A way for kids to learn teamwork
Parsons Baseball is the overseeing governing body for the organized Cal Ripken and Babe Ruth baseball programs in the city of Parsons.
The objective is to implant firmly in the boys and girls of the community the ideals of good sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty, courage and reverence, so that they may be finer stronger and happier boys and girls and will grow to be good, clean healthy people. These objectives are achieved by providing supervised competitive baseball games. The supervisors shall bear in mind that the attainment of exceptional athletic skill or the winning of games is secondary, and the molding of future people is of prime importance.
