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.
