EJBSL League Structure:

Cal Ripken League (6-12 year olds)

  • Our divisions / leagues are age and skill based.
  • We have leagues for all skill levels.
  • Rookie League is coach-pitched league for 6, 7, and 8 year olds (as of April 30, 2019) who are making the transition from t-ball to player pitched baseball.   ($75)
  • A League (aka "Single A") is an introductory league for 9 and 10 year olds (as of April 30, 2019) and is the first level of player-pitched baseball.  The emphasis is on learning the game of baseball.  In the past, we have allowed some 8 year olds to try-up into A League.  During registration, if you wish, please select the box stating you'd like to have your child evaluated for A League.  ** We do not guarantee that any 8 year olds will be allowed to play-up in A League ** ($100)
  • AA League (aka "Double A") is a more advanced league for 9 and 10 year olds (as of April 30, 2019) who have been evaluated as having more advanced baseball skills.  ($135)
  • AAA League (aka (Triple A") is an intermediate league for 11 and 12 year olds (as of April 30, 2019) who are still developing their baseball skills and learning the nuances of the game.  ($135)
  • Majors League is an advanced league for 11 and 12 year olds (as of April 30, 2019).  Major league games are played on a larger - 70 foot base path diamond (50 foot pitching distance).  The 70 foot diamond is a good transition between the 60 foot diamond and the 90 foot diamond that all middle school and beyond play on.  This is the significant difference between Cal Ripken League and Little League; Little Leagues only play on 60 foot diamonds regardless of age or skill level.  ($135)
  • We play baseball on fields in all towns -- Brentwood, East Kingston, Exeter, Kensington, and Newfields.  

Babe Ruth League (13-18 year olds)

  • Babe Ruth 13-14 year-old League:  Exeter Babe Ruth (EBR) fields teams of 13-14 year-olds that play against teams from Newmarket, Stratham, Sanborn, Epping, Hampton, and Northwood. This league is a transition league for players as they transition from the 60/70 foot diamonds to the full-sized 90 foot diamond.
  • Babe Ruth 15-16 year-old League: EBR fields teams in the Exeter Babe Ruth League for kids ages 15-16.
  • Senior Babe Ruth League: EBR fields teams in the Seacoast Babe Ruth League for kids ages 16-18. The Seacoast League is made up of teams from Portsmouth, Hampton, Stratham, Barrington, Farmington and others. The season starts around the second week of June and runs through July with playoffs.

Cal Ripken League Evaluations:

  • All 9-12 year olds will be required to go through an evaluation process to determine each player's skill level against kids of a similar age.  
  • We may allow 8 year olds to try-up for our A league, however this is based on player and team quantities and we do not guarantee that any 8 year olds will be allowed to play-up.
  • We hire professional baseball coaches from Seacoast United to perform our evaluations.  This removes bias from the evaluation process.
  • Evaluations will be held the morning of Saturday, March 9th at Seacoast United's Epping indoor facility.  Each evaluation will be held by age group and will be approx. 1:15 hours long.  Evaluations are only held for 9-12 year olds and 8 year olds trying-up**
  • For those 9-10 year old players who evaluate into our AA League, EJBSL will invoice an additional $35 due to price differences between A League ($100) and AA League ($135).
  • Exeter Babe Ruth League (13 - 18 year olds) does not conduct evaluations.  Players are assigned to teams by our Babe Ruth Director and Board Members.
  • Our registration fee includes a uniform jersey and hat.
  • Each EJBSL team is supplied with team equipment including bats, helmets, and catching equipment.   
  • Players are responsible for providing a baseball glove, gray baseball pant(s), cleats (not mandatory), helmets (if desired), USABat approved baseball bat (if desired)
  • Only USABat approved bats are allowed in our league.

Used Equipment Drive

  • We collect used equipment during our evaluations.  This has been extremely successful in recent years.
  • Please bring all gently used equipment including:  baseball pants, cleats, socks, gloves, batting helmets, and USA Bat approved baseball bats.   Leave them in the bins provided.
  • Equipment will be distributed at our league photo night on or around Wednesday, April 3rd (date to be confirmed).
