Spring All-Stars (Not Fall)

The Cal Ripken and Babe Ruth All-Star Teams are for Eligible Players who are available for the District, State and Regional Tournament Dates (known mid-spring). These Teams will be formed to win with no guarantee of position(s) or playing time.  If your player could get discouraged by this or by not making a team it's suggested that you remove them from being eligible.  

Teams will also have a fee per player on the roster (TBD). If you have any questions about where you live and if you player is eligible please see, they will also list rules and tournament schedules on the website.  The Southeast Region website is  Players in Denver and in Lincoln County are eligible, if you live South of HWY 150, East of 321, West of Catawba River and North of 485 they may be eligible.  Players must have a copy of birth certificates and register for a players card.

It's an exciting time for coaches and players to continue their season and everyone associated will be expected to represent our League to the highest standards!

If you have any additional questions about All-Stars please see the league website page or contact



The ELOC is always looking for good volunteer coaches to help with our baseball teams, our leagues depend on it!  All those who want to be considered must complete an application through the registration system (Click "REGISTER NOW"), there is no charge for this registration and ALL coaches must complete for every season (even if you have coached in the past).  

Towards the end of the Registrations process each League President will contact those who applied if teams are in need of coaches.

If the League President contacts you to coach you will need to complete a background check and become Babe Ruth Certified at (depending on experience it should take an hour or two & $20, advanced class not required).  There is no cost for the background check and the directions can be found under "Documents" Tab to "Coaches Background Checks".
