CBW's mission is to provide youth baseball players, ages 11 to 16, an opportunity to play in National, weeklong tournaments in the Cooperstown Hall of Fame area. Over its history, CBW has welcomed teams from 47 of the 50 states as well as Canada, the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, Israel, Kuwait, and Dubai!
During their week-long stay, our campers are exposed to college life. Through our partnership with the College at Oneonta, campers and their coaches reside in the college dormitories (with a staff of CBW Team Coordinators), dine in the college dining hall and have access to some of the College at Oneonta's finest facilities, including an indoor pool, indoor basketball courts, fitness center for coaches, outdoor track and outdoor tennis courts. For many, this is the first time they have been away from home giving them a valuable opportunity to experience what the college world has to offer.
Playing near Cooperstown must include a trip to the National Baseball Hall of Fame - here baseball fans, young and old, can learn about the chosen few who have those skills both on and off the field to be honored with baseball's highest honor. By learning about what it takes to be a Hall of Famer, goals are set high throughout a youth's baseball career lasting their entire life.
