The Fall 2019 Season is in the books and I am so excited to announce our latest news.....I couldn't wait to announce this event.

As you are all aware, Dicks Sporting Goods provides our league with unbelievable support both financially and with equipment.  In fact, they made an extra large donation to us after Irma hit Naples and we had a rushed and shortened Fall season.  Dicks provides our green bucket practice balls for every team, they provide 20% off discount weekends whenever we ask.  Dicks has even provided us with Gift cards to help buy equipment when the league wasn't allowed to buy catchers gear!  These are all appreciated and are very important to help run an exceptional growing program.

Because of our continued solid relationship with Dicks and the amount of money that all of us have spent on our 20% off weekends, Dicks is paying for and hosting a Baseball Factory private clinic exclusively for Naples Cal Ripken 2020 Spring registrants.  This clinic will be for all our registrants from Tee Ball on up to Babe Ruth.  I recommend that you go the the Baseball Factory website to check it out and see what they do....pretty awesome stuff and it is not inexpensive!  Baseball Factory will be flying in for our event and making our day perfect.   

Please make sure to pay attention to the times listed by age group.  Also, please make sure that your child is registered by 12/31 at the latest, to attend this event.  This event will only be open to Spring 2020 Naples Cal Ripken registrants.

Saturday January 11th will be at Veterans Park and Sunday January 12th will be at Dicks Sporting Goods at Gulf Coast Town Center.  Saturday, please make sure your player is ready to play with all their equipment and make sure they are wearing baseball pants.  Sunday, kids can come to the store in shorts as they will; be running through hitting stations with the Baseball Factory staff. 

Please note that on Sunday, there will be bat fitting in the cages and Dicks will be providing 20% certificates for that day as well.

I am hoping for 100% participation on this and all kids at all levels will benefit from learning from different coaches.  To our current Managers/coaches....please come and attend the event, but in this rare situation, you get to relax and watch from the stands.

Please make sure that we thank Dicks in SW Florida by making it your exclusive sporting goods store of choice!   

Obviously, we will be adjusting our tryouts for Minor A, Majors and Babe Ruth as they were scheduled for 1/11.  I will send an email out later this month as a reminder of this event and also the tryout date.

Thanks again, be safe and have a happy holiday!
