Fall ball to keep the hits coming

Staff reports

Baseball season is just around the corner – at least for existing and incoming South Tahoe Babe Ruth players.

Sign-ups for the two-month Fall Ball League are Tuesday and Thursday from 5-8 p.m. during Sierra Tahoe Loggers’ tryouts at Todd Fields.

Players 13 to 15 are eligible as well as 12-year-olds who just completed their Little League eligibility. The cost is $35 and includes a league shirt and hat.

Little Leaguers making the step up to Babe Ruth are encouraged to join so they can make a smooth adjustment to the larger playing field.

The season begins Aug. 29 and will run through Halloween. Games will be played from 6 to 8 p.m on Sundays.
