Second Season 2019

RVLL Second Season Starts Tonight

Parents, 

 

Second season at RVLL begins tonight.   We will have board members present this evening  and tomorrow night at 5pm to distribute uniforms, catching gear and batting helmets.  Teams from 7/8 through Seniors will be given catching gear if coaches do not already have it.   Teams in 5/6 will be given 3-4 batting helmets.  Tees for tee-ball will be placed on the fields used for these games.  Tees can be left on the field after games.  

We have also posted a rules summary for second season as well as some general park expectations.  Please follow the link below to access this information:   

 

Second Season Rules 

 

In general, we ask that fans, players and coaches show respect to our umpires, coaches and opponents at all times.  Coaches, please make every attempt to rotate pitchers, catchers and other fielders to ensure opportunity for as many players as possible.   Winning games is not the purpose of this program.   Ideally, pitchers should be limited to two innings per game and catchers should be rotated frequently. 

 

Coaches - Please remember to REMOVE ALL TRASH from dugouts after each game.   Otherwise, our park turns into a trash tornado.  

 

Please also keep in mind that it will likely be very hot over the next five weeks.  Make sure your children have adequate hydration.   RVLL's concession stand is going to be selling bulk Gatorade that players can fill directly to their drink containers.  Any size for 50 cents.   Bottled water, burgers, dogs, and other refreshments will also be available nightly. 

 

Thanks for playing second season at RVLL, we hope everyone has a GREAT Summer! 

 

Thanks, 

 

Patrick MacFarland, RVLL Board President
