Our monthly meeting will be August 21 from 7:00pm - 8:30pm. It will be at the Crandall/Combine community center. We will have our yearly board elections at this time. There will not be a meeting at this time, just elections. Please come out and vote. Thank you
Changes in Upcoming Elections
After careful consideration the CCBA Board has voted to postpone its upcoming elections until September 2018. We have spoken to legal counsel as well as the police and agree this is the best decision for the league and this investigation. This action, similar to the one recently taken by the Crandall Athletics Booster club was done for the following reasons:
First, with the recent accusations against a now former board member, we wish the remainder of the baseball season and final tournament to be completed without the drama of a potentially tumultuous election that could take away from the fun for the kids.
Second, the board wishes to allow enough time for the initial investigation into the allegations to be completed. These allegations against the former board member are serious and the board needs to remain in tact in order to fully cooperate with the pending investigation.
Finally, the board wants the potential incoming board members to be able to focus on what they should, the upcoming baseball season, and not the drama of the mud slinging and accusations. We recognize that the expectations put on the board members are quite demanding and do not want to make it even more taxing.
Please remember that the board members are all parents of players or are volunteers, who have spent a considerable amount of time to try to make the baseball experience better for the kids. We ask that you be patient and bear with us while the facts of the situation are investigated. As a board, we are committed to allowing the unbiased professionals to investigate the facts and not pander to rumors and unsubstantiated accusations on social media.
10U & 12U Brackets on Facebook
The 10U & 12U Tournament brackets have been posted in our Facebook page. We are having some technical difficulties with uploading them to our website right now so they are currently only on Facebook. We are working on getting this fixed so we can have them here as well. We are working on the other brackets and will have them posted as soon as possible.

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!
