Well, that was quick… our first official Fall Ball season is over. We had a lot of fun scrimmaging, playing games and refining skills. It was exciting to see both experienced and new players come together and give this program a try. On week 3, players wore gold sweatbands to raise awareness for Childhood Cancer, which we were honored to support. This formally concludes our on-field activities for 2021, and we are already looking forward to 2022!
CBA partnered with Chaska VFW and Rotary Club to host “Burger Night” the third Wednesday of each month. October 20th is costume night! Have your player(s) dress in costume (baseball uniforms are acceptable) and be entered into a drawing for CBA merchandise! We will also have treat bags available for kids (first come, first served).
Our Annual Membership Meeting is scheduled for 2-6pm Saturday, 10/16 at the Hazeltine Clubhouse. CBA members are welcome to join as we recap the 2021 season, plan for 2022 and vote in new board members. We continue to seek new board members, specifically for Concessions and Youth League Directors. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to get involved.
Did you or a family member help with concessions at the MN State Amateur Baseball Tournament in August? Your efforts helped CBA raise a lot of funds through its concessions operation! The Chaska Cubs are graciously hosting a Pig Roast Party this Saturday as a thank you to our volunteers.
CBA hosted its inaugural Golf Scramble at Bluff Creek last month. Despite some early rain, all 11 teams had a blast! Look for this event to return next year with the possibility of a slightly different date/time. A huge thanks to Chris Carlson for organizing and to our sponsors Schram Brewery, Cuzzy’s, Golf Zone, Chaska Cubs, Aruba and Plate restaurant.
In May, Chaska hosted a Pitch, Hit & Run event in partnership with MLB. At that time, we awarded local winners (by age group) for softball and baseball. We are so excited to share our very own Matthew Swanson was selected to participate in the State competition at Target Field on 9/11. Not only did he participate, but he also WON the 7-8 age group. On behalf of Chaska Baseball, congratulations Matthew on a job well done!!!
