New RCBL Commissioner Jeremy Washington - “I’ve always known the league was something very special and unique. After entering the league in 2015, I realized how important the league is to area baseball. I'm very proud and honored to be affiliated with such an essential, community-based baseball organization. I'm very excited about the future of the league and I look forward to being a contributor to its success.”
Lisa Hart will remain active in the league, heading up the scheduling committee.
Chris Rush, coach of the Montezuma Braves and the previous League Historian was elected as the Vice-Commissioner. Rush brings coaching experience with several teams and is an active league board member.
