A new college-age summer baseball league has been formed by six of Maryland's top amateur teams and will be called the Cal Ripken Sr. Collegiate Baseball League.

Composed of players age 22 and under, the league will consist of the Bethesda Big Train, College Park Maryland Bombers, Maryland Redbirds (Towson), Rockville Express, Silver Spring-Takoma Thunderbolts and Youse's Maryland Orioles of Baltimore.

Youse's Maryland Orioles and the Big Train will open the season on June 10 at Shirley Povich Field in Bethesda. An all-star game will be played July 18 at Ripken Stadium in Aberdeen, and playoffs are set for Aug. 4-9.
