2020 12U World Series team volunteers at the Wish Project
The 12U Cal Ripken World Series Team spent the morning of February 1 giving back to our community at the Wish Project. The boys bagged up donations and put together 100 BITS Bags, geared to help prevent developmental delays in infant and toddlers.
Please consider the Wish Project in North Chelmsford when making donations. The boys could not bag more since they ran out of supplies while there.
A statement from the Wish Project: Our greatest needs at this time are new shower curtain liners/rings, cookie sheets, toasters, electric heaters, cooking utensils, wash cloths, mens gloves, and any shoes/coats.
We are also currently working on our next project, BITS bags, meant for infants and toddlers to help prevent developmental delay in at risk families. We help prevent developmental delay by providing families with basic infant toys to encourage interaction and play. These bags consist of new rubber ducks, bubbles, chalk, beach balls, board books, crayons/coloring book and an infant toy. Our goal is to give out over 800 of these bags to early intervention agencies and caseworkers for their clients. The deadline for this project is 3/28 and all items need to be new. These items are readily available at dollar stores.

There are more than 200 volunteers who manage, coach and make up the League’s Executive Board. Many of these volunteers were Youth Baseball players themselves who are happily “giving something back.” Who benefits? – The community and the more than 700 Chelmsford children who’ve shown that they, too, love to “play ball!”
Chelmsford Youth Baseball Funding:
CYB receives no town funding. The League maintains many of the baseball fields in town, relying on registration, donations & fundraising to cover equipment, field maintenance and other operating expenses. The league conducts registrations in the fall/winter in order to generate the necessary funds to repair fields, purchase player equipment and make capital improvements. All of these things must take place before the start of the season.
ANNOUNCES REGISTRATION FOR LEARN TO PLAY & INSTRUCTIONAL DIVISIONS
Are you interested in having your son or daughter play baseball this spring? There is still time to sign up for either the Learn to Play or Instructional leagues. Both programs will teach your child the basic skills to play baseball, and also offer “schedule certainty” for your busy lives!
Learn to Play: This division is designed for 4 year old children interested in learning to play baseball.
Players will meet once a week on Sunday for 90 minutes.
The focus will be on learning baseball fundamentals such as throwing, catching, fielding and hitting.
The season will run 8 weeks starting at the end of April at Roberts Field and ends with a “field day” in June at the Route 110 Fields.
Instructional Divison: Formerly called our “tee ball division”, Instructional league is for players who are 5 years of age. This league is geared toward building an understanding of the fundamentals of baseball including proper batting, throwing, and fielding techniques. We use a clinic based training structure which offers multiple exposures to techniques while keeping the players engaged.
Players will meet twice a week – one weekday and once on Saturdays
Schedule certainty – each team will meet on the same weekday, and during one of three time slots on Saturday. We will also make a best effort to minimize conflicts with other sport schedules.
We use our best efforts to accommodate requests for players who need to play with other children for transportation purposes.
