The RBSA opening day parade is scheduled for Saturday April 14th, 2018. The parade will start at the NJ Transit lot on Mechanic Street, proceed along Main Street and turn right onto Church Street as we will once again march to Finch Park for our opening day ceremony.
All RBSA teams must attend the parade and all coaches should have their teams in place in uniform at 8:30am. The parade will begin at 9:00am in order of youngest to oldest alternating girls than boys (starting with girl’s clinic, boy’s clinic, through girl’s seniors and boys Babe Ruth). League Presidents will need to get their league teams in place by 8:45am.
Once again we will kick off the Ramsey RELAY FOR LIFE by dedicating the parade and the day to the fight against cancer. The RBSA will again participate in this year’s RELAY with our Team: A Walk off Against Cancer. We will be collecting donations (which can be placed in the collection containers as they enter Field 2) throughout the day at Finch park.
We will also be conducting our team banner contest with the teams with the best banner from each league winning a prize. The color of the day will again be purple to celebrate the RELAY FOR LIFE and the fight against cancer.

We want to make sure all baseball parents are aware of the new bat standards this year. Most of the major Youth baseball leagues in the US including Little League and Babe Ruth have adopted a unified Bat standard called the USA Bat Standard. The RBSA is following that standard for our leagues from Tiny Tim 8 through Babe Ruth. All bats that do not have the USA BAT Logo will not be allowed this year. The only bats that contain this new logo are 2018 model year bats, so if you have a bat from last year, it is no longer eligible. We have posted information about the new bat standard on our website.
Again, only new 2018 bats with the USA Bat logo are legal this year in TT8 through Babe Ruth. Teeball and Clinic can use bats from previous years. Additionally, for all Babe Ruth participants, please note that BBCOR .5 bats are legal this year in Babe Ruth only. Also note that single piece Wood Bats are Legal across all leagues. Rules on Softball bats have not changed from past years. Please contact me (Shawn Kirk @ email@example.com) with any questions regarding this new bat standard and how it applies to your child.

Interscholastic and youth sports programs play an important role in promoting the physical, social and emotional development of children. It is therefore essential for parents, coaches and officials to encourage youth athletes to embrace the values of good sportsmanship. Moreover, adults involved in youth sports events should be models of good sportsmanship and should always lead by example by demonstrating fairness, respect and self-control.
