For those members who still need to do their volunteer duty for the season, there are still shifts that need covering in the concession in May and June.
There is a desperate need to fill some upcoming slots over the next couple weeks!
The duties in the concession will include barbequing, handling cash, food running and food preparation.
Please wear closed toed shoes and bring a warm jacket in case you are on the barbeque!
Do not wait to book your volunteer slot, as toward the end of the season it will become difficult to find available slots. To find a slot just click on DIBS on the top menu bar, select the 2015 Spring Season, and filter by date or category.
If the weather looks unsettled please check the web page for field closure information. Other than on specific days (such as Picture Day) if the fields have been closed the concession will also be closed. If nothing has been posted by 4:00 pm assume that the concession and fields are open.
Association policy on rainouts is that if you have scheduled 2 shifts that have been rained out you can consider your volunteer duty complete.
If you find that you need to cancel a booked shift due to an emergency within the 48 hour non-cancellation period enforced by the web site, please email the email@example.com.
Picture Re-Take Day will be Saturday May 9th
DARBY PHOTOS will be at the park on May 2nd for your team and individual photo shoot.
Please bring your envelope, along with payment if ordering more than the basic free package (cash and credit card only) to the photographer on photo day. All prices include taxes and cheques are not accepted.
Team Coaches will book the photo shoot time slot with DARBY PHOTOS on the widget link sent out to the coaches on April 17th.
Picture Day order forms/envelops will be distributed between April 17th - April 19 before scheduled games at Cloverdale ball park. The remaining teams can have a coach or designate, come by the concession stand and pick up your picture order forms for your teams.
Re-Takes - Darby Photos will be coming to Cloverdale Ball Park at 11:00 on May 9th to set up for anyone needing a re-take or for those who could not make May 2nd picture day. No need to book for this session. It will be first come first serve. With the amount of teams needing re-takes, it should take Darby Photos less than 1/2 hour to shoot all the photos. Please show up as close to 11:00 as possible so your team doesn’t miss this opportunity.
Annually CMBA will grant up to 4 scholarships of $500.00 each to our graduating players.

Once again this year Cloverdale Minor Baseball is hosting the MLB Pitch, Hit and Run Competition.
Pitch, Hit & Run (PHR) invites boys and girls to have fun and demonstrate their skills, competing in pitching, hitting and running skills events. PHR participants can advance through four levels of competition, beginning from the local level, all the way to the 2015 MLB All-Star Game at the Great American Ball Park, Cincinnati, Ohio.
Come and show your baseball skills. This is a free event being held Saturday April 25 from 9:30 AM -11:30 AM, just show up and register at the Ballpark in one of four age groups: 7/8, 9/10, 11/12, 13/14. Age is determined as of July 17, 2015.
The event will be held on Diamond 2 (Hitting ball off of TEE), Diamond 3 (running from 2nd base to home) and Diamond 4 throwing five balls at a target.
Players can win in one or multiple events, and advance to the next level of competition, which will most likely be held at Nat Bailey Stadium in Vancouver.

The Cloverdale Ball Park concession is closed on any days that the park is closed due to bad weather.
If you are scheduled for a volunteer shift on a day that the park has been closed, with a notice posted on this web page by 4:00 PM that the park is closed, then you will have to book a new shift in the concession for a later date (so on days when the weather is questionable, please check the web site before heading to the park for your shift).
In the event that your shift gets rained out twice, we will consider your shift as being completed.
If the rain-out notice has not been posted by 4:00 PM, and you show up for your shift to find that the park is closed, we will consider your shift as complete.
