2014 Fall Ball Program

HTRBA Little League is now accepting registrations for the 2014 Fall Baseball season. This is a recreational / instructional program.  No standings are kept and emphasis is on learning and enjoyment of the game.

The cost is $50 per child. There are no fund-raisers or snack stand duties. The Fall Ball season begins in late August / early September and ends late October / early November.  Games will be played both at our fields and at other Little League fields in our area.

The teams will be comprised of approximately 15 players per team.  We can have teams at three levels... Coach Pitch (ages 5 - 7), Minors (ages 7, 8 & 9), and Majors (ages 9, 10 & 11).  AGE IS BASED ON PLAYING AGE FOR 2014 SEASON (age as of 4/30/14).  Players will be placed on teams according to both age and ability.

We will field a team in your child's age group only if

(1) we get a sufficient number of players, and…

(2) we get someone to volunteer to manage that team

Manager responsibilities include attending a pre-season organizational meeting to create a schedule and discuss rules, running practices and games, and effectively communicating with parents.  Please reply to this email if you are interested in managing a team.

Registration for the Fall Ball season will all be done on-line.  To register, please click on the Fall Ball Registration button at the top of the home page. Processing Fees are included in the $50 registration fee.  Payment must be received prior to any player participating in any Fall Ball activity.  Additionally, all outstanding balances must be brought current for a player to be eligible to participate. 

If you have a specific issue that prevents you from paying, or if you are unable to register on-line, please send an email to president@htrba.com explaining your situation.

Deadline is Sunday, August 23, 2014. Teams are filled on a first come, first served basis. Late registrations will only be accepted if there is room on a roster, otherwise your child will be placed on a waiting list.  As stated, teams will be created based on the number of players that register and the availability of a team manager.   

For more information, please contact Dave Edwards at 609.516.9585.  Email inquiries can also be sent to information@HTRBA.com .

It looks like the hot weather is here to stay, so it's important for all athletes, especially young athletes, to properly hydrate before, during, and after any physical activity. Dehydration happens quickly during hot weather, and not only leads to poor performance, but potentially serious ailments. This site provides the most complete guidelines that we have come across for young athletes to follow to help avoid becoming dehydrated.

New Player Eligibility Rule

Little League International recently changed the Player Eligibility Rule to allow players who attend a school within the boundaries of another league to play for that league. For example, a player who lives in Nottingham Little League's area, but attends Morgan Elementary School can now play for HTRBA. So, any child who attends the following schools, regardless of where they live, can now play at HTRBA: Greenwood, Klockner, Kuser, Mercerville, Morgan, OLS, and University Heights. Please pass this along to your child's classmates' parents, and let them know that your kids can now all play together in the same league.
