The Middle School program remains open to all players currently attending Middle School who are age-eligible for Babe Ruth Baseball (i.e., who were born prior to September 1, 2007), however, teams are not represented or organized by their middle schools. Instead, all interested baseball players who currently attend a Stamford Middle School, reside in Stamford, and were born prior to September 1, 2007, should register for Middle School Baseball on this website (registration at this stage is free), and then need to attend one of the tryouts listed below.
Importantly, while we still call this our Middle School program, that name no longer means that the players will play for their school, and the program no longer has any ties to the Stamford Board of Education, nor will any of the activities be coordinated by or through the schools.
Instead, all registered players will attend the tryouts listed below based on their districted high school, which is determined by their home address. Once all players have tried out, our Spring Middle School teams will be chosen as follows:
There will be two travel "varsity" teams - the Stamford Knights and the Stamford Vikings
