This division, which has a 50′ pitching distance and 70′ base paths, is offered as an additional option to our current AAA Minors division. The AAA 70’s division is the highest level of Cal Ripken Baseball and is considered a highly competitive division. Players in this division are leage age 11 and 12 years old. All players, except coaches options will be required to perform an assessment to determine the players skills based on catching, fielding, throwing and hitting. Managers will then draft players based upon the player’s assessment and their individual team needs. All players are re-drafted each year. The emphasis of this division is to continue to focus on developing individual and overall team skills and managers will look to field the most competitive team. Game scores and standings are recorded and upon completion of the regular season, a post-season tournament is held. Players participating in this division can also be considered for our 11 and 12 year old All Star teams. AAA division has one manager option and two coach options. The season typically starts in mid March and goes until the 1st week of June.
