Learn To Play Baseball The "Ripken Way "

Bill Ripken and Cal Ripken, Jr. have developed a method of baseball instruction based on their combined 33 years of Major League Baseballexperience and the teachings of their father Cal Ripken, Sr. The Ripken Way is based on the following principals.   

Keep It Simple

  • Defense is two parts- catching and throwing.
  • Allow kids to get the feel of doing things correctly during drills.

Make It Fun

  • A variety of defensive drills keeps it interesting.
  • Create games and contests to keep drills exciting.

Explain Why

  • Fielding balls out in front allows your eyes to see the ball go into your glove.
  • Throwing with a four-seem grip allows for more carry and accuracy.

Celebrate The Individual

  • Let kids be kids.
  • Individual flare is okay as long as certain fundamentals are followed.
This unique instructional program explores how to play baseball the "Ripken Way". Actual footage of professional baseball players is used to illustrate each lesson. Understanding and applying the "Ripken Way" can help youth baseball players improve all aspects of their game.
