The Reds Rookie Success League (RRSL), a free, coed, character-building summer baseball program, enters its tenth summer in Cincinnati and throughout Reds Country in June. The Reds Rookie Success League is an introductory baseball program for boys and girls, ages 6-12. It features baseball instruction while focusing on a character-based curriculum and the "Six Stars of Success" - Cooperation, Integrity, Respect, Education, Determination and Spirit (CI REDS). Programs will run two days a week for four weeks in Cincinnati, Fairfield, Batavia and Dayton, and for six weeks in Louisville. Each program features visits from Reds players and coaches, or from Dayton Dragons or Louisville Bats personnel.
The original Cincinnati league will return to Schmidt Fields, located in Cincinnati's East End neighborhood. In Fairfield, the Reds Rookie Success League of Butler County, co-hosted by the Joe Nuxhall Character Education Fund, begins its seventh season at Waterworks Park. In Louisville, two programs will be featured in May, June and July - a daytime program at Wyandotte Park which returns for its sixth year and the second evening Reds Rookie Success League program which takes place at Petersburg Park at Newburg Community Center. 2013 also marks the fifth year of the Reds Rookie Success League of Dayton at Action Sports Center. The Reds Rookie Success League of Clermont County will host second year of the program in 2013 and will be held at the Batavia Township Community Center.
