Ripken Takes in Aces Game
Baseball Hall of Famer Cal Ripken Jr. stops by Frank Mann Field to watch his son play.
Ryan Ripken was 3-for-4 with a double and three RBI as the Orioles defeated the Aces 15-5.
Chris Sweeney homered for the Aces.
Both teams play in the Cal Ripken Collegiate Baseball League, a wooden bat summer league made up of amateur players from a variety of colleges and universities throughout the country. The league is regionally located in the Baltimore-Washington area. It is named after Cal Ripken Sr.
The Aces have just four home dates left in the regular season:
- Friday vs. Vienna River Dogs at 7 p.m.
- Saturday vs. Baltimore Redbirds at 5 p.m. (Doubleheader, second game at 7 p.m.)
- Monday vs. Silver Spring-Takoma Thunderbolts at 7 p.m.
- July 24 vs. D.C. Grays at 7 p.m. (make-up game)
