BETHESDA AREA BASEBALL LEAGUE (BABL)
BABL is a select program, with a commitment to baseball that’s greater than rec league but less than travel ball. Multi-sport athletes are encouraged! Available to ballplayers in 3rd through 8th grades. There’s a weekly clinic, practice, and a single game (2 or 3 day commitment). The number of days is dependent upon grade (3rd-4th graders <9U/10U> meet 2x/week, while 5th-8th graders <11U/14U> meet 3x/week). Click to visit our BABL page for more information and FAQs.

BABL A*: 3rd & 4th grade (10u)

BABL AA: 5th & 6th grade (12u)

BABL AAA: 7th & 8th grade (14u)

*Exceptional 8U athletes would be “playing up”

TRAVEL BASEBALL
Travel is an elite program, with a commitment to baseball as your son’s favorite or sole sport. Available to players aged 8 through 14 years old (exceptional 8U athletes would be “playing up”). There are two practices and a doubleheader each week (3 day commitment). Click to visit our Travel page for more information and FAQs.
