VALLEY CITY, N.D. ( – Summer baseball is just around the corner. While the big leaguers argue about money, local baseball is about set to get started. And it begins with registration.

The Valley City Baseball Association has announced that registration for Babe Ruth and Senior Babe Ruth will be held Wednesday May 20th from 5pm to 6:30pm. Registration begins with 13 year olds at 5pm. Below is the  registration times by age.

Registration Times by Age.  If you have a conflict work with your players coach to arrange for an alternative time:

13 – 5:00p

14 – 5:15p

15 – 5:30p

16 – 5:45p

17 – 6:00p

18 – 6:15p

All players under 18 will need a parent/guardian to complete the forms. If you previously filled out the “Legion” registration and paid the player fee, a new Babe Ruth form will be needed for the VCBA records as well as the COVID release form. If you already registered and filled out the Babe Ruth form and paid the player fee, only the COVID release will need to be filled out. Also, remember to bring your own pen, the VCBA will not be providing any.
