the staff of the Ridgewood blog

Ridgewood NJ, we have been told over and over that there are not enough playing fields in the Village for the RBSA , but a recent ride around the village would suggest otherwise . We realize it is an isolated moment in time ,but if we are short on fields why does Glen School now have one ball field when it used to have two? By the way the grass looks nice.

USA Baseball Bat Standard Change 2018 , Why, When, What?

20120330_baseball_33

March 3,2018

the staff of the Ridgewood blog

Ridgewood NJ, If you have yet to hear, starting January 2018, bat standards for Little League (14 and younger) will change to a more restrictive bat. The barrels on the bats can be 2 5/8—just larger than the 2 1/4 of previous years. The rule change will only affect those who play in leagues governed by Little League International, and of course, RBSA IS LITTLE LEAGUE COMPLIANT. RBSA ADHERES TO ALL LL REGULATIONS. 2018 Compliant bats will have a logo, similar to the images below.

The new USA Baseball bat standard, or USABat, will allow youth baseball organizations to reach their goal of wood-like bat performance in order to preserve the long-term integrity of the game, as well as instill a sense of uniformity among leagues. To identify officially sanctioned youth bats, look for the “USA Baseball” licensing mark, located on the taper.

On Saturday, March 3 rd , RBSA is offering purchase discounts in conjunction with DICK’S Sporting Goods in Paramus, located on Route 17 North.
USE THE ATTACHED COUPON FOR BIG SAVINGS in purchasing 2018 baseball bats.

RBSA softball camp

RBSA softball camp

“My kids tried RBSA softball camp for the first time and LOVED it. I highly recommend it. The counselors taught them great skills. The great thing is it was only $90 a week. You can also pay extra for private lessons for hitting, fielding and pitching.”

Little League Softball: Ridgewood’s run to Junior East Regional finals a team effort

14U softball team for winning the Junior Softball State Championship!

BY RON FOX
CORRESPONDENT |
THE RIDGEWOOD NEWS

Little League rules mandate that every player on a team’s roster must have at least one at-bat in a game.

That was no problem for Tony Barbera, manager of the Ridgewood Under-14 Little League softball team, which roared to district, sectional and state championships this summer and missed by one game of moving on to the Junior Little League World Series in Kirkland, Wash.
