Parents...after draft day you can then start expecting contact from your child's coaches. Please give them several days to make contact with everyone.
Introducing Blast Ball 2018 Spring Season
Due to the overwhelming response to introduce Blast Ball into CCBA's league options, we have decided to add it to our 2018 Spring Season. Registration is now open online and it is on it's own form. Please understand that Blast Ball is a non competitive parent involved league. The parents are responsible for being the coaches as well as the umpires. There will be no score kept and no outs kept up with during the game. This is completely a fundamental learning process for these kids. The age group will consist of 3 year olds and 4 year olds who are not age appropriate for T-ball yet. The age date ranges are that they must be 3 years old by January 1, 2018 and kids turning 4 after January 1,2018. All games will be played in Crandall on one of our smaller fields located by Wilson Elementary. Each team will be scheduled to play 6 games for the season and will NOT have an end of season tournament. All games will be scheduled on Saturday mornings and hopefully will all be completed before the hot summer heat really sets in. Each child will receive a trophy at the end of season. The cost to play will be $40 per child which will help cover the cost of equipment needed for Blast Ball as well as trophies and insurance. Each team will be responsible for providing their own uniforms. The league will provide the tee, bats, balls, bases, etc. A link for the rules for Blast Ball is located under the "About" dropt down menu item and then under "Links". Thank you to all of you who participated in our Facebook poll and we look forward to a great season with these little ones!
Our Thoughts & Prayers for a CCBA Family
It is with great sadness and remorse that CCBA announces the passing of one of its own. CCBA has been informed that Andre Larry has passed away. Andre was very active in the CCBA organization as an umpire, a mentor to the children that played baseball, and as a volunteer where he and his family spent countless hours helping with concessions and working fields. Andre loved the game of baseball and tried to help every child that stepped out onto his field have a love for the game as well. Please join CCBA as we send our condolences to Andre’s family and friends and please keep them in your prayers.
We want to give a HUGE Thank You to the following local businesses for helping support us in our raffle at the Christmas Festival!

Some Updated Rules
There have been a few concerns brought to our attention this season of some rules that we needed to address. Here is an update of some rules that we as a board have decided are effective immediately. We will get actual local rules updated and reposted at our earliest convenience but for now this is were these rules are posted.
Tball bats: As long as the bat says Tball and is NOT a big barrel or softball bat, we will allow it. Tball is the only age division that we will allow to use a bat that does not have the thumb print or USSSA stamp on it.
12U & 14U Must Bat Lineup: In the regular season games, we are requiring 12U & 14U to bat their entire lineup each game. This overrides the rules of USSSA where they do not have to do this. CCBSA however will allow you to not bat your entire lineup in each game during the end of season tournament if you wish.
Chalking the Field: Home team is required to chalk the field before each game, unless the field does not need chalking. Therefore, home team coaches should be arriving early enough to each game to allow themselves time to do this before the game is scheduled to begin.
Coaches in Dugouts: This is not a new rule, but one that we have been trying to get everyone to abide by all season with not a whole lot of luck at times. Tball and 8U are allowed 4 coaches in the dugouts / on the field during a game. All other age divisions are only allowed 3. This includes any team moms or anyone that maybe be helping out. ALL coaches / team moms or any adult in the dugout or on the field with the players during a game OR practice must have turned in a background check to CCBSA at the beginning of the season. If you have not done this, you are NOT allowed on the field or in the dugout at any time.
If you have any questions or concerns about the rules concerning your age division, please contact your commissioner. Thank you!
CCBSA would like to send a HUGE thank you to CISD for all their continued support! You are greatly appreciated!
