Cal Ripken Baseball is a community based program for 5 year olds through 12 year olds.  Cal Ripken Baseball is played under the Official Baseball Rules, but implements some special rules as necessary for the development and welfare of this young age group.



Cal Ripken Baseball Division - Ages 4-12

Keeping baseball FUN-especially in the early stages of youth baseball-is a primary concern of Babe Ruth League's Cal Ripken Division, which is comprised of the following divisions:

Major/70: Featuring a 50' pitching distance and 70' base paths, this new division is offered as an option to current league format, and still includes a tournament trail from District competition through World Series.

Major/60: Currently the most popular level offered, this division is recommended for ballplayers ages 11-12. Features a 46' pitching distance and 60' base paths.

Minor: Recommended for ballplayers ages 9-10. Players build and refine their fundamental skills while beginning to understand game strategy and teamwork. In most regions, participants first experience post-season tournament competition in this level.

Rookie: Designed primarily for ballplayers ages 7-8, this division makes use of a pitching machine to allow for more hittable balls at the plate and more action in the field.

T-Ball: Ballplayers ages 4-6 learn hitting and fielding fundamentals in a supportive team environment. Young athletes hit the ball from a batting tee which is height-adjusted for a level swing, batting in order through the line-up for the entire game.
