Stay up to date with news straight from the rcbl staff
“I’m excited to be officially part of the league. I’ve followed the County League since I was a little kid,” Atkins said. “Being part of the oldest amateur baseball league in America, with so much history and good quality baseball, is an honor.”
Atkins is currently the Director of Marketing at Valley Care Management, which has been one of the main sponsors of the RCBL in recent seasons. VCM has provided sponsorship for such initiatives as the Play Ball show and the RCBL Passport.
While Atkins takes over as commissioner, Bocock will remain a part of the league as well. Bocock resigned from his commissioner post in August to accept the head coaching job with the Woodstock River Bandits of the Valley Baseball League. He will still be involved with the RCBL, serving as the league’s historian.
“I wanted to stay attached to the league and also give credit to the people that deserve it by staying as the historian,” Bocock said.
The RCBL Hall of Fame and Museum, which houses memorabilia from the league’s history, is located in the Hall of Fame Sports Grill in Cover Hill.
