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 constructed two tournament complexes that would 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.
Part of every Ripken Experience is the professional, major league quality of the fields. From the covered dugouts and lighted fields to the incredible practice fields and on-site ponds, fountains and photography. 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 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 easy access to beaches, shopping, dining and more.
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.
