2022-23 Changes

The CBCA will no longer hold showcase or series events.


After my work on them for close to 30 years, the reasons for this position are obvious.

We've had a long run of great years where we have had great players, great coaches, and scouts both collegiate and professional attend the events.

I cannot in good conscience continue with the hope those days return.

The last five years or longer have shown that college coaches are going elsewhere to see players.

Players are going elsewhere as the number of conflicting events continue to increase.

We cannot fight the changing times any longer.


We started our free events so that kids who couldn't afford the pay showcases could perform in front of scouts.  The scouts have gone....to Arizona, PBR, Team USA and numerous other games.

The NCAA is limiting dates that college coaches can leave campus, thus cramming events into the same windows.

We will now emphasize awards for players and coaches in the CBCA.


For example, two years ago, we started honoring  seniors whose leadership in their baseball program was exemplary.

This year, we added the beginnings of an ALL STATE award. We honored 18 member school players who had outstanding seasons.

Next year, we will add both coach and player of the Year awards by school size.

We will continue the Hall of Fame Awards...I'm just not sure how to present the awards.

We will, hopefully, resume the NorCal clinics.

If you have any ideas for other type of awards, please contact me.


Membership dues will be slashed in half ($20). Hopefully, that and the award programs will spur more coaches to join the CBCA.

We have gone from over 350 members, ten years ago, to about 130 in 2022.

Thank you for your support of High School baseball in California.
