Again I'd say it really depends on the region of the country. In some parts, it's outstanding. In others, travel ball and other alternatives are better. I personally feel you can really get a lot out of any organized baseball by playing for a good coach, working hard off the field to develop skill and strength, and by studying/learning the game. If this work ethic comes from within, you will be successful. And you can do that in Sr. Babe Ruth, Legion ball, Rec league, travel ball...really anywhere.
