Under the umbrella of the Orange County Cal Ripken League, located in Walden, NY, the Gladiators are a travel baseball team participating in tri-state area competitive tournaments, the New York Elite Baseball League, and local community projects throughout the Hudson Valley. The team strives for excellence both on and off the field.
A not-for-profit organization run completely by volunteers, the Gladiators depend on the generosity and the kindness of the community for volunteers and financial support.
It takes a lot to run a baseball team, from the many coaches that set aside countless hours a week working with our kids to the parents who help keep our fields clean and our concession stand fully stocked. The Gladiators would like to thank all of our friends and family for enabling us to enjoy the game of baseball all year long.
Unfortunately, volunteering is not enough to ensure our kids have a safe and enjoyable experience learning the game. It can cost more than $3,500 a season to run a single travel team. We rely on sponsors to enable us to maintain our fields, purchase equipment, provide scholarships to children in need, and meet rising costs. If you are interested in helping us out, please consider making a donation. No donation is too small!
