Summer Ball / All Stars
CMB offers a Summer Baseball (All Stars) program following the completion of the spring season for Minors, Majors, Intermediate, Juniors & Seniors. Players are selected on a try-out basis with the season starting in late June and finishing the first weekend in August. All players are encouraged to consider summer baseball and if there is enough interest, we can enter multiple teams at each level.
The all-star season is a wonderful experience and CMB would like you to know the commitment that is required from the players and parents. The summer baseball program is more competitive and is structured differently than spring house league. Unlike the regular season where the focus is on giving every child an opportunity to play every position, coaches/managers will set the batting line-up and place players in field positions they feel will give them the competitive advantage. The minimum requirement for playing time is different than the regular season with players required to play only 3 defensive outs and bat once per game (except minors where all the kids bat). Coaches will still be expected to ensure that all players are developing baseball skills and having personal successes, but a strong commitment from both parents and players will be expected.
In some divisions we may look to combine with other leagues if we don't have enough interest for our own teams. Players will be evaluated at tryouts with coaching staff and CMB members. Summer baseball team tryouts will be held at the beginning of June.
Registration will open May 1, 2019 - Cost will be $250.
Information session May 5, 2019 at the Spray Lakes Multi-Purpose Room 6pm
