OTHER INFO ABOUT FALL BALL
WEEKEND TEAMS- The team that travels on the weekends will be posted every Thursday night. There is no guarantee that your child will travel to any weekend games. The registration money ($300 that you are paying) guarantees no games. It is for the 20 practices ($15 per practice) and instruction that they will receive during that time.
UNIFORM- Players need to provide their own baseball pants, hat, bat, glove. All players will be provided a fall 3/4 sleeve t-shirt as a uniform top.
MEALS- Due to no sponsorships for the fall season, players will be required to purchase ALL of their meals on weekend trips.
TRAVEL- We will provide transportation for trips on weekends.
CODE OF CONDUCT- Players will follow the same code of conduct followed during the regular season. Suspensions during fall season can carry over to the spring season and vice versa.
SCRIMMAGES- Every Thursday night we will scrimmage as part of our Riders World Series (7 game series). These scrimmages are open to the public.
FUNDRASING- Each player that plays Fall Ball will sell a pack of Fall Raffle tickets. These tickets are due all sold back to Coach Perleberg on Friday, Oct 12.
ABOUT RIDERS FALL BALL- The Riders fall program is a 6-week program offered for our players that do not play other fall sports. It was started in the fall of 2006, by Coach Perleberg. The program starts usually at the end of August and extends through the middle of October. Practices are three nights a week. The team also has live inter-squad scrimmages throughout the fall. This is not a rec-type league. The purpose is to get better and to further develop our existing players, while giving new players an idea of what our program is about. We are very disciplined in what we do and players must understand this before signing up. All players are also required to sell fall raffle tickets as part of their fundraising for this fall program.
This phase of our season focuses a lot on developing fundamental skills, becoming familiar with our system, and improving each individual player in the areas that they need to focus on the most. We also incorporate a lot of scrimmages during the week, highlighted by the Riders Fall World Series. We will travel to 5-6 weekends with a select team on the weekends to play games as well. It's a great way for players of all calibers to continue developing as individuals and for our team to start shaping itself for the next Spring.
