18U

Ages 18 & Under

OVERVIEW

The AA-League is like adult baseball.  Only the 9 fielding players bat. There are limited and clear re-entry rules for fielding players who have left the game.  A designated hitter is used.  Players must use wooden bats, and must purchase their own bats. Game length, however, is 7 innings.

The A-League uses a continuous batting order, where all players on the team bat in order whether or not they are playing in the field.  There is unlimited substitution at all fielding positions.  Players use aluminum bats.  Game length is 7 innings.

SCHEDULE

The baseball season begins in very late April, weather permitting.  Teams play 2 games per week.  Evening games begin at 6:30 p.m., and typically finish after 8:30 p.m.  Afternoon games begin at 2:00 p.m.  Coaches require their players to arrive earlier for pre-game warm-ups.  Games do get rained out, and coaches need to schedule make-up games.  So, some weeks you may play three games or on unusual nights.

The A-League plays city-wide.  Game days are Tuesday, Thursday, Friday (rarely), or Sunday evenings, and Saturday or Sunday afternoons in early May.  Expect at least 1 additional practice per week for A-League teams.

TEAM FORMATION

Charleswood, Tuxedo, and Corydon Baseball combine to form one AA-League team at each age level.  An additional fee is charged to try out for the AA team.

The convenors from the 3 clubs form A-League teams based on the Play With requests on the registration form, and with the goal of forming teams of about equal ability level.  Our clubs usually have enough players for 1 or 2 A-League teams.

Equipment You Need to Provide

  • baseball glove
  • batting helmet
  • athletic supporter
  • GREY baseball pants
  • water bottle labelled with the player’s name
  • (18U-AA ONLY) Players must provide their own wooden bats

Although not required, batting gloves and baseball shoes (can have rubber, plastic, or metal cleats) are highly recommended.

CMBA POLICIES

 

 

CMBA CODES OF CONDUCT

CMBA Codes of Conduct for Players, Coaches and Parents describe the kinds of behavior we expect from our athletes and their parents.  In simplest terms this is responsible, respectful and sportsmanlike conduct with regard to teammates, coaches, opposing players, umpires, and fans. Controlling one’s own behavior and representing CMBA with class and decorum are clear expectations. Your coaches will all have signed these pledges, and will ask players and parents to also sign their Codes of Conduct as teams are formed.

* CMBA Registration Fees include the per-player fees charged by WSMBA, Baseball Manitoba, Baseball Canada, and the City of Winnipeg. With the remainder, CMBA pays for team equipment, jerseys, caps, socks, field maintenance, umpires and the cost of the indoor pre-season assessment. Midget players also experience greater costs for field maintenance because they use Charleswood Place, the only full-sized diamonds in the Charleswood area.
