  • Step 2 - JML members help support the league through their time, effort and an annual contribution of $25.  This contribution helps support various activities and services that JML provides to players and the community.  You can find more information on the JML membership registration process below.

STEP 1 - Background Screening & Abuse Prevention Training

The Safe Sport Authorization Act of 2017, signed into law effective February 14, 2018, creates a new standard of care that affects all youth-serving organizations around the country, not just Babe Ruth League, Inc. or just the sports of youth baseball and softball.  This law mandates that all amateur sports organizations, which participate in an interstate or international amateur athletic competition and whose membership includes any adult who is in regular contact with an amateur athlete who is a minor, must report suspected child abuse, including sexual abuse, within 24 hours to law enforcement.

All adult Babe Ruth League volunteers, including Cal Ripken Baseball league volunteers,  MUST comply with Babe Ruth League mandates – Coaches Certification and Background Screening - as well as comply with the Safe Sport Act requirements - Abuse Awareness and Prevention Training and the Mandatory reporting of Child Abuse. 

Babe Ruth League, Inc. strongly suggests and advises all managers, coaches, board members, umpires, as well as any other persons/volunteers, who provide regular service to the league, and/or have repetitive access to, or contact with, players or teams, use the services of SportsEngine.  Any Babe Ruth League volunteer can complete Background Screening and Abuse Prevention Training offered by SportsEngine for a nominal fee of $25 per person that is valid for two years.

Note:  JML appears as Milford Junior Major BRL/CRL (Babe Ruth League / Cal Ripken League).  Allow 90 minutes for Abuse Prevention Training.
