Burlington Township 2015 Cal Ripken Baseball Opening Day
There isn’t a much better way to officially start spring than with some baseball. Opening Day recently occurred for the Cal Ripken Baseball League in Burlington Township, New Jersey. Design Build Planners is proud to be a sponsor of the league. Jason Parsons’ sons and Neil Parsons’ nephews, (Connor, Gavin, and Aidan) all play in the league. Jason volunteers as an assistant coach. Below you will find some quotes from each of them, along with some pictures from the day.
Jason Parsons (Asst. Coach) – “Everyone is excited on Opening day, the whole community comes together to celebrate the kids, Spring, and the sport of Baseball (and Softball). Our town’s program centers on teaching the kids the game and having fun.”
Connor Parsons (Age 9) – “Opening day was a lot of fun. Our team won, and I made a catch at 2nd to end the inning. We are 3-0 so far, and my travel team is going to be good this year also.”
NOTE: Connor also caught the ceremonial first pitch from the mayor. You can see a picture of on the right.
Gavin Parsons (Age 6) – “My favorite part of opening day was being able to play catcher.” (Pictured below).
Aidan Parsons (Age 7) – “My best friend is on my team. I caught a grounder and was able to throw it to him at first to end the game!”

The “Ripken Way” as listed on the Cal Ripken Baseball League website has a similar vision to that of the Design Build Planners Way for their mission and clients. Simply substitute Design Build Planners for Ripken and remodeling for baseball.
The Ripken Way is about perseverance, integrity and the unwavering commitment to be, and do our best. The Ripken Way shapes every experience with our brand – we celebrate the customer, we keep it simple, we make it fun and we align every experience with our purpose to forge the future of baseball.
