Another spring season is coming to a close and we are excited about this upcoming Saturday which is full of different baseball festivities. This event is *FREE* to CMBA players and families!!!
9am-10am - Rally Cap
All Blastball and T-Ball players are invited to participate in the year-end Rally Cap session on Diamond #5. These players will be able to test their skills to see how they've progressed throughout the season.
10am-12pm - Fun Day
All CMBA players and sibling are invited to join in the many different activities that will be taking place around the park. From bouncy castles to baseball activities where kids can earn themselves treats and prizes. It's like a mini-carnival and lots of fun!
Fun Day will have events and attractions such as:
12pm-1pm - Awards Ceremony
Come out and see the awards presented to the winners of our Tadpole & Mosquito playoffs as well as the other awards like Most-Improved-Player. We'll also be presenting the provincial championship banner to our 2018 Midget College Prep team. Come on out and show your support.
2pm - Tadpole & Mosquito All-Star Games
The top 2nd players from Tadpole (D3) and Mosquito (D4) will take to the field in what should be some of the best spring baseball all season.
**PARKING NOTE** - As the park will be very busy on Fun Day, we have rented the gravel school field for overflow parking, entrance is at the far west end of the school.
Cloverdale Minor Baseball is very proud of our grassroots program for umpire development. Our UIC, Gord McFarlane, recently wrote an Op Ed piece that was featured in the Vancouver Sun. Gord, thank you and Sheridan, for the work you have put into our umpire development program in Cloverdale.
Let us all remember that our umpires are learning and trying to improve and that we need to support them as they develop. It is very difficult to play the game if there are no officials there to call the balls & strikes and safes & outs.
There are still dibs needing to be filled up till June 27th to complete your dibs requirement for 2019. If you haven't signed up for a volunteer shift yet, time is running out as volunteer deposit cheques will be cashed at the end of June for anyone who has failed to complete their volunteer duty.
If you are unsure if you still need to do a volunteer shift please check your account, as all DIBS sessions up to June 9th (and all coaches credits) have been marked as completed on the online booking system. If you are coaching a team and do not see a credit for it on your account, please check with your division coordinator to ensure that your name was included on the list passed to the volunteer coordinator for credit.
If you do need to sign up for a volunteer shift, please do so under DIBS at www.cloverdalebaseball.com/dib_sessions.
If you are wondering what you have to do in the Concession, it involves general duties which may include cash handling, grilling on the barbeque, food prep, deep frying and cleaning. Please don't wear good clothing, and closed toe shoes are a requirement. You must be over the age of 16 to volunteer in the concession!
The concession is a vital part of our association, which helps to keep everyone's fees down by paying for all of the umpires for games in Cloverdale Ball Park, so it is important to have it up and operating at full capacity during the season.
Congratulations to Cloverdale Spurs Pee Wee player Coy Bain on advancing to the 2019 Pitch, Hit, Run Seattle Mariners Team Championships at T-Mobile park on Sunday June 23, 2019.
Coy advanced by winning the PHR sectionals in Saanich on June 1.
Well done Coy and best of luck in Seattle!

Cloverdale Minor Baseball is embarking on a Sponsorship Program in order to raise revenue necessary to continue upgrades to our facilities and programs. This is a rewards based program that allows every one of our player families to participate in the Sponsorship program and earn rewards for doing so! All of us know people in our community that own or operate a business and would be willing to become a Sponsor Partner with CMBA. Please find enclosed details of our new Sponsorship Program and how you can earn rewards for forwarding this information onto people who you know in the Community.
As many of our members are aware, Cloverdale Minor Baseball has bid on and has won the right to host the Pee Wee AAA Western Nationals in August of 2019. This is an important event for our Association and we would like to show the country that our reputation for hosting great events is well deserved!
We are looking for volunteers from our membership to sit on an organizing committee that will plan and execute this prestigious event! Every member, no matter your player's division, is welcome and valued by the Western Committee. If you are able to assist please forward your name and e mail address to Cam Gair at email@example.com and we will include you in future meetings.
Thank you in advance from Cloverdale Minor Baseball!
Cloverdale Minor Baseball is excited to announce that our Association has been awarded the right to host the 2019 13U Pee Wee Western Nationals at Cloverdale Ball Park.
Eight of the top 13U Pee Wee AAA teams in the country will travel to our home field to vie for the title in mid August of 2019. CMBA has a long history of hosting great tournaments and we are proud to have been selected to add the Western Nationals to our list of accomplishments.
CMBA would like to thank Baseball BC, the Western Canadian Baseball Association, Baseball Canada and the City of Surrey for their valuable assistance in the creation of this event.
Watch this space for more details as they become available!
Dear Sports Association Representative,
Due to the ongoing hot and dry weather, city parks have reached a point in which the danger of fire is critically high. Many of the fires in BC have apparently been started by discarded cigarettes.
Smoking is prohibited in all Surrey Parks including all sportfields, open spaces, paths, driveways and parking lots and is subject to a $200 fine per occurrence (Park By-law #13480).
Your co-operation in this matter is compulsory. By-law Enforcement will be patrolling City Parks for compliance. If individuals are ticketed for smoking, who can be linked to a team and league; facility use permits may be immediately revoked, in order to better protect public property.
Athletic Services Coordinator
