Re: Slash Bunting

The Babe Ruth League, Inc. International Board of Directors, at their November 2015 meeting, voted to eliminate slash bunting in the Cal Ripken Division. 
As such, the 2016 Babe Ruth League rulebook will reflect this change to read:
Cal Ripken Division – Fake Bunt – Slash Bunt – A batter is out for illegal action when the player fakes a bunt and then takes a full swing, thus eliminating a player from fake bunting (slap-hitting) the ball.  Penalty:  Batter is out, the ball is dead, no runners may advance.
As this rule does take into account the safety and well-being of our players, we are implementing this regulation for all Cal Ripken Division tournaments for 2015 and asking you to advise your tournament sites and directors of this change.
2015 Babe Ruth League, Inc. Baseball Rules and Regulations Clarifications:
  • Page 19 HOCKEY STYLE CATCHER’S MASKS are approved in all divisions of Cal Ripken Baseball and Babe Ruth Baseball.
  • Page 21 – EXTRA PLAYER (EP) is allowed in all divisions of Cal Ripken Baseball and Babe Ruth Baseball.
  • Babe Ruth Baseball (All Divisions) – Official Baseball Rule 6.10 does not apply.  The designated hitter rule is not permitted at any level of Babe Ruth Baseball or Cal Ripken Baseball. 

Thank you for your cooperation with this matter.  If you have any questions, please contact Babe Ruth Headquarters.
