We have scheduled evaluations for the 2020 CCYB Rebels team for Sunday, August 25 at 4:00 at Rideout Playground.
Our plan for spring, 2020 is to field teams at the 9U (3rd grade), 10U (4th grade), 11U (5th grade) and 12U (6th grade) levels. This would represent the most number of teams Rebels has fielded, and we hope to involve as many Concord and Carlisle families as possible.
For those not familiar with Rebels, it was founded in 2016 and serves as a Concord-Carlisle club baseball program run in conjunction with Route 2 Athletics of Arlington. The program is coached by former CCHS Head Coach Chris Aufiero.
The goals of the program are:
1. Community: A club-level baseball experience with classmates and peers
2. Coaching: Professional coaches who prioritize skill development and love of baseball over "win at all costs"
3. Competition: Play elite programs from surrounding towns including teams in the New England Elite Baseball League
4. Convenience: First-class program at a reasonable cost with limited travel to practices and games
5. CCHS: Build a strong feeder program to develop an elite high school baseball program

Congratulations to our U12 Bay State Team, who won Gold at Trophy Weekend, August 3-4.
Your Concord Carlisle U12 Bay State All Star Team took home an Upper Division, Round 2, Gold Trophy this past weekend after wins over Newton and Cambridge towns of 85K and 113K respectively.
In the semi-finals, the team received a dominating pitching performance from Luke Waldeck who struck out 13 hitters over four innings of work. After falling behind 2-0 the Concord-Carlisle boys battled back for a late inning 5-4 victory. Down 2-1 in the top of the fifth inning, center fielder and lead off hitter Douglas Fortier single handedly turned the game's momentum after catching a ball in center and making a laser beam throw to home plate and catcher Phil McCoy, thus stranding a runner at third base. In the bottom half of the inning, Concord-Carlisle exploded for four runs, starting with Callen Beveridge’s leadoff hit and capped by Connor Nairus hammering home the fifth run and what turned out to be the game winning run. The game ended with a spectacular diving catch from left fielder Jack Doty who fired a one hop throw to first baseman Connor Nairus for a double play with the tying run on base.
That cardiac win set up a Championship showdown with Cambridge, a perennial powerhouse in Bay State play and the overall #2 seeded team. Once again our boys of summer fell behind early, this time 4-0, setting the stage for another drama filled afternoon and evening. After plating three runs in the third, and closing the gap to one run, pitcher Bear Tibbitt closed the door on Cambridge, retiring them in order in both the third and fourth innings. Now down a run in the top of the sixth, the last inning of play, and with two runners in scoring position, Gunnar Lyons singled down the right field line driving in two runs to tie the game. The game then moved to the bottom of the sixth where Cambridge’s lead off hitter walked and quickly made his way to third base. With no one out and the winning run on third base, Chris Sim, made two fantastic plays in right field, followed by absolute frozen rope throws to Phil McCoy at home plate, leaving the runner stranded at third base. Now with two outs, Gunnar Lyons struck out Cambridge’s lead off hitter looking to end the inning. Into extra innings the game went, when Auggie Lee-Kovach executed a text-book aggressive secondary lead and began taking third base as Chris Sim hit a ball softly up the middle. As the situation developed before our eyes, much like a script in a Hollywood Movie, the short stop fielded the ball and fired home, but Auggie never broke stride, rounded third, and scored what turned out to be the game-winning run on a close play at the plate. With two outs in the bottom of the seventh, Luke Waldeck made a spectacular play up the middle and to his left, and fired to first for the final out of the game.
Concord finished Bay State play with a 13 and 7 record equaling 10th place overall out of 37 Boston area teams. This incredible season was capped by two total team wins and a Round 2, Upper Division, Gold Trophy!
