Ramsey High School Softball graciously provided the RBSA with a winter clinic for our players in grades 3 thru 6 on February 6th. We had over 40 girls in attendance!
Our 7th & 8th graders will now get to become "Rams for a Day" while working out with the high school softball team during the week of 2/11.
Many special thanks to Coach Caserta and his coaching team for always doing so much to keep our rec program strong!
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 @ firstname.lastname@example.org) 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.
