Construction Update

The demolition on the Family Center will continue through the end of winter break. Construction will also continue on Washington through winter break. Cement has been poured to start recreating the sidewalk on Washington, so hopefully when we return from break the sidewalk will be back in place, which will make drop off and pick up safer. Below are some pictures of the progress on Washington.

Thank You!!

Thank you so much to all of the parents who donated gift cards for our staff luncheon this coming week. We appreciate your generosity!

Palo Alto Babe Ruth Baseball Prep Season Registration Open!

Palo Alto Babe Ruth Baseball invites you to register for our upcoming 2019 Prep Season. There are no tryouts or cuts, so every player who registers is guaranteed a spot to play in this season which runs from March to May. Our Prep Season is a developmental league designed to help younger players develop their skills on the full-sized diamond and prepare players for our 15U Season. It includes two weeks of preseason clinic-style practices, a player draft, and an eight week season featuring one practice and two games per week for each team culminating in a fun City Championship Tournament. The league features minimum playing time rules to allow all players a chance to play in each game.

The Prep League is open to all 7th and 8th graders, as well as any high school student not on a high school baseball roster. Full refunds are issued if a player makes his/her high school team and is unable to play Prep, so there is no risk in registering. Registration closes Feb 15, but $400 early-bird pricing ends Jan 15!

For more information, visit our website at or contact Chris Lillios at
