Ripken Softball Classic 2017


Play ball! Hosted at the stadiums in Aberdeen, Maryland, the Under Armour Ripken Softball Classic consists of sponsored teams who take to the field to battle it out in a competitive tournament — all in the name of raising funds for programs supporting at-risk youth. The games are played on fields replicating Major League parks, including Fenway Park, Wrigley Field, and Memorial Stadium, which gives the participants the feel of playing in the big leagues. The championship game is played on Cal Sr.’s Yard, a miniature replica of Oriole Park at Camden Yards.

This annual event is hosted by Bill Ripken, and each team is paired with major league celebrity managers. Previous celebrity managers include Scott McGregor, Mike Bielecki, and B.J. Surhoff, just to name few. An awards presentation and dinner close the event each year.

If you are interested in getting a team this year, please contact Carrie LeBow, Executive Vice President of Resource Development and Marketing at clebow@ripkenfoundation.org to discuss sponsorship opportunities.
