ABOUT THE 21st WARD JUNIOR LEAGUE

The 21st Ward Junior League is a non-profit organization
that serves the children of Northwest Philadelphia (the 21st Ward).
  We have no paid employees, and can provide sports activities to resident children only through volunteer efforts and participation. Fees are designed to cover the cost of the baseball and softball programs that we offer. The parents or guardians of each child participating in the League's programs are asked to provide 2 hours of time per season in field maintenance and trash pickup to enable us to keep costs low and to maintain our quality facilities that are enjoyed by all.

We are looking forward to hosting the Cal Ripken 12u district tournament this weekend.  If at anytime you have any questions you can contact our Cal Ripken Rep, Nick Rosley at 215-817-6061 or Chuck Yanoshik at Charles.yanoshik@gmail.com.
 
Please note: the schedule has been revised due to field upgrades being made at the Pearlman complex.  Please confirm that you have received these changes in order to avoid any forfeits. It is your responsibility to re-confirm your playing times.  Thank you for your understanding and please relay this to your parents as well .
 
I have attached the final bracket format.   The Sunday schedule is flexible should the participating teams decide that they want to play earlier in the day (Morning vs. Evening), although, if we get rain, at all, we’ll most likely need the Sunday time slots to make up any Saturday games.  Also we recommend checking the website daily throughout the tournament to stay up to date on the schedule.
 
Some information you may find useful:
  • we have an air conditioned room that will be available to all teams throughout the tournament
  • we have a concession stand 
  • we will provide water to teams on the benches throughout the tournament
  • we will have tents over the benches home and away
