The Home of the Central District Baseball League (CDBL)
Welcome to the home of the Central District Baseball League (CDBL)
For 33 years, CDBL has been a non-profit youth baseball organization dedicated to serving the community of Burlington School District 301. We strive to provide quality instruction in the development of baseball skills, sportsmanship, & competitiveness to foster the love of the game and have fun while doing it.
We often get asked "What's it like being a part of CDBL Baseball?"
Being a part of CDBL allows our athletes to grow both mentally and physically through training. It's about developing the skills we have to create consistently good habits in baseball.
Two of our own, Evan Larson and Xavier Mikowski, shown here working on their game with professional baseball instructor Sam Klein at KineticZ Training Gym. Their focus is to be committed to excellence and progressing in a positive way on and off the field through CDBL.
We hope this email finds you well. During this unprecedented time, CDBL is committed to our league and to our community and would like to communicate some recent decisions. The Executive Board has met and has come up with a calendar for the 2021 Season. Please make note of the following information

"The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game; it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds us of all that once was good, and that could be again. Oh…people will come, Ray. People will most definitely come."
