Under the direction of manager, Steve Hanna, Ridgefield 10u All-Star team had one extraordinary season.
From their victory (15-5) over rivals Wilton (earning them title District 1 Champions) followed by another victory over Trumbull last week earning them a spot in in the Final 4, the team truly made Ridgefield fans and their coaches proud.
RLL's Fall Ball is a wonderful opportunity for the player who loves baseball to gain more experience and have fun! The program's primary goal is instruction with the emphasis on skills development. Games are played with winners and losers but no standings are kept and no championship is awarded. This program is particularly helpful to those who expect to move up to a new division next spring.
Fall Ball is open to every player regardless of prior experience. It is recommended that a player spend 2 years at each division level. Parents should register players for the division that they will be playing in next year.
There are four levels of play:
50/70 – New this year, 50/70 baseball program is for the stronger majors players and offers play on the larger field with more advanced rules such as leading, stealing and balks. This program is for returning Majors players and those just finishing the Majors program.
Majors Ready*- This division is open to both spring 2015 11U and all Majors players who wish to strengthen their skills in preparation for the Spring 2016 season.
*Playing Fall Ball Majors Ready is no guarantee that you will play in that division in the spring! Tryouts will still be required.
Minors Ready- This division is open to Spring 2015 8U and 9U players.
Rookies Ready- This division is open to Spring 2015 T-ball and Coach Pitch players.
Any player who is new to Ridgefield Little League will be asked to furnish a birth certificate as proof of date of birth.
Practices will start the week of September 1st.
Games will start the weekend of September 12th-September 13th.
The season will continue through October 24th-October 25th.
Each team will have one practice day Monday - Thursday (the same day each week)
Games will be played on Saturdays and Sundays and occasionally on Fridays.
As in previous years, you will have the option of choosing a practice day to help you manage your schedules. Because we are again giving families the same option this year, we anticipate high participation and will do our best to make teams smaller to provide each player more playing time.
