2018 Bat Information
Starting on January 1, 2018, a new bat regulation went into effect across the country. Central Valley will be adopting the new bat policy for our peanut, minor, and little league programs. All bats for these three leagues must have the USA Baseball stamp and cannot exceed a 2 5/8" barrel.
Farm league players can use either the old or new bats. See above information for Pony League for bat info in that age group.

Capital Improvement Plan - CVYBA
CVYBA recently completed the process of becoming a 501c3 non-profit organization. As part of this change, all donations from sponsors and local businesses are now tax-deductible. We are planning a capital improvement project for 2018 and beyond that will hopefully include repairing fences, paving walkways, building an extra batting cage, and adding lights to the fields among other goals. These projects will be expensive and is why we are looking for donations and funding.
If you are interested in making a tax-deductible donation, please contact a CVYB board member and they will get your more information. Thank you for your support.
