Hitting Clinics Scheduled for Thursday (2/11) - CANCELLED

The Hitting Clinics scheduled for Thursday (2/11) have been cancelled.  With most of the side roads still barely passable, there's no sense in taking chances with traveling.  No make up date has been scheduled.  With team practices beginning next week, it will be difficult to fit them in at this point.  We will continue to look at the schedule, and inform you of any changes.



Sunday, April 25
Tuesday, April 27 - Game Status Update (as of 4:00)

4:00 pm Update - All games are on for Tuesday night. 

As of 1:30, the games scheduled for Tuesday night are still on.  Both A Field and C Field have had the standing water removed, and DiamondDry has been applied where necessary.  There are still a few spots on A Field that are soft and wet, but we expect that (with help from the sun and wind) it will dry well enough to play on by game time.  C Field, on the other hand, is still very soft and wet throughout most of the field.  We remain hopeful to be able to play on C Field tonight, although at this point, it would be a longshot.  B Field will still be unplayable tonight.

The plan is to get another update later this afternoon on the field conditions, and make a final determination around 4:00 pm.  If any of the games are cancelled, it will be posted here on the website, and the affected managers will be contacted.



Sunday, April 25
Board of Directors Meeting - Rescheduled

Update on Games Scheduled for Monday, May 3 (as of 4:30 pm)

As of 4:30 pm... Games on A Field and B Field will be played as scheduled.  The game on C Field is cancelled.  A make-up date will be announced shortly. 

As of 2:30 pm... The games scheduled for A Field and B Field are on as scheduled.  The A-Coach Pitch game between Greenwood Cemetery and Hamilton Dental on C Field is cancelled due to field conditions. 

There is another line of storms that is expected to pass through the area around 4:00 pm this afternoon.  If we get any rain from those storms, there is a good chance that the game on B Field will also be cancelled.  We think that A Field can take a little more water, but any significant rain will jeopardize those games also.

Check back often for further updates.  We will update the site as necessary throughout the afternoon.



Saturday, May 15
Saturday's Games Update (as of 8:00 am)

8:00 am - The 10:00 games on B Field and C Field are cancelled.  Make up dates will be announced later this afternoon.  The 10:00 game on A Field will be played as scheduled.

The fields took on a good amount of water last night.  A lot of work is needed on B Field and C Field is there is any expectation of playing at all on those fields today.  Any and all help working on the fields will be greatly appreciated.



Tuesday, May 18
Wednesday Game Status

As of 4:45 pm, games on B Field and C Field are cancelled due to wet conditions.  Games on A Field will be played as scheduled.

As of 1:00 pm, all games are on for tonight.  However, B Field and C Field were still very wet this morning with a considerable amount of standing water.  Unless there is significant help at the field this afternoon, there is a real possiblity that the games scheduled for B Field and C Field will be cancelled.  A Field is in much better condition, but also needs some work. 

Updates will be provided throughout the day as necessary.

June 2005 - Board of Directors' Message
The HTRBA Board of Directors would like thank everyone for their efforts in making 2005 season a success.   As you know, running a volunteer organization is not without a few bumps along the road ...... but whether you helped with field duty, concession stand duty, fundraising, coaching or changing your schedule for a re-scheduled game,  you helped turn those bumps into opportunities that created a positive environment for our children!  And for that we THANK YOU!!!!

Additionally, HTRBA is excited to be the host for the 10 Year old District 12 finals (July 16-24) as well as the 8 year-old tournament (July 2- 15).  If you are interested in volunteering to help with any aspect of these events, please contact Bob Arimenta at 609 954-1039.

Again, thank you for your part in making HTRBA a great place to play baseball!

New League Age Determination Date Goes Into Effect
WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (Oct. 5, 2005) – Last May, the Little League International Board of Directors, governing body for the world’s largest organized youth sports program, accepted a recommendation from USA Baseball to change the league age determination date for its players starting in the 2006 season.

Stories about the change appeared in the media, on the Little League web site, and in the Little Leaguer e-newsletter last spring. Little League is again releasing details of the change as local leagues begin planning registration drives for the 2006 season.

