News and Announcements
CMBA is excited to announce the 2019 Bantam AAA and Midget AAA coaches!
Jason and Andrews and Joe Marklund will be joining us to run our Bantam AAA team. Both bring a wealth of experience and knowledge and we are excited to have them work with our team and program. They will be joined by Brandon Marklund (Professional Pitcher currently playing in Australia)once his season is done.
Josh Crozier will head up our Midget AAA team. CMBA is excited to have Josh back coaching after taking a year off coaching last season. Josh last headed up our Bantam AA team a couple years ago and is excited to take the AAA Midget team this coming season. Assistant coaches to be determined.
Bantam AAA tryouts will begin this weekend as the coaches want to get an initial look at the players before the new year; however, it is recognized this is short notice and there will be a minimum of two more open tryouts in the new year.
