Central Ozarks Cal Ripken League Returns to Ballparks of America 

BRANSON, Missouri – Just in time for a beautiful Ozark Mountain spring, the Central Ozarks Cal Ripken League announces its return to Ballparks of America for its third season at the complex. The league allows teams across Southwest Missouri to compete on Ballparks of America’s five 2/3-scale replicas of historical Major League fields under the lights as they gear up for their summer season. 

“Bringing teams from around Southwest Missouri to compete in the Central Ozarks Cal Ripken League is one of the best parts of spring. We can’t wait to watch all the players live their Major League dreams under our lights,” says League Commissioner Brad Margolin. 

The 2023 spring season has leagues available for 11U, 12U, and 13U and will take place from April 4 to May 25. Doubleheaders for 13U will be played Tuesday, while 11U and 12U teams will play their doubleheaders Thursday. All teams are guaranteed 12 games over six weeks. The top four teams from each age group will move to Playoff Week for the chance to be crowned champion of the Central Ozarks Cal Ripken League. 

“The crack of the bat, the smell of leather, families cheering – it’s time to play ball! March, April, and May will be busy with the Central Ozarks Cal Ripken League and great tournaments with our partners GMB and Game 7 Baseball,” says Ballparks of America General Manager Scott Bailes. 

Ballparks of America also hosts tournaments nearly every weekend throughout the spring in partnership with Game 7 Baseball and GMB. Game 7 Baseball and GMB have hosted Spring and Fall Tournaments at Ballparks of America for several years. Their partnership allows teams across the Midwest to experience Branson and all it offers. The Ballparks of America staff is excited to host another successful spring season that will benefit the Branson community while creating a one-of-a-kind baseball experience for the sport’s youth.
