WRA Baseball

The Whitpain Recreation Association (WRA) offers organized baseball programs through Cal Ripken/Babe Ruth Baseball. 

 
The leagues are structured to foster sharpened fundamental skills, increase knowledge of the sport and most importantly, to have fun.  Our dedicated volunteers and experienced coaches help to facilitate programs for players 4 years and older; ranging from t-ball to American League.  All ages are based on a May 1 cut off meaning the age of your child on April 30th is considered their baseball age. 

 

Games for all age groups are primarily played at Wentz Run Park, PECO Field and occasionally on school district fields.

Volunteer Opportunities

Opportunities are not limited to just our children.  Like all successful WRA programs, baseball is driven by dedicated volunteer organizers and coaches.  In additional to coaching, please consider joining one of the following committees: Open Day Parade, Sponsorships, Field Assistance, Uniforms, Equipment or Fundraising.

 

 

Travel Baseball

In addition to a wonderful rec league, the WRA hosts travel and tournament teams from 8U to 12U. Our teams play in tournaments throughout the region and in venues as exciting as the Cal Ripken complex in Aberdeen Maryland.  The players enjoy successful play from April through July; First in the very competitive spring travel, and then in summer tournaments that culminate with the Cal Ripken District Tournament for the chance to win States.

Ages are based on a May 1st cut off, meaning your child’s age on April 30th is their baseball age.

Tryouts are well advertised and take place each spring. 

8U – Coach TBD

9U – Coach Rich Lunsford

10U – Coach Brendan Flatow

11U – Coach Steve Labroli
