In 2012, the CBL will be implementing a new bat restriction for the boys High School league. Players must use a bat that has a BBCOR stamp or use a wood bat. This season the CBL will be providing one BBCOR bat to each high school league team to help facilitate the transition to this requirement. No other leagues will have any new bat restrictions.

Baseball lessons by Centerville Varsity Baseball Coach Dickten:
Lessons will be offered on Saturdays from 8:00 AM till 1:00 PM. The cost is $20.00 for one hour sessions. There will usually be no more than four participants in a group. Lessons are being offered to those in 3rd through 8th grades.
Facilities will include Booster Park ( the high school field), CHS Baseball barn, batting cages and bullpens (weather permitting). The hitting barn is heated, but boys should bring sweatshirts. Parents are welcome to stay and watch the instruction taking place.
If you are interested in signing your son up for baseball instruction, you can email coach Dickten directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. In the email, include your sons name, phone number, current grade in school and his baseball experience.
The CBL Select program offers a great opportunity for aspiring players to play under the best coaches in the community. We offer great tournament opportunities, with one of our teams traveling to Cooperstown, NY every year to play in a week long tournament.
