Spencer announces switch to Cal Ripken

Submitted story

It’s a new start for the oldest youth baseball league in Rowan County

Spencer Little League & Franklin Ellis Coach Pitch have announced a change to Cal Ripken Baseball.

Making this transition expands boundaries and allows  residents of the city of Salisbury  and Rowan County to join the league.

The Cal Ripken program will allow Spencer to play an advanced level of baseball,  along with East Rowan and China Grove.

By Cal Ripken having a bigger footprint in Rowan County, this will not only open the door to local but also region-wide  tournaments hosted by the community.

The Cal Ripken way teaches the game of baseball  the way it’s meant to be played.  These were deciding factors in Spencer making the  change.
