Congratulations to all of the 2019 Crystal Coast Wood Bat World Series Champions and a big, big shout out to all of the players in the event who embraced the challenge of playing with a wood bat. This is how the Game was intended to be played and all of you brought a TON of excitement across all of the fields this year. I want to close by saying I have been part of many tournaments and games and this years#ccwbwssits a top of the list. It has been a long time since I had the opportunity to get out and make presentations on Sunday. And, when I was on field 3 at Swinson Park with the 10U EC Tribe & Dirtbags their energy & class made me miss all of the families and players that I coached and traveled with. Thanks to all of you for your Sportsmanship and for playing#realbaseballat the#crystalcoast/ - Donnie

Good Afternoon to All of You,

We have a dedicated team in place at the Crystal Coast that’s made up our Baseball Ops, Parks & Recreation, local leagues and high school baseball teams. Together, we are “all hands on deck” & always 100% committed to all of your teams and to the event itself.

We are preparing for mostly sunny conditions with a chance of “scattered” Thunderstorms as can be expected this time of year. It does not look to be a “full” rain event.

As we get ready, you can help us keep your team and others updated in a timely manner. When you hold your calls and texts it allows our team to work and to communicate more efficiently. This is crucial in keeping the website, schedule and messaging app up to date.

We encourage all of you to share with your team and to take advantage of the messaging app by “clicking” on your team name in the Pool Play listing and look for “notifications” It is 100% FREE, and you can unsubscribe when the event is completed.


  1. Check the message app and the website when you awake, throughout the day and at lights-out.
  2. If you have rain at your park and should your game be stopped a coach from your team should check with the Site Director. Often enough with “scattered” Thunderstorms if a delay is necessary it can be short term.
  3. Each park is different, and delays can be longer. If any delay has your team leave the park check the messaging app & website for updates.
  4. If you wake up to rain and you have not be notified of any changes be at the park 1 hour prior to your first game and prepare to play.

Updates and Alerts are important to All Participants and we thank you in advance for your cooperation.

7/17/2019 3:24 PM

Just want clarify what you can bring in for your coaches and players in the team cooler. I recommend one large enough to accomadate the following:

  1. Soda, water, sports drinks etc.
  2. Sandwiches, snacks, salad, fruit etc.
  3. Cooling towels.
  4. If personal water bottle for the player, place in his/her Bat bag
The team cooler may be restocked as needed throughout the day or event. I want your teams to be comfortable, hydrated and nourished at all times. It is sure to be HOT so plan accordingly for what your team will consume.

Also, some are inquiring about places to eat. There are many good choices in the area. Some favorites are Clawson's 1905 Restaraunt in Beaufort, Ruddy Ducks and also the Sanitary Restaraunt on the Morehead City waterfront, Amos Mosguitos and Cox Family Restaraunt in Morehead City. Again - many choices to choose from and you can find all of them here

hope this is helpful to all of you in planning your weekend at the Crystal Coast!


7/15/2019 2:49 PM

We welcome pop up tents at all of the venues. We request not to put them up behind Home Plate or where they would block the view of anyone sitting in bleachers. If you have cooling fans for your dugout they are allowed as well. Also, I am not aware of any restrictions on bringing your pet to the park so long as they are on a leash and "scoop" after. Hope this helps all of you prepare for the weekend!

7/14/2019 4:03 PM
