To All Tournament Participants, Coaches, and family members,
On behalf of Charles County and the Charles County Youth League, we are pleased to welcome all the players,
coaches, families and friends to the 2015 Cal Ripken 12U 50/70 Baseball Tournament.
This event is the result of determination, commitment and hard-work throughout the course of a season by many
people. Please join us in thanking the many volunteers for all of their efforts in making this event possible. We
would like to extend a special thank you to the parents and coaches who contribute so much time, effort and money
to allow the players to participate in and enjoy this great sport.
We encourage everyone to cheer on all participants during this tournament. Most of these players have traveled a
long way to show-off their hard-work, meet some new friends and most of all take away some memories. A loud
cheer for a great play will stick in a player’s mind for years to come. Have fun and cheer your hearts out in a positive
way. Please be respectful of our volunteers and umpires, because they are working hard to ensure everyone has
an enjoyable experience.
We also encourage you to get away! Southern Maryland is rich with history and attractions both local and nationally
known. Don’t deny yourself the opportunity to taste some Southern Maryland cooking. We are known for our Blue
Crabs, Crab Cakes, Oysters, Rockfish and our most notable dish is Stuffed Ham. If you choose to have wings, ask for
them “Maryland” style.
Between what we have to offer and the fact that our County is less than 25 miles south of our Nation’s Capitol, we
are positive there is something to do and see for everyone in your family.
In closing, we want to wish all the teams good luck, and know that the eventual winners will be a worthy
representative of the quality of baseball in the state of Maryland.
See you at the park!
The Players, Coaches and Families of Charles County Youth League
