How long do we have to register?

What is the skills evaluation and draft?

The skills evaluation and draft are for players ages 9 and up. Players participate in pitching, hitting, and running exercises while coaches observe. After the skills evaluation coaches participate in the draft (just like in major league baseball), where they take turns choosing players for their teams. This is done to help fairly distribute skill levels throughout the league. Back to top


When is the skills evaluation and draft?

The skills evaluation and draft takes place a week or two after registration closes. In 2022 the skills evaluation and draft is expected to be in late March. Check back for more information. Back to top


What divisions participate in the skills evaluation and draft?

Players new to the minors (ages 9-10), majors (ages 11-12), and seniors (ages 13-16) divisions participate in the skills evaluation and draft. Players who wish to be reassigned to a new team will also participate in the skills evaluation and draft. Back to top


Will players be on the same team as last year?

Previously a redraft was done every year for divisions Minors and above (9 years old and above). This year all players staying in the same division will remain on their 2021 team unless they request during the registration process to be redrafted. What this means is if you were league age 9 last year and in minors and will be league age 10 in 2022 you will not need to attend skills eval. Same goes for majors and juniors/seniors. If you were league age 10 in 2021 and will move from minors to majors you will need to attend skills eval and be drafted to a team.

Will T-ball and machine pitch players be on the same team as last year?

T-ball and Machine Pitch teams will be done with continuity in mind. What this means is the only way that you will move to a new team is if your age requires you to move from T-ball to machine pitch or machine pitch to minors.  During the registration process if you wish to move teams there is a place to annotate that. In T-ball and Machine Pitch we will still allow for teammate or coach requests but only if they are input during the registration process. As always we will do our best to accommodate. After March 1st NO REQUESTS WILL BE HONORED. Back to top


What happens if my player is moving divisions?

Players moving from t-ball to machine pitch will be blind drafted to a team. We will do our best to accommodate teammate and coach requests.

Players moving from machine pitch to minors, minors to majors, or majors to seniors will participate in the skills evaluation and draft. No teammate or coach requests allowed. Players with a sibling in the same division will be placed on the same team as well as players whose parent is a coach or assistant coach. Back to top


What if my player is new to the league?

New players in t-ball (ages 4-6) and machine pitch (ages 6-8) will be blind drafted to a team. New players in minors (ages 9-10), majors (ages 11-12), and seniors (ages 13-16) will attend the skills evaluation and then be drafted onto a team. Back to top

Machine Pitch- $115

What does my registration fee pay for?

Registration fees help the league to operate but do not cover all of the league cost. Sponsorships and fundraising are vital to our success.
-Uniforms 
-Equipment such as balls, catchers gear, gear bags that need replaced and team bats. We upgrade as needed and try to add new as we can.
-Umpires for the games cost anywhere from $50-$100 per game depending on division. 
-Field maintenance which includes someone to prep fields before every game and clean them up after every game. 
-Infield dirt which needs added every other year on a rotation to fields.
-Maintenance equipment such as chalk and paint for lines, rakes, hoses, drags, nets and any other equipment needed that year. 

CYB pays for and maintains all the fields at Field of Dreams and Washington Park. The city only provides actual building maintenance and the sprinkler system maintenance on the fields.

How do I become a sponsor?

We also have other sponsorship options such as field banner sponsor and facility banner sponsor where you can have a banner with your company's name displayed on one of our fields or in our indoor practice facility.
