Age Cutoff Date

CGYBS Baseball ages for Mustang, Bronco, and Pony are determined by age as of May 1st. 

Starting this season and continuing over the next ~7 seasons, we are transitioning from May 1st to Sept 1st eligibility date.

CGYBS will be phasing in this process, starting with 7 year olds this 2020 season, and moving to 8 year olds in 2021, 9 year olds in 2022, and so on.

Many baseball programs across the country are implementing a similar age cutoff in an attempt to have players compete and play with their peers in their same grade.

For this season (2020), any player that will be 7 years old on Sept 1st should be enrolled in Pinto.
