Cal Ripken Spring 2019 Season - Registration now open!

Updated Wednesday February 13, 2019 by Jeff Tonole.

Ithaca Baseball is pleased to announce that registration for the spring Cal Ripken season (players age 9 to 12) is now open. Boys and girls from throughout Tompkins County are encouraged to register. During the season, which takes place from April to June, players build and refine their fundamental skills while developing their understanding of game strategy and teamwork. Keeping baseball fun -- especially in the early stages of youth baseball -- is a primary goal.

To register, click on the green Log In button at the top of this page.

The cost for the season is $135.00. Scholarships are available.

A mandatory evaluation session will be held on Saturday, March 23, 2019 at Ithaca College’s Athletics and Events Center. The purpose of the session is to assess players’ skills and abilities in order to create equitable and balanced teams. Here is the schedule for the evaluation session:

  • Majors (ages 11-12) -- 3:00 to 4:45 pm
  • Minors (ages 9-10) -- 5:00 to 6:45 pm

Players and their caregivers are encouraged to arrive 30 minutes prior to the start time to allow ample time for registration and check-in. Please park in the “M” Lot at Ithaca College. A campus map can be found here: https://map.ithaca.edu/#!UMAP_2017083074549.

Should special circumstances preclude attendance, parents or caregivers must contact calripken@ithacabaseball.com prior to March 23 to make alternate arrangements.

Advance registration is encouraged, but walk-ins on evaluation day will be welcome. Please be prepared to present proof of age upon registration.
