NEW FUNDRAISER THIS YEAR
In order to reduce our budget deficit and with the goal to prevent large increases to future registration costs, we have decided to add a cash raffle fundraiser. Participating in this fundraiser is required for all Travel levels as well as Babe Ruth and Majors. Families in other levels are welcome to participate as well though it is not required for Minors, Machine Pitch, Coach Pitch, or T-Ball.
For the required levels and anyone from other levels who choose to participate, they will pay the $100 ticket cost up-front as part of this registration. They can then choose to either keep those 10 raffle tickets for themselves, or sell them to others to essentially reimburse themselves for the cost.
We will be giving away $4000 in the month of July 2024. There are 31 days in July so there will be 31 different opportunities to win through the month. The daily payouts range from $50 through $1000. The drawings will be held once a week with five in total and the results will be broadcast through Facebook and email. For example, we will draw for the first seven days of the month on July 7th, then the next 7 days on July 14th and so on. The 29th, 30th, and 31st will be the largest amounts and those will be drawn on July 31st.
Players/Families will have until the last day of June to turn in the raffle tickets. Raffle tickets can be picked up at Community Baseball Night on Friday, April 26 or from coaches/managers afterwards.
You don't have to be on facebook to keep yourself informed. Check out the facebook feed below for all club communication!
The weather in Wisconsin can be challenging and unpredictable in the springtime! The New Richmond Baseball Club may decide to cancel a practice or game due to weather conditions. As a youth program, we will will always put the safety of the kids first!
Any cancellations will be posted on the NRBC Facebook page. If you do not have FB, you can still access that information on the Facebook widget on the NRBC home page on our website. This is the fastest and easiest way to reach the large amount of families in our program.
Please note that we only post cancellations. NRBC does not post for practices or games to continue as planned. If you do not see a post for a cancellation for your specific league or a post that says ALL of baseball is cancelled, please assume that your team will still practice or play their game as scheduled. PLEASE ALSO NOTE: There are times where we may cancel baseball practice/games for some leagues, but not all. We consider the age level when making cancellation decisions for each league when there is light weather. This consideration is more common for the youngest baseball leagues (T-ball or Coach Pitch) as compared to the older leagues or even the In-House versus Travel Leagues.
If there is inclement weather, the NRBC board of directors monitors the weather considering current conditions and predicted radar over time (rain, thunder storms/lightning, tornado watch, etc.). We strive to make decisions and notify families as early as possible. However, there are times when we do hold off as late as possible if there is a chance the weather conditions would improve and the kids could still play ball. We appreciate your understanding as we do the best we can to ensure safety of the kids.
For the 2024 MBL/MBT seasons, MBL/MBT will allow the use of both USA, USSSA , and BBCOR approved stamped bats in our leagues as well as in tournament play.
