WR Travel Ball Policy

RULES REGARDING TRAVEL BASEBALL

1) If a player leaves the West Raleigh spring rec league, and/or summer all-star program for travel ball prior to completion of his 12-year old year to pursue another baseball option, that player will be welcomed back to the league as a non-guaranteed spot. However, his/her parents will no longer be eligible to serve in a leadership role in the league for either the returning player or any sibling remaining on any WRBA team. For the purposes of this rule, a Leadership role is defined as Board of Directors, Baseball Committee, Head Coach, Assistant Coach and/or Team Parent.

2) Nomination to Summer All-Star teams and Fall Select is considered a reward for competitive play, strong sportsmanship and loyalty/dedication to the West Raleigh organization. As specified in the current All-Star nomination letter, players who accept an all-star invitation must commit, in writing, to not play for a travel baseball program during the given All-Star and Fall Select periods (typically June 1 through mid-November). Similarly, players who leave the West Raleigh baseball program, for a travel organization, prior to completion of their 12 year old year, will be eligible for consideration for league play (as a non-guaranteed spot) but will not be eligible for future consideration for All-Star nomination/play.
