Support the Chaska 12u Baseball Bash!
You have likely seen/heard about the opportunity for CBA's 12u travel teams to participate in an "away-tournament" at this age. This year, two teams are going to the SlumpBuster in Omaha, NE and one team is attending the Cal Ripken Experience in Pigeon Forge, TN. Previous CBA teams have also traveled to Cooperstown, NY. Fundraising is a critical component of being able to provide this opportunity to players, and fundraising is player/parent-driven.

The 12u teams are hosting the "12u Baseball Bash" at Dahlgreen Golf Club on Friday, 4/14. This event has been customary for several years as the "big fundraising event". These families would greatly appreciate your support/attendance at this event. This presents a good opportunity to connect and socialize with baseball parents prior to the start of the season.

Please contact by 4/10 to purchase. Venmo, cash, or check accepted.

REGISTER NOW: Pitch, Hit, Run Competition Present by MLB:
Chaska Baseball has another amazing opportunity to host a Pitch, Hit and Run competition in partnership with Major League Baseball! This is a completely free event open to all 7 to 14-year-olds in Chaska and neighboring communities and will take place Friday, May 26th at 5pm. Volunteers will be needed to assist with this event. Watch for an upcoming email with DIBs to claim!

Program Description:
Major League Baseball Pitch, Hit & Run (PHR) events provide boys and girls an opportunity to showcase their baseball and softball skills, with the opportunity of earning a chance to attend and compete for a Championship during the 2023 MLB World Series! 

Approved local events give youth organizations an opportunity to provide a free and high-quality experience for their participants. Even more, by hosting, they expand their programs, while building a strong relationship with MLB, MiLB, and its partners. 

The Pitch, Hit & Run program is a free event series for boys and girls, and consists of a series of movements that are important in baseball and softball. Participants will compete in either 7-8, 9-10, 11-12, or 13-14 age division, with the Age Cut-off set on November 15, 2023. They will be tested, and their measurements will be recorded for points. Based on their scores, they will advance from a local event to a Team Championship and then to the National Finals hosted at the World Series. 


ATTN Chaska Umpires:
We will be offering another umpire training session in late April. Details on date and location will be sent in a separate email from our Umpire director. Watch for that communication later this month.
