Just a different organization. Most of the same ages and rules except Cal Ripken offers lead-off baseball in the Major League. There are two little leagues here in town, Pulaski and Burnside. They have geographic boundries that decide if you play in one or the other. Cal Ripken is county wide, so any child in the county can play. Cal Ripken has the new park up on North 27 by the water park and has grown to over 500 kids the last few years.

On the local level, almost all of the talent is in Cal Ripken. I agree that Little League may have a stronger league nationwide and, possibly, even statewide, but not in Somerset. I believe if you played the local leagues against each other, Cal Ripken would win 4 out of 5 times. Just an opinion based on watching games in Cal Ripken and both area Little Leagues. The numbers just are there in the local Little Leagues.

Honestly the Ripken B Teams would run rule the Little Leagues and often do in tournaments. The Ripken teams have been State Runners Up at every level.

Somerset couldn't get out of the regionals of little league with the likes of Rockcastle County and Laurel Counties putting whoopins on them.

That is just not true. Cal Ripken has no bounderies or requirements in Pulaski County as they are the only CR League. Back in the old days when they were Little League, Pulaski and Burnside usually ate their lunch. When my son was small, Somerset was usually not very competitive. That is why they changed, so they could include players that otherwise would be playing in one of the other Little Leagues. Little League is set by bounderies based on population within the geographical region and Somerset some years would do pretty good, other years Pulaski or Burnside would be the top dog. Parents at Somerset should go back to Little League. You could have the three leagues play and also start a inter-league season as well. It would provide the kids an opportunity to play more games without travel. After the LL season you could start the fall league and have all of the teams compete. But we all know youth sports are about the parents who only care about themselves. Most of the times they don't even ask the kids what or where or who they would like to play.
