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.

Sponsors making a difference
RYBL is a non-profit 501c3 organization and we depend on business leaders and community partners for supplemental financial support in order to offer the children of RYBL the finest youth sports experience in central Indiana. If you have an interest in helping our league, we want to partner with you. If your business is ready to join our team, then let us tell you how to make that happen.

The facility has been closed up for the winter. Check back for spring volunteer field dates. We are looking for volunteers to assist the buildings and grounds director on a regular basis for the 2019 season.
