Babe Ruth league in middle of new ice breaker pre-season tournament

The Carbon Babe Ruth league is trying something new this year, an ice breaker tournament.

League President Bob Etzel says that the idea was for the kids to have more games and to have more fun.

"We just wanted to give them more games to play and this is all pre-season right now," he said on Wednesday.

And they are right in the middle of it.

Play began last Saturday, and will continue through this Saturday (May 1) with a championship game at 7 p.m. on the Carbon Babe Ruth Field in the Toy Atwood Baseball Park.

Etzel says the league is bigger than ever this year with the league consisting of seven teams from Carbon, three from Emery County and one from Green River. The ice breaker tournament, however, has only teams from Carbon pitted against each other.

Saturday's games are set by the seeds based on the play during the week. The first game at 2 p.m. will put the fifth and sixth place seed against one another. A game at 4 p.m. will put the third and fourth seed on the field. And the first and second place team will play in the championship.

"We are so excited about this season because of the extra teams right here in Carbon County," said Etzel. "This setup allows 24 more players to play this year, and with the addition of the teams from Emery County there will be more competition than ever."

The regular season will run from mid-May until nearly the end of June.
