Welcome to the home of the
Evansville Rural Baseball League
All City Babe Ruth League at McCutchanville
McCutchanville Baseball will again be hosting All City Babe Ruth this Summer @ the Old North High School Annex within our complex. This league is primarily focused on continued competitive baseball for our local high school players who may not have the opportunity to play Legion ball or desire to travel. This is a great chance to continue playing on this summer! The league will also be open to other teams within the region as a qualifier for the Babe Ruth State Championships in the 15, 16 and 18U divisions.
We will be hosting the 15U State Championship this year, so this will be a nice @ HOME bonus for the 15 year old teams desiring to follow the trail!
Online Registration will open this Monday, May 11. Coaches desiring to bring complete teams should contact me directly. I realize that it may take some time to solidify your rosters, so you need only make a commitment now and you can provide your rosters prior to the season. I will need this asap for chartering and insurance.
Players 15-18 are eligible. Complete teams are desired, but partial teams (if coached) and individual players are welcome.
Individual players will be placed in a pool after open tryout where they may be drafted by teams desiring to pick up players. Other teams may be formed at this time. There is no guarantee of selection.
Tryout dates will be posted as soon as possible.
ALL PLAYERS MUST COMPLETE OUR ONLINE REGISTRATION. HOWEVER, REGISTRATION FEES WILL NOT BE COLLECTED UNTIL TEAMS/PLAYERS HAVE BEEN SELECTED AND APPROVED. THIS WILL ALSO BE DUE PRIOR TO YOUR FIRST GAME.
The cost per player will be is $125.00 if a uniform shirt/hat are provided. For those teams who already have team uniforms, the cost is $100.00 per player.
Play is slated to begin just after sectionals on Saturday June 6th. Week day game nights will be Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays beginning at 530pm and Saturday and Sunday afternoons (times TBD based on the number of teams). Additional game nights may be added based on number of teams. The schedule will be released as quickly as possible after all teams are approved for play. We will work with everyone to create the most ideal schedule for your team.
For further details, contact me at the following. Emails are preferred.
Further information will be posted in the upcoming week on our website, along with a registration link. http://leaguelineup.com/welcome.asp?url=morac&sid=351146122

Attention Pony National Teams...
Please check your schedules on the website. Holy Rosary will NOT have a Pony National team now, and schedules had previously been posted with them included. New games have been assigned, so please verify your current schedule and let us know ASAP if there are any conflicts.
Reminder on rainouts/reschedules - plus the "Coach Contact" section
A quick reminder on rainouts: As the home team, if you postpone or suspend a game due to rain/weather conditions/lightning, you need to update the status of the game as postponed (PPD) or suspended (SPD). Keep in mind that just because one field is cancelled, it doesn't mean every field is. We don't like to assume if you have or haven't played. If you don't update to PPD/SPD, we'll put you on the list for needing a reported score.
If suspended, it's best to use the comments/notes field to give information about when the game was suspended so it is easier to pick it up at a later date (example: Game called in top of 2nd inning, 2 outs, #12 Bailey up to bat with 3-2 count, bases empty. Game tied 1-1)
Rescheduling games: The home team has 7 days to provide the visiting team with 3 alternate dates. Please try to schedule your makeup game as soon as possible, rather than scheduling into the last week or two of the season. Once you have agreed on a new date/time, email that information to firstname.lastname@example.org -- please list your division, teams involved, original date and new date/time.
**Coaches/parks are responsible for securing officials for rescheduled games. Please contact the original umpires to give them the option first, then you may contact any other official if the original umpires are not available. If you would like an umpire request placed on the website for your game, please email that information when you submit your rescheduled game info. **
"Coach Contact Needed" menu: Please check this periodically to see if your team needs updates for PPD/SPD games, score reporting, or pitching reporting. **If you are reporting pitching and the opposing team doesn't have their roster updated, you can add that information in the comments/information section temporarily. **
New "In Search of Officials" menu option
I've created a new page where we can list games that still need one or more officials. Coaches, if you have games that should be listed please send the information (Division, Home team, Location, Date and Time -- plus number of officials needed) to me (Heather) at email@example.com. I will get those posted and update the page (and you) when the official(s) are secured. Please encourage any officials that you know to check this page for open assignments.
