18U

For Ages 18 & Under

SCHEDULE & PLAYING SEASON

The baseball season begins in early May, weather permitting. 18U plays two games per week, varying among Tuesday, Thursday, Sunday and sometimes Friday evenings.  Regular season games begin at 6:30 p.m. Coaches usually require their players to arrive 45 minutes earlier for pre-game warm-up. 18U leagues finish the inning that is under way at 8:30 p.m. (if the game hasn’t ended before then).  Coaches try hard to schedule make-up games for those that are rained out.  So, some weeks you may play three games or on unusual nights.  Most teams have at least one scheduled practice during the week, in addition to the two games.

ALL 18U teams will still be playing baseball into July.  The “A” League season will be finished in mid-July.  In the “AA” League, the playoffs will continue through to late July.

TEAM FORMATION

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

We form A teams based on the Play With requests on the registration form, trying to keep Charleswood players on Charleswood-based teams as much as possible.  However, each year, to make teams of equal numbers of players, some A teams also have players from Tuxedo and/or Corydon Baseball, and some Charleswood players are assigned to teams based in one of those other clubs.  We have a policy for A teams that players who are asked to play in Corydon or Tuxedo one year are assigned to a team based in Charleswood the following year.

HIGHLIGHTS

Registration Fee: $235.00 *

Uniforms (jersey, socks, cap) are provided by Charleswood Baseball.   All players must provide their own GRAY baseball pants. CMBA requires a postdated cheque for $50 as a uniform deposit. This cheque will be destroyed upon return of the player’s uniform at the end of the season. Please return your freshly-washed uniform to your coach or team manager immediately after the season.  Cheques will be cashed if clean uniforms are not returned by September 1st.

Divided into “A”, “AA”, and “AAA” levels The “A” and“AA” Leagues play city-wide. Pitch count limits are enforced.  In the A League, players follow a continuous batting order, with unlimited substitutions for fielding positions.  In the AA League, only fielding players bat. There are clear and limited re-entry rules and the use of a DH is allowed.

Equipment required: baseball glove, athletic supporter, helmet, water bottle and GRAY baseball pants.   Although not required, batting gloves and baseball shoes (rubber, plastic or metal cleats)  are highly recommended. Bats are supplied for A League players.   AA League players must supply their own wood bats.  If you’re purchasing your own bat, the max diameter is 2-5/8″ with a -3 rating.

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.
