All players are drafted onto teams, then play a schedule of games beginning in late April or early May. It is expected that the season will end on or before Saturday, July 18, although some leagues will end sooner. Most games are at Carrollton’s Riverview fields on the Butterfly, behind the Audubon Zoo. Older boys play on Avenger Field.
Coaches will schedule practices after the teams are drafted. Practices may be at locations other than where the games are played.
Players will be issued a team shirt and cap or visor, to be worn at all games. They will need an appropriately sized glove, plus either cleats (preferable) or tennis shoes.

To register, click on the registration tab and follow the procedure. The fee is $185 for your first child, plus $160 for each additional child. If registering more than one child, be sure to register all children before checking out. You may pay on line by credit card or you may choose the option to send a check, but note that your registration is not considered complete until fees are paid. Players who are not registered will not be graded or drafted onto teams.
Contact Alan Godchaux at email@example.com for help with registration or for payment assistance.
All players, except for the 4’s and 5-6’s, must be graded. Grading will begin as early as March 29 for boys, and as early as April 12 for girls. Consult our web site in March for the detailed grading schedule.
Grading for Boys 13 and older will begin in late April or early May.
Coaching is an excellent way to not only develop a greater appreciation for baseball or softball, but to also form a special bond with your son or daughter as the season progresses. If you are interested in being a coach, simply answer “yes” to the question when registering, then also register yourself as a volunteer coach, and we will contact you.
Please also consider sponsoring your child’s team. As a sponsor, you get to pick the team’s colors and name, and may include a business logo as well. The tax-deductible fee is $275 and can be paid with your child’s registration by credit card or can be paid by a separate check. Answer “yes” to the sponsor question when registering your child. Later, after you have completed the registration, please return to our web site and click on the sponsor form link in order to submit your sponsor info or, if you prefer, simply e-mail your info to us as per below. Your sponsorship will be attached to your child’s team unless you specify otherwise. If you have any questions, please contact:
Boys’ leagues, including mixed 4’s: Rini Marcus 261-0119 or firstname.lastname@example.org
When registering, please also consider making a tax-deductible contribution to one or more of the following funds:

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.
