Congrats to the Central Valley 1st and 2nd place teams for our 2018 in-house season!
Peanut League Champion - Monaca Legion

Minor League Champion - Maier Heating and Cooling
Minor League Runner-Up - Dan Lyons Cabinets
Little League Champion - Sullivan Painting
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.
Sponsorship info and opportunities for the 2018 season can be found HERE on our sponsorship page.
2018 Pony League Information
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.
