Everyone loves quick answers! With our inagural season in the Spring of 2021, please be patient as we will build our organization adn website and understand some of your questions.
We will try to answer as many questions as we can! If you don't see your answer here, please reach out to one of our board members.
Q: Aren't you East Lake Little League?
A: For several years, East Lake Diamond Sports operated under East Lake Little League. We will now be operating under a new name with a new organzation, Cal Ripken.
Q: What does that mean for my family? Will it be different?
A: Actually, not much will change for you! Some of the rules on the field may be differnt and eligability dates will shift, but you will still get the same community involvement, tons of fun and make memories and friends to last a lifetime! The area we will serve for families to join will expand as well!
Q: The area will expand? What does that mean?
A: As East Lake Little League, we served a very small area in East Lake and Palm Harbor. Under Cal Ripken/Babe Ruth, we are able to have families join our organziation as far North as Trinity, all the way to Gulf on our West side, South to Highway 60 and East to Oldsmar and Safety Harbor. If you live in area that is not a designated Cal Ripken/Babe Ruth league, there may still be an opportunity!
