Welcome to Keene Cal Ripken, Babe Ruth Baseball, and Softball (also known as GKYBSA)!  

The purpose of our organization is to provide an opportunity for youngsters to learn the fundamentals of baseball and softball and to facilitate their enjoyable participation in this activity so they may become happier and better people.  Objectives include the development of positive social values and character traits, good citizenship, physical and mental well being, and a knowledge, appreciation and interest in baseball and softball.  The primary goal of this program is that all boys and girls who sign up and tryout, be placed on a team and given the opportunity to participate in every game.  Additionally, that the welfare of all participants be kept free from any adult ambition or personal glory.
