What is the Roadrunner Instructional Baseball League? 

The instructional league is the next step for 8-12 year old boys and girls following Roadrunner Tball Smash. Children may choose Tball Smash or Instructional league depending on their interest and skill level. Ideally children will have the concept of how the game works and be able to throw the ball 10-15 metres and catch the ball thrown to them.  

The league will feature optional training for all players on Wednesday nights and parent pitch games on Friday nights. The games will feature 4 Roadrunner teams and focus on playing “real” games of baseball with modified rules and coaching as the games take place.

Roadrunner Little League Team

For the first time ever, we will be entering in a team in Baseball Victoria’s Minor Little Leauge competition.

Players need to nominate whether they want to be considered for this team. Twelve players will be chosen by our coaching staff based on performance and skill level demonstrated in the training sessions leading up to the start of the season. Details of this program include:

  • Training for those wishing to be considered for the Roadrunner Little League team will commence on Wednesday, September 27th, 530pm – 7pm, and will continue throughout the season on Wednesday nights.
  • Home and away games with other clubs on Sunday mornings (most likely 9am game time start) against other clubs in our charter;
  • Our charter consists of Preston, Essendon, Fitzroy, Newport, Werribee (and maybe Doncaster) Baseball Clubs. The good news is that for the far west clubs, it’s typically a 30 minute drive via the Western Ring Road on a Sunday morning – no different than trying to get to Doncaster shopping centre on a Saturday afternoon! J
  • Proper baseball rules – the children will be pitching and hitting according to the proper baseball rules.
  • Length of the season will be similar to the Instructional League.

Please indicate on the club registration system whether or not your child wishes to be considered for the Little League team. Once the team is chosen we will then give out further details of the league schedules and season details.
