There's a lot of State ties to this team. The boys play for the US title tonight at 7. It's on Stadium so check it out if you have time. Cal Ripken ball is much better baseball than Little League but doesn't get the press.

Yes sir, you can actually steal bases in Cal Ripken league.

I was an assistant coach on the 2004 12U West Raleigh team that was the first to make the Cal Ripken World Series. We beat Greenwich, CT to advance to the US Championship, similar to this years team. We beat Hawaii 8-1 to win the US and then lost to Mexico 4-3 in the World Championship game. Think about that summer often.

Amazing the amount of talent that West Raleigh continues to produce. Last years 12U team lost in the US Championship. They've already won the 11U World Series this year and earned a bid to next years CRWS.

Tonight's game will be streaming on Stadium and hope everyone can tune in!

Sam Highfill, Matt Willadsen and Peyton Green were part of back to back to back Ripken US champions while at West Raleigh. (2013, 2014, 2015) Willadsen's team actually won the world championship in 2014.

Several other players from those 3 years playing college and pro baseball currently. Ton of talent that went through there.
