The Board of Directors of RHLL has set a course to strive to be the absolute best Baseball League program we can be, following the National Organization guidelines, rules and regulations to the utmost. We believe in the purpose of Baseball League, in fair play, building character and strong future citizens. Our volunteers are dedicated to providing a place where kids can dream, compete, and accomplish.
Starting with T-Ball for five and six year olds, and then Rookies for 6-8 year olds, the emphasis is on instruction and teaching kids how to play the great game.
Baseball then moves on to AA for 8 – 10 year olds, and AAA for 9 – 10 year olds where the emphasis is still on learning and improving fundamentals. Players are guaranteed minimum playing time and managers are encouraged to allow players to get experience at several positions.
Major baseball provides a very competitive atmosphere for those 10 -11 -12 year olds who are ready to fine-tune their skills. Normal “substitution” rules apply with minimums of two defensive innings of play and one time at bat.
Intermediate baseball provide 11-13 yr olds with their first experience of playing baseball that allows runners to lead off and requiring pitcher to hold runners on. Diamond dimensions are bigger than Majors with a 50 ft mound and 70 ft bases.
Junior baseball serves our 13 – 15 year olds with competitive play and a larger diamond (54ft mound, 80 ft bases, providing opportunity to prepare to play high school ball.
For softball, Rookies are 7 – 8 year olds, with our Minor division consisting of 9 – 10 year olds and the Major division consists of 11 – 13 year olds. The emphasis is on fun and learning.
The practice schedule is determined by manager request. Each team will should get 2 practice days/times each week during practice season. These time slots will be the same each week. This practice schedule will end once we start games.
The game schedule will be available on/around 4/15. Teams average 2-3 games per week. We typically play games Mon-Thur at 630 and all day Saturday. We reserve Friday & Sunday for makeups/reschedules.
