Cal Ripken Series
The Cal Ripken World Series is a life changing opportunity for young Aussie Baseball players to represent their country on one of the most exciting baseball tours in the World. Since 2001 the Cal Ripken program has been steadily developing some of Australia’s youngest stars, highlighted by the large number of former Cal Ripken players that have gone on to represent their country at AA, AAA and now even senior level.
As is the process each year, the 15 players selected will be drawn from players nominated by their respective state associations after scouting and selection trials, and each will carry the hopes for Australia – building on the solid performances displayed by Aussies in the Cal Ripken Series over the past eight years.
