Pitching Clinics for All Kid Pitch Players
Baseball Positive will be running two pitching clinics for RUGLL players 8 years old and up. Any registered player who like to pitch (or might want to) in any of the kid-pitch divisions (89ers and up) is strongly encouraged to attend one of these two sessions. Kids will learn proper pitching mechanics and how to throw a changeup and cutter fastball.
Please plan on a parent or older sibling attending with your child to be his/her catcher (this person needs to be able to catch well to maximize your child's experience). If you are bringing two kids to particpate, plan on bringing two catchers as well, or you'll have to alternate, which means fewer reps for your kids.
Clinics will be at Maple Leaf Playfield on:
Thursday, March 15th @ 5pm
Thursday, March 22nd @ 5pm
Sponsorship Opportunites to Promote Your Business
In 2018, for the first time in many years, RUG Little League is reinstituting a sponsorship program. We are looking for local businesses to sponsor the league and possibly an individual team. Several levels of sponsorship are available from $350 to $1200, with each level offering different incentives including business banners hung at games, RUGLL sweatshirts for all the players on a team with your business logo prominent on the back, and more. Check out your options at this link.
All team sponsors will also receive a plaque with a photograph of the sponsored team to hang in your place of business.

For 75 years, Little League® has established a proud, rich history in the hearts and minds of generations of Little Leaguers. Since its founding in 1939, Little League has nurtured the human spirit, and that is why it has been universally successful in cities and towns throughout the world.
RUG (Roosevelt-University-Greenlake) Little League was originally chartered in the 1950s. Since that time thousands of boys and girls have been taught how to play baseball and experienced the joy of competition on the baseball diamond. Neighborhood demographics have changed over the years but the boundaries and mission of RUG remain the same.
Our goal is to provide a strong foundation of fundamental baseball skills in a team environment that will ultimately result in success on the field and enjoyment of the sport. Our coaching program is designed to provide consistent teaching methods for players aged 4-18. As a player progresses from tee ball, through coach pitch and on into kid pitch they will hear the same teaching points on how to develop their swing, field and throw a baseball. When players hear the same message(s) from a variety of coaches at all levels of play they are better able to develop a skill-set that will consistently bring success on the field of play.
