We are very pleased to announce that the Chanhassen Athletic Association Baseball Season is about to take off. After one of the worst winters in Minnesota, we are happy to feel the hint of temperatures high enough to melt snow.
With that said, the first sign of the baseball season is almost upon us, the in-house baseball draft. This day brings excitement to households throughout our cities. "What team am I on?", "who are my teammates?", "who is my coach?" are all questions that our son's ask time and time again.
We will be holding the draft on Tuesday, April 8th at the Chanhassen American Legion and the teams will be announced as soon as possible afterwards.
As many of you know, we have combined the 10/11's into two Divisions of the Major's this year as we have with the 11/12 in years past. The two Divisions will be the Blue Division and the Gold Division. These divisions, Blue Division and the Gold Division will be filled with players of "like" skill levels. The 9 year old's will continue to be in the Minor's.
As we have mentioned and covered at the Parent Meeting earlier in February, our goal is to continue to develop our boys baseball skills and give all an opportunity to grow and learn more about baseball while still having fun with their teammates and friends.
While no system will please everyone, the Baseball Operation Committee, BOC, has worked very hard to make sure that the best interest of boys are our Number 1 concern. Our boy's day one try-out scores in March got them into these divisions.
The Blue Division will include the boys that are on the 11 AAA and AA Tournament Teams as well as the boys on the 10 AAA and AA Tournament Teams as well as 12 boys that choose not to play Tournament ball. There is a total of 6 teams of 12 players.
The Gold Division will include both 11 A and 10 A Tournament Teams and the balance of the in-house players. The Gold Division will have a total of 8 teams with 12 players on each team.
The 9 year olds will have 8 teams that will have either 11 or 12 players.
The Age Coordinators have been in touch with the volunteers coaches (2 per team for the draft) that will coach and an additional volunteer coach will be added after the draft to help inspire, develop and teach our boys the game of baseball.
As we move forward, we ask that you support your coaches, your son's teammates and fellow parents in cheering on our boys into a summer of baseball will be both fun and a learning experience.
