Xtreme Baseball Program
Connecticut has been the pioneer program for Xtreme Baseball. Starting with the 2013 season, leagues have been allowed to charter teams as Xtreme Teams. This allows Connecticut Babe Ruth Baseball Leagues to keep the best ballplayers in their programs and continue to compete at the highest levels of competition. We will post more information as it becomes available. Xtreme Baseball is a National Babe Ruth Program since 2014.
