What to know for RLL Player Evaluations

Player Evaluations for the 2021 Season are scheduled for Saturday March 13th 2021 at the Ridgefield Outdoor Recreation Complex (RORC).

The Evaluations are only for players in the Minor & Major divisions for Baseball and Softball ONLY.

This year, players evaluations will be held for NEW players to these divisions (Minor & Major), and players new to RLL and did NOT evaluate with RLL last season before the shutdown caused by COVID-19.

If your player did a RLL 2020 Evaluation in ANY Minor or Major division, they DO NOT need to evaluate this season.

This does not include the Pee-Wee AA division Evaluation held last season. If your player was registered to the Pee-Wee division last year, and this year is registered in the Minor Division, they player will need to attend evaluations on Saturday March 13th, 2021.

Tee-Ball and Pee-Wee division players DO NOT need to evaluate.

EVALUATIONS ARE NOT A TRYOUT TO MAKE ANY TEAM, ALL PLAYERS WILL BE PLACED ON A TEAM. THEY ARE SIMPLY A GAUGE OF SCORING THE CURRENT SKILLSET OF PLAYERS TO ALLOW RLL AND COACHES DRAFT AND COMPILE EVENLY MATCHED TEAMS. PLEASE ENCOURAGE YOUR PLAYER TO BE EXCITED, TO GIVE 100%, AND HAVE FUN!
