TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Tallahassee Babe Ruth’s impact on baseball players in the Capitol City is hard to measure. The organization has pumped out major league ballplayers and coaches all across the country. But a cornerstone of their mission is rooted in their desire to create opportunities for the future.

On Sunday night eight scholarship recipients were honored and recognized for their academic and community achievements that have supplemented their careers playing Babe Ruth baseball in Tallahassee. Those eight recipients each receiving $1,000 scholarships. Each recipient reflected on their time playing in an essay. A common theme found in every one of them was the long-term success they’ve had and feel prepared to keep accomplishing because of the commitment the Tallahassee-Leon Babe Ruth organization took in them.
