The Alexandria Aces Collegiate Summer Baseball Club, the eighth and newest member of the Cal Ripken, Sr. Collegiate Baseball League, is proud to kick off its newest theme to attract top quality ball players to play for the team next summer.
“We are building an outstanding baseball organization, something the city of Alexandria and local fans can be very proud of,” said Aces chairman and CEO, Don Dinan. “Part of our process in building the Aces is promoting the idea that Alexandria is the perfect place for collegiate ball players to play wooden bat baseball here next summer and for many years to come,” Dinan added. “The players that we will recruit to play for the Aces all have exceptional baseball talent and want to show their skills to major league scouts. They want to be drafted. Our ball club will provide them a fantastic opportunity to be in the spotlight. We want those players to know that the road to Major League Baseball runs through Alexandria.”
The Alexandria Aces Collegiate Summer Baseball Club is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and will play its inaugural season in 2008 as a part of the Cal Ripken, Sr. Collegiate Baseball League, based primarily in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. The Aces will compete against the Bethesda Big Train, Herndon Braves, Rockville Express, Silver Spring-Takoma Thunderbolts, Maryland Redbirds, College Park Bombers and Youse’s Maryland Orioles.
