Fall Ball Registration

Registration for Fall Ball 2015 for Juniors and Tee Ball is still open and can be completed by clicking the Register Now link to the right or the Register Online tab to the left. 

Fall Ball Registration for all other divisions is closed

First games will start Sep. 12 and the season will run through Oct 31.  Teams will typically have a weeknight practice (starting after Labor Day on Sep. 8) with games on Saturdays.

For the fall season, players typically play in the division that they would be playing in for the Spring 2016 season.  RLL is currently planning to have teams in the following divisions:  Juniors/Seniors (13/14/15/16s), Majors 50/70 (11/12s), Minors (9/10s), Machine Pitch (7/8s) and Tee Ball (4/5/6s).  For the fall, we will be combining Minors 10 and Minors 9 into Minors, and Machine Pitch 8 and Machine Pitch 7 will be combined into Machine Pitch.

Richmond Little League (RLL) is open to boys and girls, ages 5 to 16, who reside within the boundaries of RLL or attend classes at a school that is physically located within RLL’s boundaries.  Select the RLL Eligibility tab on the website for further information.

Little League Bat Policy
Intermediate (50/70) Division (primarily 12s and 11s, some 13s) and Juniors (primarily 14s and 13s)

RLL adheres to Little League's policy for its 50/70 baseball and Juniors divisions.  Basically, large barrel bats are legal, provided they comply with all Little League rules (only aluminum or wood bats, or composite barrel bats that are BBCOR certified).  Small barrel bats are also legal provided they meet all Little League standards and do not contain composite materials in the barrel (bat head).

As stated by Little League rule 1.10:   It shall not be more than 34 inches in length; nor more than 2 5/8 inches in diameter, and if wood, not less than fifteen-sixteenths (15/16) inches in diameter (7/8 inch for bats less than 30”) at its smallest part. All composite barrel bats shall meet the Batted Ball Coefficient of Restitution (BBCOR) (-3) performance standard, and such bats shall be so labeled with a silkscreen or other permanent certification mark. The certification mark shall be rectangular, a minimum of a half-inch on each side and located on the barrel of the bat in any contrasting color.

Here's a link to Little League's 50/70 Rules and Bat Q&A:
http://www.littleleague.org/learn/equipment/baseballbatinfo.htm

Another important note from Little League:
Q-11: Can a bat with a 2 1/4 inch barrel be used in Junior League Baseball and Intermediate (50/70) Baseball Division?
A: Yes, but not all 2 1/4 inch bats can be used. If a bat’s barrel has no composite materials in it, it may be used in the Junior League Baseball and the Intermediate (50/70) Baseball Divisions, provided it is labeled with a BPF (bat performance factor) of 1.15 or less, and meets the standards for length, handle diameter, etc. But if the bat has composite materials in the barrel, a 2 1/4-inch barrel MAY NOT be used; only a 2 5/8-inch BBCOR bat may be used.

Basically, any bat with a composite barrel (bat head) is illegal (unless BBCOR (-3)). A bat may contain composite material in the handle so long as it's not in the barrel bat head.  When using a 2 ¼ bats use this list to review a bat and make sure it doesn’t have a composite barrel bat head.
