RVLL Inaugural Home Run Derby

RVLL is hosting their inaugural Home Run Derby on Saturday, Oct 6 at Raccoon Valley Little League.

Age Divisions are 4-6, 7-8, 9-10 for $10 and 11-13, 14-18 and adult for $25 when you register online before Saturday. Walk-ups are welcome and will cost $5 more.

We are super excited for this first ever event at the fields. A huge thanks to our sponsors for making this possible: Reynolds & Reynolds, Fat Tuesday Productions, Spaulding Berg & Schmidt, Neumann Monson Architects, Terry Taylor State Farm, ABC Electrical Services, Advanced Construction & Roofing, Aluminum Distributors Inc. and Echo Electrical Services.

Prizes will be awarded, concessions with a hot grill will be available and giveaways  will make everyone happy.

We are also looking for volunteers to help with this event, including pitchers, catchers, counters and setup/teardown.

Register today to try to be our first Home Run Derby champion.

Playing details: you have your own pitcher or use one of ours. Hitters will try to hit as many home runs as they can before reaching 10 outs. Home run lines will be created for each division. Ages 4-6 may hit off a tee if they prefer. Depending on total number of registrations we'll either play on one field or two.
Prizes will be awarded to the top two hitters in each division.

Pitching speed contest: three pitches for $1. Guess how fast your pitch is. Win a prize if you are within 2mph of your guess.



2018 Competition Update

By RVLL 10/26/2017, 10:00am CDT

AA (9-10 year old) - Will have both a competitive and a developmental division.

Competitive will play on WEEKNIGHTS ONLY (tournament players and teams welcome) and is intended for players with more advanced skills. Developmental is intended for players with more of a recreational intent and will focus on developing baseball skills. This league will play on WEEKNIGHTS AND WEEKENDS.

Seniors (15-18) Will play on WEEKENDS ONLY and will cater to both recreational and high school baseball players. Those with existing high school baseball commitments are encouraged to play as we will have fewer conflicts with school ball.

Juniors (13-14) Will play on WEEKNIGHTS ONLY and will provide a bridge between the intermediate and senior division. This division is intended for both competitive and recreational players and tournament players and teams are welcome. Players age 13 will still be eligible to play intermediate baseball if they desire.

Any full-team entry from outside RVLL will be subject to approval by the RVLL competition committee.
