Dear Potential Sponsor:

GREAT NEWS!!!  We at North Pocono Cal Ripken Baseball (NPCRB) are very excited to be entering our 15th season!!!

Cal Ripken Baseball is a division of Babe Ruth Baseball, an organization exploding all across the country. Here at North Pocono, we have grown from just 24 kids in 2008, to over 160 kids this past season in 2020. The league has recently added our 4th division called Instructional division. This new division, of mostly 5 and 6 year olds, was a huge hit with both the kids and their parents.  Both the Rookies and the Instructionals played the vast majority of their games in the North Pocono area. Our two older and more competitive divisions, Minors for 9 and 10 year olds and Majors for 11 and 12 year olds, regularly and impressively competed both in and out of the North Pocono area as part of the Tri County League. We are also very excited this year to add another Division, 13 to 15 year old league, The players can continue to play in our Cal Ripken League until the age of 15.

The emphasis of NPCRB is always on skill building, character building and fun for all who participate. We foster a family atmosphere that allows the players and families to form relationships that will last them a life time. Additionally, all kids who play ball through NPCRB play the entire season.  In addition to season long play for all, our league offers some special events as well.  We host a pitch-hit-run competition to kick off the season.  Our teams play in a few tournaments around the area and we usually offer an end-of-the-year group trip to a MLB minor league affiliate game.  More importantly, our league partners annually with the American Legion just prior to Memorial Day to place flags on the gravesites of area veterans at local cemeteries.

Like all youth programs, the NPCRB needs financial backing from the business community.  The businesses of Northeastern PA have a tradition of generous support to youth organizations.  We are asking that you continue in that tradition by supporting what the NPCRB does to benefit the youth of our area.  We are seeking team sponsors as well as other levels of assistance.  Please examine the attached sponsorship options and feel free visit our website at  You can also contact Kelly Hensel at 570-730-1512 with any questions.  We would love to talk to you! 

Should you decide to financially assist our programs, we will do all we can to promote your business or organization on our website and via word-of-mouth through our 125 plus families in the North Pocono area.  

Yours in Baseball,

Bill and Kelly Hensel
