On May 19, CVYBA players and families helped the Monaca Legion replace flags on the grave sites of local veterans.   We honor all of those who serve and protect our freedoms this Memorial Day weekend, and especially remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

 Listed below is a chart showing our Central Valley age guidelines for all leagues for fall 2018 and spring 2019.  This is based on the change made by Little League USA a few years ago that we were forced to adopt.

2018 Pony League Information

The CV Pony League will be joining a new league this spring.  The name of the new league is 376 WESTERN PA PONY LEAGUE. The league will be made up of teams from Beaver/Brighton Twp., Blackhawk, Central Valley, Hopewell, Riverside and South Side.  The season is scheduled to begin on/or about May 1st and will consist of 14 regular season games, with playoffs at the end of the regular season. 
 
Here are the league rules.


The bat requirements:

Players can use a Drop 5 (-5) bat that must be stamped with a 1.15 BPF logo, a Drop 3 (-3) bat that must be BBCOR approved or the players can use a new USA Bat with a maximum of Drop 8 (-8) that must be stamped with the "USA Baseball" Stamp.  All Bats are not to exceed 2 5/8” in diameter.

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. 

Here are a few articles that explain the change further:

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.
