Welcome to the Russiaville Youth Baseball League(RYBL) – great park, great fans, great kids! The Russiaville Youth Baseball League played its first season on the current site (Lions Club Grounds) in 1966. Games are played at one of the best facilities in and around Howard County in Russiaville Indiana. RYBLs Cal Ripken League is a main highlight of the community with its pre-season trademark being an incredible Opening Day parade that takes over (Indiana) 26 with floats, sponsors, Western’s band and 400-plus, small-fry base thieves. Toss in a few roses, and you’d have Pasadena in April. All those associated with RYBL – players, coaches, parents, umpires, sponsors and volunteers – play important roles in making this Cal Ripken league one of the premier leagues in central Indiana.

Fall close up field day is coming in late October after our fall ball season.

It is the League’s express goal that every player will be a better citizen, and have a greater chance for success in future endeavors, as a result of their experiences. As such, the Russiaville Youth Baseball League expects the highest degree of sportsmanship from its members. In keeping with this philosophy, the following Code of Conduct has been adopted to better promote fairness, teamwork, trust, good citizenship, sportsmanship, responsibility, and respect among the members of the Russiaville Youth Baseball League.

2022 Babe Ruth Spring League Information
This spring, there will again be a Russiaville Babe Ruth division for 13-15 year old Western students. Click the Registration Ribbon on the rybl.org home page and select "Babe Ruth 2021" upon signing up/signing in. The registration fee will be $135. We will accept registrations until April 15. After that, players may be allowed to join, only if additional players are needed.
Our teams will enter in the Howard County Babe Ruth league as Russiaville teams. There are two sub-seasons for the season, Spring Season (doubleheaders on Sundays from late April up to Memorial Day Weekend) and Summer Season (games mostly on weekdays after Memorial Day through the end of June). At the conclusion of the Summer Season, All Star players are selected from all the teams in the Howard County Babe Ruth League to form a Howard County All Star team for each age. Regular season games are played at various facilities in the area. Babe Ruth teams that we may compete against are Taylor, Greentown, Peru, Maconaquah, Kokomo, and others. Players will be assigned to a team when the spring season is near. Coaches will evaluate players at practices, rather than tryouts, this winter/spring to select teams with balance. The league accepts players who play on other teams, such as Western school teams or other travel teams.
