Fall Ball Registration is OPEN!

Dear RHLL families,

New hats and jerseys have been ordered, now we need players who are looking to have fun wearing them! RHLL Fall Ball registration is now open and ready for you to sign up!

Registration is open now through 8/14/2019.
Please register as soon as possible, as teams will be formed on a space-available basis.  

Visit www.rhllbaseball.com to register! 

 

Registration options and fees –

  • Juniors: Kids who were 12 years old players Spring 2019, $95 per player
  • Majors: Mainly 11-12 years old, $95 per player
  • AAA: Mainly 9-10 years old, $95 per player
  • AA: Mainly 7-8 years old, $95 per player

The Fall Baseball season starts the first weekend after Labor Day and continues through late October.  Teams will play on average two games per week, with games on either Friday evening, Saturday afternoon or Sunday afternoon (when most games occur). There will be a few practices leading into the season, followed by game focus once the season starts. The Fall Ball game schedule is designed to enable participation with other fall sports but does not guarantee it will work with every schedule. Please note in your registration whether your child will mainly focus on baseball in the fall, or is playing other fall sports with baseball on the side. This will allow us to set up the teams for the most enjoyment for each player.

The goal of Fall Ball is fun and to keep kids throwing and swinging bats. Players will play various positions and be given an opportunity to work on all aspects of their game. Players should play at the level they will be playing in the Spring of 2020.  For instance, if your son or daughter played AA in the spring 2019 but will move up to AAA in spring 2020, then he/she should play AAA for Fall Ball 2019.  If you're not sure which level your child will play next season, this is a good opportunity to play up and see if he/she is ready for it. 

Please see below for more information and a list of Frequently Asked Questions about Fall Ball.

Thank you for your support of Raleigh Hills Little League!

Frequently asked questions:

Can my child play both soccer or football and baseball?

A: In the past, many families have balanced Fall baseball and soccer, and several have played football and baseball, but the decision is up to you and your family. Football in particular can be a strain, although many have done it, especially to participate in Sunday games.  We try to carry larger fall rosters to accommodate possible conflicts, and the coaches understand that nearly all players will have other priorities and commitments. That said, you should sign up for fall ball with just games and commit to attending at least 60% of the games to make it worthwhile on both sides if you plan on playing another sport.

When and where are Fall Ball games?

A: Fall baseball involves two games per weekend. The games can be Friday evening, Saturday late afternoon, and/or Sunday afternoon, although most games are on Sunday, including an occasional double header.  Games can be local (Alpenrose, Sunset Park, or THPRD main complex) or require travel within the greater Portland area to fields such as Cook Park in Tigard or Westlake or Waluga Parks in Lake Oswego.  There are usually a few games that require travel to the eastside or towns along Highway 30 that are part of Little League District 2, who co-sponsors Fall Ball with our local district. There are no make-ups.

What age players are on fall ball teams?

A: Players will play on a team as determined by their baseball age for 2020, meaning players who will be 11 or 12 are normally in the Majors division, and players who will be 9 or 10 are normally in the AAA division.

We will also try to field a couple of teams to play in the AA (7-8 years old) division of Fall Ball, possibly in conjunction with players from a neighboring league. Keep in mind that if we do field a team, games will be played by rules that prevail in most leagues in D4, which means that some combination of player and coach/machine pitch will be used, and players should be ready for that. If we do not have sufficient interest or if families ultimately prefer it, Fall Baseball at this level may revert to a "sandlot" format with a workout and sandlot style game planned at a set time each Sunday at a local field, probably Raleigh Park.

What other teams do we play?

A: RHLL teams play other District 4 teams like SW Portland, Tigard, Lake Oswego, Murrayhill, Cedar Mill and Westview. Fall games are also sometimes played against teams from District 2, including Wilshire-Riverside, Hollywood-Rose City and St. Helens. These games require some travel (but they do more of it than we do!).

Do Fall Ball teams practice?

A: Fall Ball teams may have one or two practices leading into the season, followed by game focus once the season starts.

How much does Fall Baseball cost?

A: $95 per player. Register and pay online at www.rhllbaseball.com
