Pinto Player Evaluations

The Pinto Baseball League is holding evaluations on March 2nd for new players who are entering the league. This will be for first time Pinto players only!! The time span will be from 5:30 to 7pm @ The Power Alley located at 6105 Factory Road, Unit B, Crystal Lake, IL. They will be evaluated on throwing, fielding/catching and batting. They will need to bring their helmet, bats and gloves to the evaluation. Please be sure that your player is registered prior to the evaluation and noted as a first year Pinto player on the registration form.

Maplewood School

Dear Cary Grove Youth Baseball & Softball families,

As many of you are already aware, District 26 has entered a purchase agreement to sell Maplewood School. We knew this day would come, but that does not make the news any easier to handle. Baseball and softball games have been played on the fields at Maplewood School since 1953. Many of us are, no doubt, reminiscing about opening days, parades, games won and lost, being present on so many weekends with members of our community, and watching our children grow up.

Many of you most likely have questions about the future. What will happen next year? Where will our children play? The Cary Grove Youth Baseball and Softball Board of Directors has been planning for this eventuality since Maplewood School closed its doors. The Board has carefully planned for future seasons and evaluated the need for playing fields in our community. We remain dedicated to ensuring Cary Grove Youth Baseball and Softball remains a vibrant and integral part of our community.

Together, we will move forward.

We will continue to share information about future plans with you, our families and players.

Thank you for your continued support.

-The Cary Grove Youth Baseball and Softball Board of Directors
