Our heartfelt condolences to the Wolf family...

JULIE TERESA WOLF (1917-2016) passed away at her residence on Sunday, January 24, 2016.  Her life celebration will be on Friday, January 29th from 2 to 5 and 7 to 9 p.m. at Gray Funeral Directors, 12 Springfield Ave., Cranford, N.J., where her funeral service will begin at 10 a.m. on Saturday, January 30th.  Interment will follow at Mt. Olivet Cemetery, Newark, N.J.

Born in Hudson, N.Y., Julia lived for many years in Roselle Park, where her late husband, Frederick Wolf, served as borough councilman and as the commissioner of the Roselle Park Police Department.  He was involved in organizing local youth baseball leagues in Roselle Park, where the field is named Frederick Wolf Memorial Field.  An avid Nascar fan, Julia was the devoted mother of her son, Frederic Wolf III (Virginia Isley).  She is also survived by nieces and nephews.  She was predeceased by five sisters: Irene Esbrandt, Margaret Ponick, Vilma Stanton, Lillian Misura, and Eleanor Gravelack.

2016 PLAYER REGISTRATION

Please help us spread the word that registration for the 2016 RPYBSL season is OPEN!  The two-page form can be found in the Handouts section of this web site.  Completed applications can be mailed to our P.O. Box, but preferably we'd love to see you in our field house at one of our in-person registration dates (see dates/times below) where sample uniforms will be available for fittings to ensure you select the best size.

What you need to know for 2016:

  • Opening Day Parade & Ceremony will be Saturday, April 16th, but it is critical we close registration February 29th to allow sufficient time to select coaches, run our draft, assign sponsors to each team, order uniforms, and get practices started in advance of our first games.
  • Clinic is open to girls age 5 as of 1/1/16 below 1st grade, and boys age 5-6 as of 5/1/16.  Clinic mostly runs on Adase field Saturdays starting a week after opening day through June using a stations format where the players are taught different aspects of the game.  There will be a Clinic Parents' meeting to discuss this in more detail after registration closes.
  • Baseball divisions are based on age as of 5/1/16: 7/8s, 9/10s, 11/12s, and the Senior Boys are 13-17.
    • 7/8s only play in RP verse other RP teams in their division.
    • *NEW* 9/10s and 11/12s will be playing in and outside of RP verse each other as well as teams from other towns like Kenilworth and Springfield.
    • *NEW* Senior Boys will continue to play in and outside of RP verse each other as well as teams from other towns as a part of a league run out of Union, but our maximum age is moved from 15 to 17 (with the caveat that 17 year-olds cannot pitch) to be consistent with other towns.
  • Softball divisions are based on 15-16 school grade: 1st-2nd, 3rd-5th, 6th-8th, High School (up to maximum registration age).  All teams will continue to play in and outside of RP verse each other as well as teams from other towns like Elizabeth, Kenilworth, Roselle and Garwood.
  • Coaches will draft teams in March and contact their players to get practices started shortly afterward.
