About Midlakes Babe Ruth

The Midlakes Babe Ruth Baseball (MBRB) is a private, non-profit organization that provides spring and summer athletic programs for boys and girls in the Phelps – Clifton Springs area. MBRB (or its predecessors) has been around for almost 50 years. MBRB baseball is a coed, recreational program designed for beginners, “veterans” and all skill levels in between. Unlike many competitive-minded programs, our child-centered approach emphasizes sportsmanship and fun over winning and statistics. In short, our games are competitive but our coaches and players are not. MBRB baseball players learn the game the right way, without coaches and parents pushing too hard, and without the fear of failure sapping their enjoyment of the game. We want them to develop their skills in a setting that makes them want to play baseball year after year. At the same time, they should learn sportsmanship and team play make some new friends and have an enjoyable spring and summer. Our approach also centers upon the family experience, where the entire family can get involved as coaches, helpers, treat providers, etc., and can also enjoy spring and summer evenings with friends and neighbors watching the kids have fun.

In keeping with that philosophy, “the MBRB way” to coach is to create a positive, supportive environment that lets everyone participate and succeed to the best of their individual abilities. We think every kid in the program should be given equal and fair attention.
