5/4/20 - 2020 Season Cancelled

In consultation with all Cal Ripken Collegiate Baseball Franchises and League Officials, the Board of Directors met this evening and voted unanimously to cancel the 2020 summer season. This decision was made after reviewing health official guidance, regional trends as well as state and local directives (that will directly impact League logistics).
 
"The safety of our League participants, is and will always be our paramount concern," said CRCBL President Brad Rifkin. "Sadly, given the facts associated with COVID-19, we simply cannot jeopardize the health and safety of those affiliated with the CRCBL as well as the local communities we call home."
 
The CRCBL wants to thank our players, coaches, host families, fans, sponsors, and staff for your unwavering commitment. We appreciate your patience as we attempted to explore all contingency plans before making this final decision.
 
"While we all wanted nothing more than to throw out the first pitch to the 2020 summer season, the CRCBL will now focus our collective efforts on making 2021 our best season to date." said CRCBL Commissioner Jason Woodward.
 
Finally, our thoughts and prayers will continue to be with those impacted by the serious nature of this disease. We express our appreciation to all of the health workers and first responders on the frontlines of our battle against COVID-19. The more we all do our part now, the better we will be down the road. Stay safe and stay healthy.
 
See you in 2021!
 
Jason Woodward - League Commissioner
Brad Rifkin - League President

Thomas Burbank Named CRCBL Pitcher of the Week for June 24, 2019

From the CRCBL website on 6/24/19 http://pointstreaksites.com/view/calripkenleague/home-page-374

After starting the year 5-1, the Giants immediately followed with six straight losses. Over the course of that stretch, Jeff Rabberman's team failed to get consistent starting pitching. Thomas Burbank (Texas) changed that. His start against the Grays on June 20 provided exactly what the Giants desperately needed. Burbank allowed four hits and two runs over his seven innings on the mound. He struck out seven batters and walked none. Burbank recorded the win as the Giants defeated the Grays 7-4, a win which ended the six game losing streak. It was a start that led to the beginning of a better stretch of Giants pitching, as the team has won three of their last five games.
