« Back
September 24, 2009 - LOVES PARK, Ill. – The Rockford RiverHawks’ season may be over, but there’s still baseball left to be played at Road Ranger Stadium.

For the third straight year, the RiverHawks are hosting a high-school fall baseball league. Twenty teams, totaling 300 players, play every Sunday from sunup until sundown. Some of the area teams competing against each other include Harlem, Jefferson, Auburn and Boylan.

Games are played every Sunday and the fall season runs 12 weeks from September through October.

“We want to see more baseball played throughout our region,” RiverHawks director of operations Chris Daleo said. “Opening our stadium for this event is a winning situation for everyone.”

The RiverHawks also announced the first of three round robin tournaments will be played this Saturday at Road Ranger Stadium. The RiverHawks Round-Robin Classic will have four teams competing for the top prize. This week, Hampshire, Barlett, Fox Valley and Lake Zurich will take the field.

“The RiverHawks are consistently providing avenues that allow kids to play more baseball,” Daleo said. “We have hosted summer tournaments and now we are branching out into the fall months. As long as the weather permits, our field is open for kids to play baseball.”

The RiverHawks are members of the Northern League, an eight-team independent professional baseball league that will play its 18th season in 2010. Advertising and ticket information is available by calling (815) 885-2255. Games are broadcast live on ESPN 1380 (WTJK-AM) and the internet.
