About Us





Southern Washington Babe Ruth Leagues [SWBRL]




Who We Are: Southern Washington Babe Ruth Leagues [SWBRL] is a State Organization which represents Babe Ruth League, Inc., a New Jersey Corporation, in business since 1951. Since 1987, we have supported baseball for players 13-18 years old through local, independent, non-profit organizations serving as leagues.  Babe Ruth Leagues operate within local geographical boundaries reflecting parent[s] or guardian[s] residence.  We own no portion of and do not control internal affairs of local leagues except as they pertain to Babe Ruth League, Inc. rules.

A group of local leagues comprises a District.  In turn, a group of Districts comprises our State Organization.
