Miracle League of Blaine

We are working with the Miracle League of Blaine to provide some buddies to their players, and possibly coaches. This is a great way for our #CRALLballers to give back to the community.

The Miracle League believes in providing opportunities for children between the ages of 3-21 with disabilities, to play Miracle League baseball, regardless of ability. Please share this link with anyone that you feel might want to play baseball:

Head Coaches - Register Now

To continuously improve our program and get a head start on the 2018 season, we have started the recruiting process for Head Coaches. The goal is to have a longer than needed list of interested coaches in place as early as possible, rather than trying to find them at the last minute in the spring.

We have been very fortunate to have had so many great individuals step up over the years and offer their time and talent to help in this regard. However, we do often come up short. We will need about 65 Head Coaches for the upcoming season.  Thanks to those who have already stepped up, but we still need more volunteers.    

Our program’s mission is to develop the baseball skills suited for each division of play while providing a positive team experience for all who participate, regardless of their individual skill level. Winning is secondary to player development, equal opportunity in games and promoting a love for the game.

We need those individuals who share in, and will embrace these principles as Head Coaches in our program.  If you are at all interested in being a Head Coach for the 2018 season, please go to the link below and complete the 2018 Volunteer Form.

If you have ever thought about becoming a head coach in the program and need more detailed information in order to move forward, we encourage you to attend the next Coaches Meeting that will be held at Andover Lanes on March 7th at 8pm.

Those who applied for a Head Coach position by January 31st, (whether they become a head coach or not) were entered in a drawing for 25 Concession Stand Treat Tickets ($50 value). Two winners were drawn.

Congratulations to Eric Gieseke and Mike Peterson, our winners of the drawing!

Important Note: Completing the application form does not commit you to, or guarantee you will get a team.


2018 Coach/Volunteer Registration

We are now accepting applications for coaches & volunteers for the 2018 season. All applications must be submitted online.


Coaches Meetings @ Andover Lanes

If you have coached in the past or have interest in coaching for the 2018 season, you're welcome to attend the coaches meetings at Andover Lanes.
 
These meetings are typically informal and don't follow a strict agenda.  We will have many members from the CRALL board to answer any questions you may have about coaching or the league in general.
 
If you want to talk some baseball or find out more information out about our league, please join us at a coaches meeting.
 

Coaches Meetings:

  • Mar 7th (8pm - All Coaches)

Concession Stand Managers Needed

CRALL is looking for volunteers to serve as Concession Stand Managers this year. Stand Managers are responsible for running the stand, cooking the hot food, advising the other parents who are helping that day, and so on.

Our goal to have enough managers to have each person work one shift per week. Each shift will ideally last 3-4 hours.

Stand Managers are essential in keeping our players and spectators happy. Anyone interested in helping out should complete the Coach/Volunteer Registration.
