Eagleton brings Smoky Mountain Cal Ripken Baseball League to Maryville

Launch of new baseball league for Blount and surrounding counties

Maryville, TN: Beginning the Spring of 2019 Eagleton Ballpark is excited to announce it will be providing the
Smoky Mountain
Cal Ripken Baseball League to players in Blount and surrounding counties.  The league will include ages 12 and under in various divisions.  From tee ball, 7-8 Minors, 9-10, 11-12 AAA and Major. Cal Ripken Baseball is a division of Babe Ruth Baseball for players under the age of 12 as a player development program.

The board of Eagleton Ballpark determined that Cal Ripken Baseball fit its desire to offer a true player development program to help kids properly learn and enjoy the game.  Too often we have provided leagues for kids to participate in but have not provided skill and character development that will advance them as players and good citizens. The Cal Ripken Way is a program design that evokes quality, drive and fun back into the game.  The high quality associated with this program should be a great opportunity for players of all skill levels to enjoy the game more or for the first time.

Coaches and Umpires will follow a training program that supports the program design.  The players will all receive the same pre-season training from outside skill instructors which will in turn help provide coaches with tools to continue their development.  Likewise umpires will go through course training to offer quality on field management of the games.

Comparable to other programs, Cal Ripken Baseball offers its own tournament trail for postseason play.  District, Regional, State and World Series tournaments are a draw for kids who participate in the league and are chosen to represent there divisions.

Registration to participate in the Smoky Mountain Cal Ripken Baseball League will open up Saturday November 17th for early registration.  The league games will begin in April and run for 8 weeks.
