2019 11U Cal Ripken State Champs

Six months ago, the Delran Bears 11U District Baseball team started their annual winter workouts with two goals in mind: “Win Districts, Win States”.  Were they crazy, you ask? Maybe, but this scrappy young bunch of Bears knew one thing, when times get tough, they get tougher and never, ever give up.  Through all the blood, sweat, tears, missing hats and soccer cleats (don’t ask), they kept their eyes on the prize and worked hard to be playing their best baseball when the District Tournament came along.  Delran busted through the District #4 Tournament with a 4-0 record, recording their 4th straight Cal Ripken District Championship.  


Next was the SNJ State Tournament held in Hopewell Valley, NJ.  Despite the extreme heat and storm delays, Delran advanced to the State Final unbeaten in the Tournament to meet their biggest foe, the 3-time State Champion Marlton Reds.  The Championship Round would take two games, and after hibernating through the first game, the Bears awoke just in time in Game 2 to jump out to a big lead in the 1st inning, and take down the mighty Reds for Delran Baseball’s 1st Cal Ripken State Championship!

 

Delran is now 21-7 on the season, and is getting ready to head up to Poughkeepsie, NY to compete in the Cal Ripken Middle Atlantic Regional Tournament, where they will compete with teams from DE, MD, NJ, NY and PA.
