2023 RTJBL 12u Railriders
RTJBL has two older divisions for rec spring baseball. Our BR 13-15 division and a 16-18 division. We had two BR 13-15 teams this year compete in a Somerset/Hunteron County League. The league consisted of 11 teams from 7 towns. The Rays and the Yankees both had successful regular seasons. The Yankees went on to win the championship by defeating Bridgewater.
Additionally our 16-18 team also played in the Somerset/Hunterdon County Babe Ruth league, and went on to also win the championship in that division.
We thank the managers and coaches of the teams and congratulate the boys on their success.

Readington Tewksbury Junior Baseball League (RTJBL) is a 501(c) (3) tax-exempt, New Jersey non-profit corporation dedicated to providing the children of Readington Township and Tewksbury Township with a safe and structured environment to learn and play the game of baseball. We have 7 levels/divisions of play which are as follows: Little Sluggers, Rookie-1, Rookie-2, Minors, Major 60, Major 70 and Babe Ruth. We are a Co-ed program for children ages 4-18.
The Recreation Season generally runs from mid-April (Opening Day) to the third week of June. Practices usually start in late March, weather permitting. Teams will play regular season schedule, with playoffs and championship games held in our Minors, Major 60, Major 70 & Babe Ruth Divisions. We end the season with our Family Fun Day in mid June.
The Travel Baseball Program's season, whose teams for the 8U-16U age levels are generally selected by try-outs held in mid-October of the fall preceding the upcoming recreation season, is typically from around June 15th to July 31st of each year. Depending on the travel team/manager, travel tournament and/or league play may continue through fall ball programs offered in the region in September through October 31st. For more information on the League’s Travel Program, please go to that section of the web page.
If games or practices on the League’s fields are cancelled due to inclement weather, a email message will be sent to all members, you can also sign up your account to receive text messages.
The League uses a number of fields throughout our Townships. These fields include those at the Railroad Avenue Complex which has two fields that are interchangeable for 60' and 70' usage and one 90’ field and is the primary complex for the League. In addition, two 60’ fields (one of which is interchangeable for 70' usage) are used at the Cornhuskers field complex which is located off Readington Road, a short distance from where it intersects with Route 523. The League also uses another 90’ field behind Readington Middle School as well as 60’ fields at Pickell Park Complex. With the addition of the Tewksbury Township also comes with access to their Oldwick and Tewksbury Fields. Directions to any of these fields can be found by going to the Field Directions section of the web page.
The League is governed by a formal set of By-Laws which can be viewed by downloading as a file attachment from the By-Laws Icon. The primary decision-making body of the League is the Executive Board, which is elected once a year each November. The Executive Board is comprised of the League President, Executive-Vice President of League Operations, Vice President of Administration, Vice President of Facilities, VP of Tournament Baseball and Training, VP of Sponsorship and the VP of Financial Affairs/League Treasurer. The Executive Board is assisted in running the League by the Voting Council which is comprised of all Executive Board Members plus the League Directors for each division, the Registration Chairperson, the Schedule Chairperson, the Snack Stand Chairperson, the Chief of Umpires, the Sponsorship Chairperson, Public Relations Chairperson and Equipment Chairperson. Voting Council positions are annually elected positions or, in the absence of anyone running are appointments by the Executive Board.
Except for July and August where there are no meetings, the League meets the first Wednesday of every month (skipping a few in during the year). usually at the Readington Middle School at 7:30 pm, except for May and June when the meeting starts at 8:00 pm. All are welcomed to attend. The League is always looking for new members and volunteers and the best way to get involved is to attend the monthly League meetings.
