CARROLLTON BASEBALL

2019 BASEBALL PROGRAM

The Carrollton Boosters baseball program is a recreational intramural program for boys aged 4–15 as of April 30, 2019, and girls age 4 as of April 30, 2019. Registered players are placed in one of the following leagues according to date of birth:

4-year old Boys & Girls mixed T-Ball
5-6 Boys Baseball
7-8 Boys Baseball
9-10 Boys Baseball
11-12 Boys Baseball
13-15 Boys Baseball


All players are drafted onto teams, then play a schedule of games beginning in late April or early May. It is expected that the regular season will end in June or early July, with playoffs in older leagues (7-8 and up) extending into mid-July, ending on or before Saturday, July 13.  Games are played at Carrollton’s Riverview fields on the Fly, behind the Audubon Zoo.  13-15 year old boys play on Avenger Field, and should be finished before July 4.

Coaches will schedule practices after the teams are drafted. Practices may be at locations other than where the games are played.

Players will be issued a team shirt and cap, to be worn at all games. They will need an appropriately sized glove, plus either cleats (preferable) or tennis shoes.

For more information regarding the baseball program, contact:

REGISTRATION
To register, go to our website, www.carrolltonboosters.org, and log in to your Carrollton registration account. Note that if you have not registered for a Carrollton Boosters program since last summer’s baseball season, you will need to create a new registration account in our new registration system, powered by Blue Sombrero. The fee is $185 for your first child, plus $160 for each additional child. You may pay on line by credit or debit card, or you may choose the option to send a check, but note that your registration is not considered complete until fees are paid. Players who are not registered will not be graded or drafted onto teams.

Contact Alan Godchaux at [email protected] for help with registration or for payment assistance.

GRADING
All players, except for the 4’s and 5-6’s, must be graded. Grading will begin as early as March 31, although the 13-15 league generally grades later.  Players in graded leagues need to be registered before the start of their league’s grading in order to be assured a spot in the league.  Consult our web site in March for the detailed grading schedule.

All players, including those in the beginner leagues, are assigned to teams through a player draft.  By registering your child, you agree to having him or her placed in the player draft, during which any of our volunteer coaches may pick him or her onto a team.  Carrollton Boosters does not guarantee placement of any player onto any particular team, or onto a team with any particular other player(s).  The only exceptions are that coaches get to pick their own children, and that siblings are placed on the same team, unless otherwise requested by their parent/guardian.  After players have been drafted onto a team, registration fees will not be refunded or credited, except in cases of illness or injury.

SPECIAL NOTE REGARDING PARTICIPATION IN NON-CARROLLTON BASEBALL PROGRAMS, LEAGUES OR TEAMS
Parents/guardians should make note of Rule 6 of the rules for all players in the Carrollton Boosters Baseball Handbook before registering their children for baseball.  Rule 6 reads as follows:

“Because there is a potential for disruptive conflicts and insufficient rest and recuperation, players in the 7/8, 9/10 and 11/12 baseball recreational leagues may not participate in non-Carrollton Baseball programs, leagues or on non–Carrollton Baseball teams during our Spring/Summer baseball season.”

Please refer any questions about this rule to Justin Lemaire at [email protected]

COACHES 
Coaching is an excellent way to not only develop a greater appreciation for baseball, but to also form a special bond with your son or daughter as the season progresses. If you are interested in being a coach, simply answer “yes” to the question when registering, then also register yourself as a volunteer coach, and we will contact you.

SPONSORSHIPS
Please also consider sponsoring your child’s team. As a sponsor, you get to pick the team’s colors and name, and may include a business logo as well. The tax-deductible fee is $275 and can be paid with your child’s registration by credit card or can be paid later by a separate check or credit card. Answer “yes” to the sponsor question when registering your child.  Later, after you have completed the registration, please return to our web site and click on the sponsor form link in order to submit your sponsor info or, if you prefer, simply e-mail your info to us as per below. Your sponsorship will be attached to your child’s team unless you specify otherwise. If you have any questions, please contact Missy McLellan at [email protected]

DONATIONS
When registering, please also consider making a tax-deductible contribution to our Capital Fund. Contributions to this fund are used for continued additions and improvements to our fields and facilities.

2019 BASEBALL GRADING

Players must be registered in order to grade.

FAQ:

What will happen at grading? The boys will be lined up for basic fielding and batting drills so that coaches and the league coordinators may assess skills. The boys should play to the best of their ability.

How long will it take? Potentially, a long time. Each of the kids will be put through the grading process individually. All of the coaches and coordinators will be there for EVERY grading session. Please be patient. The process has proven over time to create more evenly matched teams and a better baseball experience over the course of the summer.

I'm not a coach. Do I have to stay the whole time? No.  In fact, once your child has completed grading, we ask that you please leave the field so that the other boys can be graded.  That doesn't mean you have to leave the park, however.  The concession stand will be open, so feel free to hang around the park and visit with friends if you like.

Any tips on saving time?  The line is first come, first served and every child that shows will be graded.  The Sunday session may take 4+ hours, and some have found success in years past by arriving significantly later on Sunday and getting at the back of the diminishing line.  Be careful, though:  Once there are no more kids in line grading is over for the day. 

What should I bring? All kids should bring their gloves and a baseball cap. If your son has a batting helmet of his own he may bring it, but he must have his equipment with him in the line. As noted, the concession stand will be open for all sessions.  Lawn chairs and patience wouldn’t hurt either. We will supply a selection of bats…WE CANNOT ALLOW 100+ KIDS TO STAND IN LINE WITH BATS. This is a safety issue and there will be no exceptions.

What shouldn’t I bring? Do NOT bring your son’s own BAT, and please do not bring BATTING GLOVES or anything else that will slow the process. Sorry, no exceptions and failure to comply will force us to put kids to the back of the line.

What should the boys wear? Comfortable clothes for baseball, and cleats if you have them.  Also, don’t forget a baseball cap.

Will there be a make-up? We may schedule limited make-up grading sessions if needed.  Please do not count on there being make-up sessions, and attend one the regularly scheduled grading sessions if at all possible.  At this time we do not yet have a date set for the potential make-up session(s).

I have two children in the league. Will they be on the same team? Yes, brothers are drafted together and assigned to the same team unless it is specifically requested that they NOT be put together.

My son has a favorite coach or friends with whom he would like to be paired. How do I handle this? Carrollton leagues are graded and drafted. We cannot consider or honor these requests.

May I show up at any grading day?  Yes, you may show up at any grading day.  You only need to go to one session.

I have friends or family members who haven't signed their kids up.  Is it too late?  No, but time is short!  We will continue to accept registrations at least until all grading sessions (including the make-up session, if held) are complete.

When will I be informed of team assignments? Teams will be drafted within two weeks after grading. You will get an initial contact from your head coach shortly after the draft. We look forward to a great season and an organized grading.

When will we practice? Practice frequency, location, and days are entirely up to the coach and will vary.

When will I get a schedule? The schedule will not be provided until all drafts are completed.

When will the league start, how long will it last, on what days of the week will we play? The first games this year will likely take place around the week April 23. We could play any day of the week with Sundays likely only in case of rainouts. Most of the graded leagues will continue past July 4th, with the latter stages of the playoffs wrapping up by mid-July. The 13-15 league andpossibly the youngest, non-competitive leagues should end by July 4.

I have other questions.  To whom should I address them? The league coordinators for each age group are listed on the league pages of the website. Also, as the Commissioner of Baseball, I am happy to address any questions or concerns.
