Growing up in Maryland, when you hear the name “Ripken“, one word immediately comes to mind… BASEBALL! Cal Ripken, Sr. spent 37 years associated with our hometown team, the Baltimore Orioles. He first played as a catcher, before moving onto manager and company man. Of course any fan of the Orioles, or really any fan of baseball, will recognize the name of his son, Cal Ripken, Jr., a Major League Baseball Hall of Famer. Cal Sr. dedicated his life to teaching the value of hard work and effort to his sons. Together Cal Jr. and his brother Bill played a combined 33 years in the Major League, with Cal Jr. setting the Major League record with 2,632 consecutive games played, and Bill owning a .985 career fielding average. I can definitely say that Cal Sr. taught his boys well!
I knew if I ever was going to send my little baseball fan to a sports camp, I’d of course want him to learn the “Ripken Way” when it comes to playing out on the field, or batting at plate. Ripken Baseball is committed to maintaining baseball at the highest level, while making sure campers still have fan and enjoy the game!
