B4C Baseball Cooperative Approach

B4C events will be designed in consideration of existing local leagues and organizations, such as HMBL, DCMSBL, DBW, JSB, and others. The intent of B4C Baseball is to create additional opportunities for people to play together in unique formats and neat venues. You should continue to participate in the events and leagues that you already do. We will seek to coordinate with the leadership of various groups to help avoid duplication of times and locations, to avoid logistical conflicts.


Yankee Stadium at The Aberdeen Ripken Complex

All-turf field on the Ripken Aberdeen complex. The dimensions are equivalent to Old Yankee Stadium, the home of the New York Yankees from 1923-2008.
