11 boys with 11 dreams to take on the WORLD! 

These 11 year old boys from Langley Baseball Association's 2018 All Star team have been training for years (most since the wee age of 5) and are stoked for this once in a lifetime opportunity to represent Canada at the 2018 Cal Ripken World Series in Treasure Coast, FL, August 6-13!

These boys have an exciting summer ahead of them which begins with a month of training in June where they'll play exhibition games against teams throughout the lower mainland and Vancouver Island. Then in July our first tournament in Meridian, Idaho, followed by the World Series tournament in August in Treasure Coast, Florida. So much FUN and so much $$$!

This will be the 4th time in Langley Baseball Association’s over 50 year history that a Little League (U12) team has made it to a World Championship. The World Series will be live streamed worldwide and will include the Babe Ruth Experience, customized Team Canada uniforms, an online personalized profile page and media night for each of the players.  This journey to the World Series will cost players and their families upwards of $5000 per family. 

In order to make this amazing experience accessible to all players, regardless of their personal family and financial background, we have set a goal of raising $30,000 ($22,500 from gofundme) to help cover just some of the costs associated with travel and equipment. Any donation will go a long way to making sure this experience becomes a reality for each of these boys.

We'll be sure to share the live stream link when it becomes available so you can watch these kids kick butt in Florida!

Watch for updates along the way as we approach our goal of WORLD DOMINATION!

Thanks for your generosity,

Your 2018 Langley Baseball U12 All Star Team

Another HUGE thank you to everyone who has supported these boys along their road to the Cal Ripken World Series in Florida!

We leave this weekend and tournament play starts next Tuesday, August 7th. The games will be live streamed and can be found here: http://www.crworldseries.com/broadcastschedule.aspx

It was been a baseball filled summer and the boys are loving every minute of it!

Our first stop was the Little League District Tournament in early July where our group of mostly 11 year old boys battled it out against Coquitlam and Whalley (mostly 12 year olds) and fell short with a bronze medal. They put up a great fight and we're looking forward to a strong 2019 season!

Next up was Idaho for the Cal Ripken Pacific North West Regional Tournament in mid July which was a great experience for the boys and was our warm-up to the World Series. This tournament was a learning experience that taught us exactly what we need to work on for the World Series! And, oh boy, have they been working on it!

The coaches and players have been practicing every day since we returned from Idaho and have learned SO much! We're so excited to see their growth in Florida and no matter the outcome, we're all so very proud of the hard work the entire team has put in this summer!

Way to go boys! Thanks so much coaches! And to all our donors and sponsors, we're SO grateful for the support!

Thanks again for your generous donation to help these boys make it to the World Series!

A quick update...the boys' exhibition schedule is well under way. We started on Friday night with a game against Whalley for our first WIN of the season - it wasn't easy though, they squeaked out an 8-7 victory! Then on Sunday a double-header against Mt. Seymour - game one was a close 6-5 loss, but we came back strong in the second game with an 11-3 WIN!!!

We're off to a great start!
