2024 Traveling Baseball Teams

Cottage Grove Traveling Baseball

Cottage Grove Baseball offers three levels of Traveling baseball: AAA, AA, and A, with players placed at the appropriate level after annual player evaluations.

Each level of play requires hard work, commitment and desire.  We believe in teaching structure, discipline and baseball fundamentals. Coaches will expect commitment, discipline, desire and effort to improve. Coaches are volunteers at all CGAA levels.

Our goals are to teach players to set goals and work hard to achieve them. We do not try to shelter players from their mistakes, rather we want to teach them to embrace them and figure out what work they need to do to correct them. Baseball is a sport where you are allowed to fail, pick yourself up and try again. Baseball teaches you that mistakes are not failure but rather teaching moments that help you improve.
