Mar 26, 2024

Ripken Baseball® today announced it has expanded its All-Ripken Games in 2024 by increasing the number of facilities and tournaments for top individual youth baseball and softball players to compete at Ripken Baseball’s world-class facilities nationwide. It also confirmed Under Armour® (NYSE: UA, UAA) will be All-Ripken Games’ presenting sponsor in 2024 and will provide custom All-Ripken uniforms and performance wear to participating athletes.

All-Ripken Games, which debuted in 2023 at four facilities, will host seven baseball tournaments and two softball tournaments at six facilities in 2024 starting this April. The season will culminate with the All-Ripken Futures Games in December, featuring the top players of the season. Players must be nominated by their peers and coaches for the opportunity to train the Ripken Way, compete against elite young athletes, and receive the ultimate Big League Experience.


“The first year of All-Ripken Games was a massive success, and with our partners at Under Armour we are expanding to additional facilities with more tournaments in 2024,” said Ripken Baseball Co-Founder Bill Ripken. “The incredible feedback we received last year has led to a tremendous response for the 2024 nomination process, which is already underway.”


All-Ripken players will be evaluated by Baseball Factory scouts, compete in skills challenges, and play for the ultimate team goal, the All-Ripken Games Tournament Championship, which will be awarded at each location. In addition to receiving uniforms, Under Armour will provide participating players with an opportunity to test new Under Armour products and be included in digital playing cards.


“As a partner of Ripken Baseball, we are committed to inspiring the next generation of athletes through platforms like All-Ripken Games,” said Craig Cummings, VP, Team Sports & Sport Performance at Under Armour. “What they accomplished with All-Ripken Games in only one year is remarkable, and we look forward to helping them take it to the next level in 2024 and beyond.”
