GET OFF THE BLEACHERS AND BACK IN THE GAME AT ANY AGE!
How long had it been? Think back. Maybe you played as a kid, or in high school, or college even. Then “life happened.” Marriage, work, kids, coaching. Until it was your time again. The crack of a bat; the smell of freshly mowed grass in the outfield; the pop of the ball in your glove. It lures us all and hooks us. You found it again in Roy Hobbs Baseball. So…hit the relay and pass us on! If you know someone who’s still sitting in the stands, get them back on the field. Tell them Roy has a spot on his roster.
Tim Doboszenski, Manager of the RH World Series Minnesota Bandits 45+ Division gives his take on being a player / manager and shares a quick story.
Is It Like This? Well…almost.

They’re coming! I’m so excited!
RHWS #31 TO OPEN PLAY OCTOBER 20th
Roy Hobbs Baseball received clearance in May to start the 2019 World Series games on Sunday, Oct. 20. Check-in for the 35s division will open on Friday afternoon, Oct. 18 and continue through Saturday.
The World Series will be 5 weeks this year for the first time, with no shortened weeks as was an original possibility. Read more about Veterans week, the Womens Division, our revised Bat Policy, the RH Locker Room, and other news about WS #31.
NO CHANGE IN VETERANS DIVISION AGE GUIDELINES
After talking to several players and taking a survey of the managers in the Veterans Division, it is pretty clear that we should leave the age groups alone at this time. So, Veterans will remain 35+ with up to 5 non-pitchers as young as 30. And, it is still calculated by calendar year.

Some guys have a different view of the Game. If you’re an umpire, and not already one of “Ours”, then the Roy Hobbs Umpire Association (RHUA) might be the place for you!
