With a cold winter behind us, a school year with an end in sight, and the plausibility of things turning green again…it can mean only one thing – baseball!
Some facts about Carrollton Boosters baseball:
WE ARE ORGANIZED – As an organization managed entirely by volunteers, we provide a well-run environment that ensures competitiveness, inclusiveness, and fairness. Teams are divided equally and participation is mandated at all levels. My role as commissioner is to oversee coordinators for each league who, in turn, oversee team coaches to ensure these ideals.
WE HAVE KIDS FROM EVERYWHERE – While most team events will take place at either the Riverview facility (behind the zoo on the river) or at Cuccia Byrnes (off Carrollton by Earhart), we draw kids from all over the New Orleans metro area. We do NOT have any geographic restrictions on participation.
WE HAVE A LOT OF PLAYERS – Last year we had 1,000 kids play summer baseball alone. This means a fun but competitive environment and lots of variation in opponents.
WE HAVE EXCEPTIONAL FACILITIES – This past year we installed artificial turf on the 3 primary infields at our Riverview facility. This is in addition to the all-turf Avenger field. As turf drains quickly, the 3pm New Orleans summer shower won’t delay or cancel as many games.
WE HAVE MANY LEAGUES – We have a league for ages 4 – 15 (May 1 cut off) grouped as follows: Each league has a league page where you can access league rules, season schedule and the league blog. Coordinator contact information, and pictures of your league coordinators are available on the Blog page for each league.
Each league is a little different based on age, structure, etc. Please review the league pages for detail on each age group and contact information for league coordinators.
WE HAVE RULES – Kids may only play for their Carrollton team during the season and will be removed if they play on outside teams including non-Carrollton travel teams. This is to ensure fairness and participation.
WE PLAY MOST NIGHTS/DAYS – While we try to avoid playing on Sundays, games can run most nights/or Saturday during the day from late April through mid July.
WE HAVE A GREAT ATMOSHPERE – There is nothing quite like the atmosphere at the park on a warm summer night. A cold beer, a hot dog, and a great game have capped off many long days at work.
WE NEED YOUR HELP – Please consider volunteering to coach or sponsoring your team. Contact me directly if you have questions or need more information. Your involvement is critical to the success of the program. You can sign up to do both in the registration system.
I look forward to a fun season.
