Central plays mainly on Lindstrom and Magazine Beach Fields

Lindstrom (next to Morse School) and Magazine Beach Fields

Tryouts/Level Assessment
There will be no large tryout due to Covid 19 for Minors/Majors players.  New players will be assigned to a team practice where they will be evaluated by a coach.  We will assign new players to teams as they are evaluated.  Central will continue to be flexible and work with parents to find the best level and situation for each player. 

Equipment
We’re asking every player at every level to bring their own glove, helmet and bat to each session.  We understand that purchasing equipment for growing kids can be expensive.  The league has a limited number of brand new basic helmets that we are selling at a reduced fee ($10).  The league also has a limited number of league bats and helmets that we are tagging and sanitizing which will be available to loan out for the entire season.  Please respond to this email if you are interested in either of those options.  Also, please don’t worry if you don’t have a helmet or bat for your first session, there will be plenty of drills to be done other than hitting.   If you are interested in purchasing/borrowing, or have questions about equipment please fill out our Equipment Survey

Majors/Minors Information

Preseason Practice Schedule April 10-May 1
We're asking coaches to follow the weekly game schedule meaning majors will practice either Tuesday or Friday while minors teams will practice on Monday, Wednesday, or Thursday.  In addition to the weekday practice, each team has the option to hold additional practices on Saturdays and/or Sundays.  Actual practice times will be set by the coaches
    
Game Rule Modifications

  • Umpires will be positioned at least 6 feet behind the pitcher.
  • We will use a double base at 1st base for extra distancing and to avoid collisions
  • Tagging is allowed, but we will play “ball beats runner”

  • *Minors Only* - option to not play with a catcher and using a pitching target with net instead

​​​​​​​Please Note: Due to the ongoing pandemic, there will be changes to many aspects of the baseball experience from limited spectating, mandatory mask wearing, and no dugouts to keep social distance to possible games rules modifications.  While our goal is to run a normal as possible season, we appreciate your patience and understanding in regards to these changes.

 

You can find our preliminary field rules in the document below.  We are continuing to work with the city and our members to refine these rules.
