Naples Cal Ripken & Naples Babe Ruth League is now accepting applications for the 2014 Fall Ball recreation format baseball season. All players from Collier County, Bonita Springs, Estero & South Ft. Myers can sign-up by clicking on the link above.

Individual player’s ages 4 through 15 will play in the league, in which individual players are placed on teams for the season. Players have a chance to improve their skills, gain experience, try out a new position and play with a group of different players in their age group.

Fall Ball is a developmental, fun league where players are encouraged to try positions not typically played.Pitchers can work on their craft, and players can prepare and improve for next season. The schedule is created so that other sports may also be played provided you realize that there will be some weeks where the time of a Saturday soccer/football game conflicts with a Fall Ball game. On these weeks, players will need to make a choice which sport to play. Our philosophy for Fall Ball is that it is OK to miss a game provided you inform your coach ahead of time. This is one reason we try to have larger rosters.

Age determination is based on the 2015 Cal Ripken/ Babe Ruth Baseball age, which is your child’s age as of April 30, 2015.

We anticipate games will begin Oct. 9, 2014 and run until the end of Dec. 6, 2014 with each team in the Minor, Major & Babe Ruth Leagues playing 2 games per week, a 12-14 game season. The T-ball & Rookie Leagues will play 1 game per week. Our schedule allows for players to play other sports in the fall.

A team placement assessment will take place on Saturday, Sept. 27th, from 9am to 12pm  at Veterans Community Park fields for ages 8-15. Details and a schedule for the evaluations will be posted on the website in late September. Registration ends Oct. 2nd.  Registrations accepted after that date must include a $50 late fee, and we can not guarantee a spot on a team. We also encourage certified parents to sign up to help coach these teams.

 

 
 

 

 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
