Hello Blue Sox parents,

I hope you are enjoying your season and all is going well. We have received several questions regarding Blue Sox travel baseball for next year. 

We wanted to communicate with all regarding travel baseball for 2019 season. We have been informed that some teams have elected to leave Manchester Baseball and go as an independent team. With that said we wanted all of you to know that we would love for all players to stay within the Manchester Baseball family.

We will be holding tryouts from (8U - 18U) in July of 2018 for all teams. Our goal is to continue to grow the travel program.

Over the next few years we are looking to make Manchester Baseball the premiere baseball choice within the Rec and Travel community. 

If you are interested in staying with Manchester Baseball or even interested in being a coach please let us know. Please don't hesitate to ask any questions. 

Thank you,
Steve and Rob
Manchester Baseball Travel Coordinators 

Background Checks

Effective Immediately (Spring 2016 & All Future Program Seasons/Sessions): All volunteers (coaches, assistant coaches and team parents) representing a Carroll County Recreation and Parks sponsored Recreation Council is required to have a background check and must be cleared prior to starting the season.  No background check, no volunteerism allowed.  Once you have completed your background check immediately forward a picture, with name, position, and council information to ccrecvolunteer@ccg.carr.org.  This will allow them to create your photo volunteer ID, which MUST be worn at ALL times while volunteering.  If you are not wearing your id you will not be allowed on to volunteer.  Completed ID's will be mailed to the address on the completed background check. 

For all information about the “Carroll County Department Of Recreation And Parks Volunteer Background Check Program”, go to:
