Ripken Softball Classic 2017

The 2017 Champions were Venable, LLP!

Play ball! Hosted at the stadiums in Aberdeen, Maryland, the Ripken Softball Classic consisted of sponsored teams who took 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 were played on fields replicating Major League parks, including Fenway Park, Wrigley Field, and Memorial Stadium, which gave the participants the feel of playing in the big leagues. The championship game was played on Cal Sr.’s Yard, a miniature replica of Oriole Park at Camden Yards.

This annual event was hosted by Bill Ripken, and each team was 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 closed the event each year.

The Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation thanks all our 2017 sponsors and friends for their dedicated support.
