Babe Ruth Baseball Nears Season Start

The Wolf Point Mosquitoes have started practice and are just over one week from the first game, a preseason contest with
Culbertson at Wolf Point, Friday, May 9.
The Mosquitoes are chartered by the national Babe Ruth Baseball League. The 13 players are between 13 and 15 years old.
“This is third year for Babe Ruth after a three-year absence,” Craig Smith, president of the Wolf Point Baseball Association, said.
Wolf Point has been without an American Legion team for four years. Smith sees the Babe Ruth program as a path to establishing a new Legion team, but not this year.
“Our goal is to hopefully, in the next couple of years, to have the Legion program reinstated,” Smith said. “We’d like to get that Legion program up and running as soon as possible.”
Since the Wolf Point Yellowjackets American Legion team disbanded, a few high school boys from Wolf Point and Poplar have played for the Glasgow team.
This year there is one, Waylon Youpee, a Poplar High School student.
“That’s quite a commute to commit to,” Smith said of the nearly 150-mile round trip between Poplar and Glasgow for games and practices.
“He’s one of the kids we are hoping to get our Legion program up and running for,” he said.
“The boys just won a couple of games last year but showed a lot of competitiveness going into the district tournament. I think they are going to be real competitive this year,” Smith said.
For now, Smith is looking forward to the season ahead and hosting the Babe Ruth district baseball tournament at Wolf Point in June.
