Games are on! Let's hope the rain holds off until after 7pm so we can get a full day of games in!
Opening Day Is In The Books!
The baseball gods definitely smiled on RBVLL tonight, holding off the rain so we could get both games done. The Mets squeaked by the Angels in a nail biter with some late runs, while a late charge by the Royals came up just short against the Cardinals.
Hopefully we'll get lucky again, and the rain will hold off overnight. Our infields can't really absorb any more serious rain yet, so we'll be on weather watch all night. We'll make the go/no go call tomorrow by 8:00am.
Baseball Starts Tonight!
February 27, 2015
We're thrilled to kick off the 2015 Season ight!
Opening Ceremonies will start at WITHOUT . We will have Lupine Hills available for parking, as well as our lot and the upper Optimist Club lot. Teams need to be on the minors field by for the parade. They will proceed in division order (T-ball, A, AA, AAA, Majors), and alphabetically within the division. Have your players in full uniform cleats.
We do have games, so we will start promptly at , and move the ceremonies along as quickly as possible. We encourage you to hang out and watch the night games.

We'll have some very special guests at this opening, and of course our Michelin starred snack bar will be rocking a few specials. You don't want to miss it!
We've been waiting a long time for this. Its GAME TIME!
Limited Practice Schedule Today
February 24, 2015
All City Fields are open for practices today.
All three RBVLL fields are closed today. The batting cages are open, as well as the bullpens on the Majors and Minors fields.
If you are scheduled to use the cages tonight, please limit your out of cage activities. If you are scheduled to have field practice at RBVLL, you may use the bullpens to work pitchers and catchers. If you are a Single A team scheduled for field practice at RBVLL, enjoy your night off.
We should be back to the regular practice schedule tomorrow.
Clinics and Cleanup Day
Opening Ceremonies are right around the corner, Friday Feb 27th! We're going into the final stretch for preseason preparation, and we have a few upcoming events.
District 70 Score Keepers Clinic, Wednesday Feb 25th, 6pm.
Score Keepers Clinics
Score keeping during the regular season is actually fairly simple. Most people are seasoned pros after doing just one inning. However, it is a critical component of each game, and we cannot play without an official score keeper. If you are interested in scoring games, please register here:
There will be a score keeping clinic offered next week as District 70 will host one on Wednesday February 25th, at 6pm, at the North Coast Village Condo Complex, at 999 North PAcific St. in Oceanside. It is the same location as the umpire rules clinic.
Junior scorekeepers can either be paid or get volunteer hours. Parent score keepers are strongly encouraged! We'll send out a score keeper sign up form soon.
Did you take part in the off season umpire training? Did you go to any of the rules or mechanics clinics? Even if the answer to those questions is no, but you are interested in umpiring games, please register with us here:
If you are under 18, you can earn volunteer hours, a snack bar meal, or even some cash. Umpiring is a very rewarding, very fun way to get involved on the field during games. Little League is a training and development program for managers, coaches and umpires too, not just players. So don't be nervous, or think you aren't capable of being an umpire, you are!
RBVLL will have a bin set up in the boardroom starting 2/9 through Opening Ceremonies to collect gently used baseball items such as pants, socks, belts, cleats, undershirts, bats, gloves, etc. Basically, anything you are no longer using that you think another family could benefit from.
District 70 Umpire Clinics
Hey RBVLL Families,
Opening day is just under two weeks away, and we’re anticipating a great season! Many of you and your players participated in our off season umpire training during the fall. It is about time for all that hard work to pay off.
And for those who have not umpired before but are interested in doing so this spring, please email UIC@rbvll.org.
We’ll see you on the field this spring!
If you haven't registered online yet, fill out the online application. You don't have to pay online, you can bring a check to a eligibility verification session if you'd like. Even if you pay online, you still need to come see us at one of our eligibility verification sessions. We'll need to see your child's original birth certificate (copies for out of state is OK), and three forms of residency verification from the list here. The three documents need to be from three different categories.
Please let us know if you have any questions!
