RVC Baseball has been around since 1967 when Head Baseball Coach Ed Delaporte started the program. Since that time, RVC Baseball has had many hard working coaches, and has seen many great moments throughout its history. But above all, RVC Baseball has had numerous, quality baseball players play their junior college years here at RVC.

RVC Baseball can offer our Recruits…
We play our home games at the Mulford Campus on our recently improved and perfectly manicured baseball field (built in 2003). Our competition consists of the teams in Region IV, as well as the N4C.
N4C stands for North Central Community College Conference. The N4C consists of seven teams:
Rock Valley College, Joliet Junior College, College of DuPage, Triton College (D1), Madison Area Technical College (D2), Harper College, and Milwaukee Area Technical College.
For conference play, RVC plays each of the six other N4C teams for one double-header on Saturdays, starting at noon.
RVC is one of six Division III baseball programs from the total of 24 Region IV teams.
The differences between the three divisions are as follows:
Division I – Can give free tuition, room & board, and books.
Division II – Can give free tuition.
Division III – Can give no scholarships.
The six Division III teams in Region IV are:
Rock Valley College, Joliet Junior College, College of DuPage, Waubonsee C.C., Harper College and Milwaukee Area Technical College.
These are the only five teams Rock Valley College must play, and need to defeat in the post season regional tournament in order to get to the World Series in Tyler, TX.
However, RVC will still play the other Region IV teams during the season, regardless of division.
