It’s Time For Fall Ball!

          Schedules are now up for the 2023 fall session of River Valley Baseball.  As you will see, play begins the day after Labor Day.  We have instituted a rules change this season, which will govern the length of the games:
          PAL Ball (machine pitch) is still one hour and ten minutes hard time.  Likewise, 8u is still one hour and thirty minutes hard time.  All divisions above 8u, which were previously one hour and forty-five minutes, have changed to one hour and forty minutes, with no new inning beginning after one hour and thirty minutes.
          As always, please respect the park rules at BMAC and model good sportsmanship for our young people.  Thank you for choosing BMAC and River Valley Baseball – community baseball at its finest!
