This website is your destination for all things concerning Youth Rec Baseball and Youth Travel Baseball for players thatlive within the Canon-McMillan School District. CMYBA is a volunteer organization that has been in existence since 1952, offering a supervised recreational baseball program for ages 4-14 and a travel baseball program for ages 8-14 to the communities of Canonsburg, Cecil Township and North Strabane Township.
Registration closed on February 17th but some very limited online registration is available for the Pinto(7-8 year olds), Mustang(9-10 year olds) and Pony(13-14 year olds) levels. All other levels are currently filled. One Bronco coach is still needed. Hit the orange register online button above for Pinto, Mustang, Pony and head coach registration.
Head coaches have been selected and notified but we still need one more Bronco head coach. If we cannot find one more the rosters will consist of 14 players each. If anyone is interested in volunteering to be a Bronco head coach please contact Shawn McClory at email@example.com
Team Selection/Draft will now be held on Sunday February 25th at the Cecil Twp Municipal Building Generations Room, only Head Coaches need to attend the Team Selection/Draft. (there was a conflict concern with Rec Basketball on the 24th)

PONY Baseball has voted to change the age determination date from April 30th to August 31st effective Spring 2018. The CMYBA board has decided to start this change at the Shetland level(6 year olds and younger) and let it work its way up over the years. Unfortunately, 14 year old players that will turn 15 before August 31st, 2018 will not be able to tryout for the PONY World Series Team, we cannot change anything that is PONY sanctioned but we are able to control the impact of this change within our organization. All 14 year old players are permitted to play Pony level rec and Pony level travel baseball with CMYBA next season. The 14s are only affected by the new age cut off when trying out for the Pony League World Series team.
2018 Spring Registration
Instructional and Shetland (4, 5 & 6 year olds) Age as of August 31st, 2018 (New Date)
Pinto, Mustang, Bronco and Pony levels (7-14 year olds) Age as of April 30th, 2018 (Old Date)
CMYBA will keep our current bat rules for the 2018 seasons. Players within CMYBA may use the new USA Baseball bats or the old bats that are within our current rules. We would like to see how this new bat standard plays out for 2018 before requiring all of our families to purchase new bats. This will be revisited for 2019.
Instructional, Shetland, Pinto: 2 1/4 inch barrel maximum
Mustang, Bronco, Pony: 2 5/8 inch barrel maximum
2 3/4 inch BATS ARE PROHIBITED AT ALL LEVELS
For the 2018 Season players will be able to use either the old style bats or the new USA Baseball bats. The new USA Baseball bats could be a requirement for the 2019 season, this will be re-evaluated after the 2018 Seasons.
Helmets with facemask are REQUIRED at the Instructional, Shetland and Pinto levels. No player shall be permitted to bat without a helmet with facemask in a practice or a game.
Metal cleats are NOT PERMITTED at Instructional, Shetland, Pinto, Mustang or Bronco levels.
