Babe Ruth Baseball program to be replaced with lacrosse


The town is eliminating its Babe Ruth baseball program and replacing it with lacrosse. The board of selectmen approved a new lacrosse program that will be run by the town’s recreation department. Babe Ruth league baseball had seen a decrease in interest in recent years. The move comes at the request of town recreation director Dave Yates, who originally asked that lacrosse begin in 2014, but moved it up to next spring after a swell in interest. The Babe Ruth program cost $13,057 to run and brought in $4,130 in revenue. Yates estimated that it would take $12,516 to start up the lacrosse program and run it for the first year.
