“Ripken Select Tournaments allow us to reach more ballplayers across the country and take the greatest experience in youth baseball beyond our own complexes in Maryland, Tennessee, South Carolina, and Kentucky,” said Mike Kenney, Executive Vice President of Ripken Baseball. “Next summer is shaping up to be our biggest in company history with the addition of The Ripken Experience™ Elizabethtown and three Ripken Select Tournaments in Florida and Texas.”
Ripken Select Tournaments were first introduced in 2021 at a single location in Round Rock, Texas, through a 60+ team event. Based on demand, the Ripken Select Tournaments expanded in 2022 and will continue the tradition next summer.
As part of their continuous growth in youth sports, Ripken Baseball also recently announced the addition of The Ripken Experience™ Elizabethtown in Kentucky, which will host its first tournaments in 2023. It joins Ripken Baseball’s lineup of youth sports destinations, including The Ripken Experience™ Aberdeen (Maryland), The Ripken Experience™ Myrtle Beach (South Carolina), and The Ripken Experience™ Pigeon Forge (Tennessee).
