FORGING THE FUTURE OF BASEBALL
The Ripken brothers know where their love of the game started. It was in the countless hours spent on baseball fields in their youth, with the camaraderie between teammates, salty sunflower seeds sailing through the air, and the big games under the lights.
To pay tribute, they’ve constructed three tournament complexes that honor our national pastime while pushing it to new levels. The first was built in their hometown of Aberdeen, MD. The second, in one of the country's most desirable vacation destinations, Myrtle Beach, SC. The third is nestled into the picturesque Smoky Mountain landscape of Pigeon Forge, TN.
Part of every Ripken Experience is the professional, major league quality fields. From the covered dugouts and lighted fields to the incredible practice areas and on-site fountains, statues and photo opportunities. Ripken tournaments are youth baseball at their finest, on the field and off.
At our The Ripken Experience Aberdeen Powered by Under Armour, you can become a big leaguer at age 9. Hit a homerun over the Green Monster at Fenway, slide into second on the legendary Wrigley Field, or swing for the Warehouse at Cal Sr’s Yard in a stadium atmosphere that mirrors Oriole Park at Camden Yards. Even get your heart racing as you hear over the PA system, "At bat, number 8..."
In Myrtle Beach, enjoy elite competition on incredible fields with easy access to beaches, shopping, dining and more.
In Pigeon Forge, compete in the shadow of the Smoky Mountains at one of America’s fastest growing family vacation destinations.
And it's not just kids who can get in on the fun. Coaches can make calls from big league dugouts and glance over at the professional scoreboards.
