The Ripken Experience to Begin at Walt Disney World in 2020

All of you baseball fans out there will be very familiar with Cal Ripken Jr.! He is one of the most accomplished professional baseball players in history and he is coming to Walt Disney World with his youth baseball academy! The program is an awesome offering for young baseball players out there. Baseball players from ages 6 to 18 will be able to come to ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex to compete in high-level youth baseball tournaments!

Not only will they get to participate in the tournaments and experience playing baseball at Walt Disney World, they will also get to enjoy other experiences. There will be an opening ceremony and they will have time to enjoy fun in the theme parks at Walt Disney World! The fun all kicks off in 2020.

If you need a little history on Cal Ripken Jr.: Ripken played 21 seasons for the Baltimore Orioles and was a 19-time All-Star shortstop.  He earned the nickname “The Iron Man” after setting the professional baseball record for most consecutive games played (2,632). 

Who out there do you know that would love to participate in this amazing baseball experience for youth?

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
