CGBA In-House Baseball
Dear In-House Baseball Families,
Cassi and I would like to thank all of you for your patience and understanding during the past month while we have waited to make a decision on this year’s baseball season. On Sunday, May 17th the CGAA Baseball Board held a special meeting to determine how this year’s baseball season will proceed. After much deliberation, the Board has voted to suspend this year’s In-House Baseball season indefinitely. We did not feel it was possible to offer a season that could both follow the Governor’s Task Force recommendations for social distancing and small group gatherings while at the same time provide our players with a quality baseball season. Please know this was not a decision we took lightly, and we understand how disappointing it is for our players and their families.
We will begin the process of refunding In-House registration fees during the coming week. Players will be refunded the cost of registration less the SportsEngine processing fee and CGAA player fee of $10. This fee is to cover fixed costs including rent of the YSB where our equipment is stored, annual audits, insurance, and utility costs. The standard player fee for all CGAA players is $15, however, the Baseball Board has voted to reduce this to $10 for our In-House Baseball Players and cover the remaining $5 from our accounts. A separate email was recently sent out with a message from CGAA’s president, Dan Harrison, explaining this fee in greater detail. Dan is currently requesting any questions or feedback regarding this player fee be sent to him directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you all for your understanding and acceptance of this tough decision. We hope to see you all practicing in your backyards this summer so we can be back in full force next spring!
Sarah and Cassi

Wee Tees is a program offered to 4 year old children to provide them with the basics of the game of baseball. The program is held typically held on four Saturdays in the month of June. Participants will be provided with jerseys.
We have 2 levels of T-ball offered during the week in our program: Instructional (5 year olds) and Traditional (6 year olds).
Instructional T-ball (Mondays and Wednesdays) is an introduction to the game for 5 year olds. Players learn positions and the general concept of the game. Score is not emphasized.
Traditional T-ball (Tuesdays and Thursdays) is for 6 year olds and is step two in moving towards "real" baseball. Score is kept and is a step in preparing players for the Pitchball league.
Pitchball (offered either Monday and Wednesday as American League or on Tuesday's and Thursday's as National League) is the next step in the baseball education. It involves hitting balls pitched by coaches. Players rotate through all positions and learn the fun of hitting the ball and running the bases. We have an end of the year tournament to show off their skills they learned throughout the season.
Pee Wees (offered either Monday and Wednesday as the American League or Tuesday and Thursday as the National League) introduces the aspect of kids pitching to kids. It also begins to introduce and strenghten all other phases of the game. We have an end of the year tournament to show off their new skills developed throughout the season.
Minors (offered on Mondays/Wednesdays only) - is our final in-house stage of baseball training. It adds in all the phases of the game in order to prepare the players for the next step of baseball. This league also has an end of the year tournament.
We have baseball opportunities for all our young men in these age groups through traveling baseball teams. We try to equally spread out the boys on teams made up of players registering in the spring and any who were not placed on a team from fall tryouts.