The league age determination date is the age a player has attained as of a specific date, for the purpose of placing the player in a particular division. The old date in the baseball and softball divisions of Little League was July 31.

Starting with the 2006 season, the date in all divisions of Little League Baseball will be April 30 of the current year/season. The date in all divisions of Little League Softball will be Dec. 31 of the previous year.

For example: Under the old regulation, a baseball player who turns 13 years old in May, June or July of 2006 would have been considered league-age 13 for the entire 2006 season. That would have been the case, despite the fact that such a player likely would have played most or all of the regular season (which generally ends in June) without having actually reached his or her 13th birthday. Under the new regulation, such a player will have a league age of 12 throughout the 2006 season.

Under the old softball regulation, a player who turns 13 from January through July of 2006 would have been considered league-age 13 for the entire 2006 season. Under the new regulation, such a player will have a league age of 12 throughout the 2006 season.

USA Baseball represents amateur baseball in the U.S. as a member of the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) and the International Baseball Association Federation (IBAF). Virtually every major national youth baseball organization in the U.S., including Little League, is a USA Baseball National Member. USA Baseball recommended that the league age determination date be changed from July 31 to April 30, for the 2006 season for all youth baseball organizations.

The change was made in softball to reflect the fact that most national youth softball organizations use Dec. 31 as the league age determination date. More than four years of study went into the decision, along with years of discussions with Little League’s senior volunteers at the local level.

“We realize that our local leagues will take a little time to become accustomed to the new league age determination date,” said Joe Losch, vice president of operations and corporate secretary for Little League Baseball and Softball. “We are confident the changes can be implemented, and the transition will be a smooth one.”

Also, the Little League International Board of Directors approved a change that provides an option for 12-year-olds to “play up” in the Junior Division. Since the change affects other aspects of the program, Little League has been gathering questions and comments from the field on the issue, and has taken all of these into account.

IT'S OFFICIAL!!!! COACH PITCH Minor League Approved!

We are excited to announce that on October 13, 2005, the HTRBA Board of Directors unanimously voted yes to the creation of a Coach Pitch Minor League.  As a result, this division will be comprised of the following age groups: all 7 year olds, 6 year olds with 1 year of T-ball experience and 8 year olds who either opt out or are not drafted into the International Division.  We believe that this format will provide our younger players an opportunity to learn the fundamentals of baseball in an extremely positive and safe environment.

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.

Yogomix Fund-raiser

HTRBA Little League has partnered with Yogomix Frozen Yogurt to help raise funds for HTRBA’s Indoor Training Facility Renovation. Attached is a flyer containing coupons that will donate 10% of your entire purchase back to HTRBA Little League. The coupons are good at any time and at both Hamilton locations. You can use a coupon during every visit – just keep printing them out, but a coupon must be presented for the league to receive the donation.

Pass this along to family, friends, and neighbors. This is a great way to help the league and support a league sponsor!

Indoor Training Facility Renovation



The HTRBA Board of Directors is pleased to announce that a campaign to raise funds for the renovation of our Indoor Training Facility is now underway. The renovations are planned to be completed in phases over the next few years. The first phase will address needed infrastructure fixes and upgrades. The following phases will result in a complete makeover including new flooring, a new net system, and aesthetic improvements.

While some of these upgrades will be funded from our operating budget, additional fund-raisers will be necessary to cover all of the costs. These fund-raisers will not be mandatory and will be designed to appeal to people from both within the league and outside the league. We have no intention of adding to our members’ financial burden. We will certainly ask for assistance with these fund-raisers, but it will always be voluntary.

The first fund-raiser will be a Super Bowl Block Pool 50/50. Each block will be $25. Half of the money will be for prizes and the other half goes toward to the renovation fund. More details will be announced in the coming days. We also have a league event at a Trenton Titans hockey game scheduled for March. Look for other events in the coming months.

A committee chaired by Bill Scannon will oversee the project. For more information, or to volunteer to help the committee, please send an email to BattingCageFundraisers@HTRBA.com.
