Rules Change For Yearling and Mustang Leagues

RABA and LaVista Commissioners met in September and discussed the need to update the rules for both the Yearling and Mustang Leagues to make them more competitive at a recreational level during inner-league play. The rules will be posted as soon as they have been updated.

RABA's Wall of Honor

RABA has placed a new sign or "Wall of Honor" at Pierson Field. The base of the sign will form the shape of a baseball and will be made up of three different sized pavers. The medium & large pavers will make up the outside ring of the base and the smaller pavers will make up the the rest of the base. We are taking donations for these pavers at a cost of $75 for the small pavers, $100 for the medium pavers, and $150 for the larger pavers. Included with the donation price is the engraving cost.  The small pavers will have a maximum of 20 letters, the medium pavers will have a maximum of 25 letters, and the large pavers will have a maximum of 35 letters.  If you are interested in donating you can do so by filling out the online form and pay using a credit card or print it out and mail it to the address at the bottom of the form.

If you have any questions regarding the Recreation League please send an email to the
VP Recreation League ( Email Questions To ) at:  vp_recreation@ralstonbaseball.org.

If you have any questions regarding the Competitive League please send an email to the

Alone At The Plate

He pulls on a helmet, picks up the bat, and walks to the plate, "Gotta hit, and that's that!"

The crowd starts to yell, the game's on the line, last inning, two outs, the score's nine to nine!

Dad yells, "GO GET IT!", and mom wrings her hands, coach hollers, "HIT IT!", but alone there he stands.

Heroes are made in seconds such as this, but he's just a little boy, what if he should miss?

Years after this game's ended and he's little no more, will he remember the outcome or even the score?

No, he'll have forgotten if he was out, hit, or a run, he'll only look back on his friends and the fun.

So cheer this boy on, alone with his fate, help him remember with fondness this stand at the plate.

Spend your time wisely and help in his quest to be a hitter with confidence and always his best.

And when the game's over, this boy can stand tall, for you've helped him prepare to give it his all!
