middle school players with a skill level and the players should have a high level of interest in playing an intense schedule. This program is designed as the town path to preparing boys for high school baseball.  Team activities will be coordinated by All-America Baseball Training and Development owner Vin Carlucci and coached by the Summer Team coach Matt Terrillion. The program will be run from mid-February to the end of May and be heavily focused on developing player skills and maturing knowledge of the game itself. The program is designed to prepare for, and seamlessly transition into, travel summer ball at the start of June.

The program includes 6 indoor team winter workouts in February and March, 2-3 practices a week and a 10-14 game schedule in Greater New Haven Baseball League in April and May and 1 weekend three game minimum tournament in CT/NY.  Program cost is $1,000.
