It is with an abundance of caution that the GVAA Board has decided to suspend all baseball activities until further notice. This includes all practices, training sessions and the opening day parade.
Given the risks posed by the COVID-19 virus and the expert prediction of continuing rapid community transmission, we believe that temporary social distancing along with other safety measures is the best approach for protecting the health and well-being of our players, coaches and families.
We are closely monitoring this fluid situation and available information from governing authorities and experts. We look forward to seeing you all on the fields soon. We’ll communicate new dates for the resumption of baseball in the weeks ahead as we gain clarity on local impact of the virus and more direction from health experts.
Thank you for your understanding and support of this decision. Please feel free to reach out to any of our board members if you have any questions or concerns.

USABat Stamp of Approval
Cal Ripken Baseball in conjunction with USA Baseball has implemented bat rules that must be enforced at all levels in both our GVAA Rec and Travel programs.
These bats are designed to act like wood bats and they must have a USABat Stamp of Approval to be legal for play.
TEE BALL BAT RULES:
Beginning January 1, 2018, participating National Member Organizations will adopt the USABat standard for youth baseball and tee ball bats. Unlike standard youth baseball bats, tee ball bats (lengths 26” and shorter) are not required to undergo lab testing to receive approval under the USABat Program.
However, to be approved for play within the participating National Member Organizations, tee ball bats must feature the USA Baseball mark and accompanying permanent text which reads:
ONLY FOR USE WITH APPROVED TEE BALLS
