Teams may add up to one additional regular season tournament if approved by the Baseball Directors and at least 75% of the team votes and agrees to it. If a team adds an additional tournament, the entry/gate fee will be in addition to the registration fees above and the responsibility of the team and each of the players to cover. In addition, if a team earns a berth to a State Tournament (MYAS, MBT, MSF) and the team decides to participate, the entry/gate fee will be in addition to the registration fees above and the responsibility of the team and each of the players to cover. The entry/gate fee to each State Tournament has historically been approximately $50 per player.

 

 

Traveling Baseball League Information:

 

CDAA traveling teams play in the Gopher State Baseball League. Teams typically play a 16 game schedule. Approximately half the games will be in Champlin/Dayton and the other half will be played at other cities in the league. In the past, other cities have included Andover, Anoka, Blaine, Brooklyn Park, Elk River and Maple Grove. A limited number of games may be further away. Games are generally on weekday nights and most weeks will have two games, however there may be times when games are played on weekends. CDAA traveling teams generally play three to four tournaments during the summer, in addition to State Tournaments in the event they qualify. Practices begin in mid-March and the season starts in early May and ends late July. Generally there is one “AAA” and one “AA” team for each age level.

 

 

Traveling Baseball Tryouts:

 

Players signing up to play in the traveling league must attend tryouts. There is a non-refundable tryout fee ($30) that everyone will pay at time of registration. Tryouts are scheduled to be held February 25, 2017 at the Pitch 2 Pitch facility in Rogers. Tryouts will not conflict with AH School districts spring break. Updated information regarding traveling baseball tryouts will be posted here if anything changes. Please check back for any updates.


The schedule for tryouts located at Pitch 2 Pitch in Rogers is as follows:

Team Selection:

 

Traveling evaluations will be conducted by individuals from Pitch 2 Pitch. Players will be scored on categories of fielding (infield and outfield), hitting, throwing (including pitching) and running. These scores along with previous statistics/information from the previous season will then be used to formulate teams.

Team formation at the traveling level is ultimately decided by the Baseball Director and Coach. The goal is to select the best 12 players to make up the team taking into consideration special circumstances such as pitchers and catchers. Therefore the 12 highest scoring individuals will not necessarily be the AAA team.

All players who register for traveling and go through the tryout process must realize that if they are assigned to a team they must participate on that team.

Once teams have been developed, there will be no trading of players unless authorized by the Baseball Director.

 

 

Other Information:

 

Preseason Clinics
There will be optional preseason clinics at the Pitch 2 Pitch facility in Rogers for both Traveling and House leagues. See the Clinics/Pitch 2 Pitch page for additional information and how to register.

 

Parent Informational Meeting

There will be a parent informational meeting (February 23rd, 7-8pm) in the South Lecture Hall at Champlin Park High School.  The meeting is designed to help answer any questions about tryouts, team formation, leagues, games, tournaments, costs, etc. If you have questions please feel free to send an email to baseball@cdaasports.org.
