Have you registered your Son or Daughter for Corinth Area Baseball? If so, this is what comes next:
1. If your child is 7U - 18U AND they are NOT on a Coaches' protected list then they will need to show up for their Skills Evaluation/Draft on August 10 at DBAT Denton or Corinth Baseball Fields (location to be determined later). If your child is unable to attend the Draft-that's ok! If they are not present then they will be randomly placed on a team.
The Draft Day Schedule can be viewed here: TBA
2. Practices start the week of August 12th. Teams will not know their specific practice times until Coaches select them on August 10th at the Draft.
3. You should be contacted by your Child's Coach by August 11th via email or phone. If not, please inform CAB and we will assist.
4. Fall Season games will start in late August or after Labor Day weekend. Yes, we know that this is the beginning of the school year but we need to start games to ensure we have enough time for games and playoffs-thank you in advance for your understanding!
Misc. Questions and Answers:
-I signed up to Volunteer as a Team Mom or Asst. Coach, what do I need to do now? Please visit the "Apply to Coach" under the Information Tab and complete Step 3 for the Volunteer Background Check.

CAB recreational baseball age divisions are based on USSSA age guidelines. A player's age as of May 1, 2020, is the age division that a player is eligible to play in the Fall 2019/2020 season.
Please use this link to calculate your child's eligible age group for the Season 2020 (8/1/2019-7/31/2020) season:
|BLASTBALL||Competition Ages 3-4|
|5U T-BALL||Competition Age 5|
|6U T-BALL||Competition Age 6|
|7U COACH PITCH||Competition Age 7|
|8U COACH PITCH||Competition Age 8|
|9U||Competition Age 9|
|10U||Competition Age 10|
|11U||Competition Age 11|
|12U||Competition Age 12|
|13U||Competition Age 13|
|14U||Competition Age 14|
|15U||Competition Age 15|
|16U||Competition Age 16|
For those age divisions that do not have enough participants to maintain "age pure" league play, that age division could be combined with another age division, such as 13U/14U. Players in any age division are eligible to register for an older age division, one year older. If a player wants to play in an age division two years older, their parents must submit a completed Play-Up Request Form.
In the Fall seasons, it is common to combine 5&6U, 7&8U, 9&10U, 11&12U, 13&14U and 15-18U. In the Spring seasons, it is common to combine 9&10U, 11&12U, 13&14U and 15-18U.
Players are NOT allowed to play in a younger age division, unless the player has a documented physical or mental disability. Parents of players needing to play in a younger age division will be required to complete an Age Waiver Request form.
