In the interest of making baseball a safe and enjoyable experience for all and to align ourselves with neighboring communities, effective January 1st 2015, Cooper City Optimist Baseball has moved to adopt the bat rules implemented by the USSSA back in 2012.

Compliance with these rules is mandatory for all players and all teams and applies to all levels of play offered by Cooper City Optimist Baseball (In-House, All-Stars and Travel).

Words of Wisdom
"The way a team plays as a whole determines its success. You may have the greatest bunch of individual stars in the world, but if they don't play together, the club won't be worth a dime"

~ Babe Ruth

by Cooper City Optimist Baseball posted 05/02/2013
He Is Just a Little Boy
He Is Just a Little Boy

He stands at the plate
with his heart pounding fast.
The bases are loaded,
the die has been cast.
Mom and Dad cannot help him,
he stands all alone.
A hit at this moment
would send his team home.
The ball meets the plate,
he swings and he misses.
There's a groan from the crowd,
with some boos and some hisses.

A thoughtless voice cries,
"Strike out the bum."
Tears fill his eyes,
the game's no longer fun.
So open up your heart
and give him a break,
for it's moments like this,
a man you can make.
Please keep this in mind
when you hear someone forget,
He is just a little boy,
and not a man yet.
