About the East Boise Classic

An Annual Tradition in Youth Baseball

The East Boise Classic is hosted each season since by East Boise Youth Baseball and Softball, a charter of Cal Ripken and Babe Ruth. All teams are welcome to register for our tournament, regardless of league affiliation, as well as independent club teams.

We offer competitive games for league ages 9U, 10U, 11U, 12U, 13U, and 15U. League age is determined as player’s age on May 1st of that calendar year. The tournament is held each year in June, generally the third weekend of June. For the 2020 season, the tournament will be held 6/18 to 6/20 for most divisions with 13U 80′ hosting from 6/25 to 6/28. The number of games played will vary, but all teams will play a minimum of 4 games.
