The Season Begins!

Sunshine is here and we're all excited to start the season. All registered players should now be assigned to their teams. Here are the important dates to know:

Practices begin the week of April 22

The practice schedule for all teams is now on the website. You can view the season practice schedule by finding your TEAM.

Uniform Night - Wednesday, May 1

Uniform Night is a social fundraiser, where players receive their team kit and enjoy a cookout. All proceeds support WCR operations and generate income for our scholarship program. This fundraiser takes place at Sts. Patricks & Raphael Parish in Williamstown. Teams cycle in (and out) at specific times between 5pm and 8pm. Please check your team practice schedule for your Uniform Night time slot.

Opening Day Ceremony - Saturday, May 4 at 9 am (arrive at 8:30am)

We begin the season with our Opening Day Parade. The entire Williamstown Cal Ripken program gathers in uniform at Williamstown Elementary School to parade with color guard down to the Bud Anderson Baseball Field for opening ceremonies and team pictures. The parade begins at 9 am, but please be at WES ready to meet your team at 8:30 am.

The photographer will also take individual player photos, and then our first day of ballgames begins!

Williamstown Cal Ripken Baseball and Softball is open to boys and girls ages 4 (before 1 Sept 2019) through age 12 (as of April 30, 2019 for baseball or December 31, 2019 for softball) who live in Northern Berkshire County and border towns in Vermont and New York.

The following Divsions are available:

Grant Division:  Ages 4 - 6 (Pre-K and Kindergarten)
The primary goal is to begin to instruct young players in the fundamentals of baseball and softball in a supportive team environment. Batters hit from a tee when needed, but also hit coach (or machine) pitched baseballs when possible. We place 4 year-olds in Learn-to-Play to provide the most age-appropriate learning.

Rookie Division:  Ages 7 - 8 (1st and 2nd Grade)
For inexperienced players designed to teach fundamental skills and build confidence as players begin to learn game strategy in a supportive environment of team competition with coach and machine pitching.

Minor Division:  Ages 8 - 10 (3rd and 4th Grade)
Designed to reinforce basic skills taught in Rookie League, build confidence as players and to further advance knowledge of game strategy in a supportive environment of team competition.  This level will introduce players to pitching and emphasize a more competitive atmosphere.  Designed for children with basic baseball skills.

Major Division:  Ages 10 - 12 (5th, 6th & 7th Grade)
The most experienced level of Williamstown Cal Ripken Baseball.  Players continue to build and refine skills while they apply game strategy in team competition with player pitching.

10U Softball:  Ages 7 - 10 (Girls in 2nd, 3rd & 4th Grade)
An introduction to softball skills and rules for girls, this level will introduce players to pitching and emphasize a more competitive atmosphere. Our 10U program builds on fundamentals learned in our Rookie and Grant Divisions but also works great as a beginner level.

12U Softball:  Ages 10 - 12 (Girls 5th, 6th & 7th Grade)
Players continue to build and refine skills while they apply game strategy in team competition with player pitching.
* Girls are eligible for 12U Softball with a birthdate up to December 31, 2006.
