The Rec at RLC bringing back Winter Hitting League

Back by popular demand, the Winter Hitting League is returning to The Rec at Rend Lake College this December to help baseball athletes improve in the off-season.

This year, the league will feature two age divisions: an 8 to 10-year-old division and an 11 to 14-year-old division, with ages based on the 2017 season. The eight-week season requires four-player teams to compete. Each game will last seven innings with a 40 minute time limit. All pitching will be out of a machine.

Athletes will compete during the mornings on Saturday, specifically from 8 a.m. to noon, with no competitions on Christmas Eve. Prizes will be awarded for the first place team.

Students can register now for the Winter Hitting League at $90 per athlete or $340 per team, which includes a T-shirt. Registration will end Friday, Nov. 18 with schedules sent to each player the following week.

For more details or to register, contact O’Daniel at (618) 437-5321, Ext. 7813 or Ext. 1279; or .
