Updated Baseball Bat Rules - PLEASE READ

CAA Baseball Families:

Recently, Metro Baseball League (MBL) and Metro Baseball Tournaments (MBT) issued revised bat rules for the upcoming 2018 baseball season.  As MBL governs league play for our 12, 13, 14, and 15 year old metro teams and MBT governs tournament play for our 9, 10, and 11 year old tournament teams, the MBL and MBT bat rules impact CAA Baseball bat rules.

The purpose of this email is to provide clarity regarding CAA bat rules for the 2018 season and tryouts/evaluations for 2018 team selection.  This set of bat rules impacts all CAA Community, Tournament, and Metro Teams ages 9-15 for league and MBT tournament play.  In other words, in order to try out and play as a member of CAA baseball in 2018 you will need to use a bat that complies with the following standards:

NEW UPDATE FROM MBL ON USA BASEBALL APPROVED BATS

Bat restrictions:  9U-14U: All bats must have the new USA stamp (unless using a -3 BBCOR bat or wood bat). 15’s can use a BBCOR bat or wood bat.

9-U, 10-U, 11-U,
12-U, 13-U

Bats must be 2 1/4" with unlimited weight differential or bats 2 5/8" and have a -11 differential or less meaning -10, -9 etc. NOT -12, -13, etc. (i.e. 31” – 20.0 oz.)

Volunteers needed for BB/SB storage relocation

CAA Baseball and Softball is moving their equipment to a different location and we could use your help.  The P2P storage facility is closing in a couple short weeks.  We need to move our equipment to a new facility.

Volunteer spots are posted to the volunteer opportunities page.  These volunteer hours apply to the 2018 season

This is a physical volunteer opportunity which will require heavy lifting, disassymbly and assymbly of heavy shelving. 

The BB/SB sport committee was notified of this facility closing only a short week ago.  Since then, we have searched for and selected a good new location for our equipment.  This entire project is short notice to us all, we are all parent volunteers in this association, thank you in advance for your support and understanding of this significant change to our operations.

Contact Shawn Cameron at 612-860-6811 for more information about the volunteer activity
