IFPAA LAUNCHES INAUGURAL SEASON WITH BABE RUTH LEAGUE IN 2013! During
the fall of 2012, the IFPAA established a committee to consider options for affiliation with a national youth baseball organization. The
committee, after weighing all of the factors and options around
affiliations with various national youth baseball organizations,
recommended at the November 15, 2012 board meeting that IFPAA establish
affiliation with the Babe Ruth League, and create the Western Region for
Babe Ruth/Cal Ripken Baseball. Everyone involved felt the Babe Ruth
League was the best possible fit for IFPAA and our community, and the
recommendation was approved unanimously. For additional information click the image below:
