The program fields a 13-15-year-old team and a 16-18 year-old team and practices and home games are held at Ryan Playground (adjacent to the Schraffts Building). The summer league season begins at the end of June and playoffs are completed by mid-August.

The 13-15 year-old team — Any player born prior to May 1, 2005 and on or after May 1, 2002 will be eligible for Babe Ruth 13-15 League competition.

16-18 year-old team — Any player born prior to May 1, 2002 and on or after January 1, 1999 will be eligible for Senior Babe Ruth 16-18 League competition.

Charlestown Babe Ruth is also looking for adult volunteers (especially those with high school or college baseball experience) to help run practices, serve as coaches, or help provide transportation to away games. Adults can also register online (at no cost). If you have any questions, please E-Mail Kevin Kelly at bunkerhillbillie@aol.com.

 

PLAYOFF HOCKEY

  • NHL

TOWNIES: Matt Grzelcyk (BOS)

TOWNIE ROOTS: Jim Vesey (TOR – scout)

  • ECHL

Adirondack Thunder (41-24-7) vs. Worcester Railers (37-27-8)

NICE DEBUT

In addition to being among the rookie scoring leaders in the ECHL, Manchester wing Mike Doherty (20 goals, 24 assists) finished second on his team with 187 shots on net. Mike’s efforts resulted in his selection as the Monarchs 2018 Unsung Hero Award recipient. A “Townie” gym hockey alum (along with Jim Vesey, Matt Grzelcyk, Aaron Titcomb, Brendan Collier and so many talented others), Mike has certainly come a long way from the St. Mary’s Parish Hall arena.
