 LEAGUE NEWS

 

 

Here we grow again................

 

We are pleased to announce that we have registered over 240 kids this fall.   This number is up about 40% from our inaugural Fall Season in 2012.

Our registrations for this past spring were over 320 kids which was up from the Spring of 2012 by about 25%.  If you include our local High School Baseball programs playing under the Babe Ruth Banner we have nearly 400 kids playing in our organization!

In response to the growth we have already experienced, and the continued growth we anticipate; we were able to work with Collier County Parks & Rec over the summer to acquire more field and batting cage time.  We are please to announce that we will now have more field time at Veterans Community Park located at 1895 Veterans Park Drive, Naples, 34110 and field and batting cage time at Golden Gate Community Park located at 4701 Golden Gate Parkway, Naples, 34116.  We have also gained access to the batting cages at Veterans Community Park.  

Synonymous with growth comes more work. The cages at Veteran's need to be updated, soft-toss stations to the fields, we are constantly looking for more equipment, balls and instruction equipment..

We now need your help. We are looking for volunteers to help with league operations. We need help with concessions, equipment, scheduling and fundraising. Please email us if you would like to know more about these positions or if you can assist in any of these areas.  Any small task is helpful.  Please be a part of making Naples Cal Ripken and Babe Ruth Collier County's fastest growing youth sports organization - and doing it "The Ripken Way".  

We are excited about the direction of our league and we are always looking for ways to improve. If you have any ideas or suggestions, please email the league at: naplescalripken@gmail.com
