Spring seasons typically last for a 10 weeks. Our season usually begins the first of April and continues through June. Post season tournament play is offered in several of our divisions.


Offered Programs


 
T-Ball:
Designed for 4 and 5-year-olds.  In the 4 year old division, players will hit off a tee and learn the basic fundamentals of baseball.  In the 5-year-old division, players will hit off of a tee while continuing to learn the fundamentals of the game.  The T-Ball League receives high praise from coaches, players, parents, and league officials. The T-Ball League is an excellent way to continue teaching the fundamentals of the game and building player confidence.


 
Rookie:

Instructional league for ages 6, 7, and 8. Among teammates of their own age and experience level, players continue building and refining their fundamental skills while they begin to understand game strategy. It is at the Rookie League level that players first experience post-season tournament competition, with state and regional levels of play.

*Cal Ripken managers and coaches will watch the Rookie League, 8-year-old division season games to evaluate players that they may like to draft into their Cal Ripken organizations. Please read further for information about our Cal Ripken League.
