While much “About Us” – and what we’re hoping to do in the baseball community – can be found on other pages of our site, suffice it to say that we’re willing to help out in any which way we can when it comes to baseball.
Be it from offering grassroots programs, such as our original “Just Play Ball” initiative, to helping out those playing college baseball. Whether locally in Richmond where we’re based, or in other regions of the Province.
Let us know any time we can be off assistance to yourself (or anyone that you know) looking to enjoy the game as a player, casual participant or simply a “FAN” of the game!!
The ultimate goal, of course, is to give you an opportunity to “PlayBetterBaseball” wherever or whenever!!
First off, “Thank You” for your interest here in checking out an exciting new opportunity for those wanting to play Little League Baseball in Richmond. Our goal here is to try to answer every question or concern you may have prior to registering your child anywhere for the 2019 Season.
- “What’s the difference between Richmond Little League and Richmond City Baseball”.
There’s definitely a number of differences between the two….Richmond Little League is affiliated directly with the Province’s Provincial Sport Organization (Baseball BC), while Richmond City Baseball belongs to B.C. Minor Baseball (also known as BC Baseball)…. NOTE: This does get confusing for participants – and as shown in the RCB YouTube video – even for their own existing players, coaches and Executive.
Besides that, LL has some different rules to play by, some direct opportunities to play in Western and National Championships are different, their participant costs are definitely different, (see below), and of course, being able to play in the WORLD RENOWNED Little League World Series would be different… Those are just a few differences…Perhaps one of the MAJOR differences though at the present time – even when measured against other B.C. Minor associations – is Richmond Little League players and many other BC Minor associations have a wide berth of opportunities to play various opponents and enter tournaments, whereas because of the current RCBA’s Executive’s current affiliation to BC Minor Baseball (as their VP), Richmond City Baseball participants are limited in their opportunities to “play as they please”….(Just ask the coaches that have tried to play exhibition games with their 2018 summer teams!!)
If you’d like any further questions answered on that – besides those further answered below in question #5 – please feel free to contact email@example.com and I’ll do my best to explain the difference to the best of my knowledge.
NOTE: While TDC re-established the LL program in Richmond, it got turned over to a newly formed Society known as “Richmond Little League“. This after our TDC group put together a very successful 2017 INAUGURAL Season on behalf of 25 first time players and their families. More information is available on the new groups website at www.richmondlittleleague.ca
2. “What’s the cost to play”?
That’s to be reviewed by the new board of “Richmond Little League” each year, but the plan is to keep it substantially lower than what has historically been offered by others for “Community Baseball”, done partially by capitalizing on one of the world’s biggest “brand names”
