Aces season opens at Frank Mann Field.

The Alexandria Aces baseball team opened its 2022 season with a decisive 8-4 victory over the Cropdusters June 7 at Frank Mann Field. The two teams were scheduled to meet again June 15 with the Aces entering the game at 2-3 in the league standing.

The Aces are entering their 15th season as part of the Cal Ripken League, which began in 2005 to promote the sport in the Baltimore-Washington metropolitan area. The Aces play 18 regular season home games at Frank Mann Field at Four Mile Run Park.

“Our main goal is to give back to the community,” said team owner Frank Fannon of the nonprofit organization. “Together, we will strive to build a strong and vibrant youth baseball program in the City of Alexandria as we open our doors to some of the best collegiate baseball players in the country – a fraction of whom even make it to the Major Leagues.”

The next three games for the Aces will be home games at Frank Mann Field: June 17 against the Gaithersburg Giants; June 18 against the South County Braves; and June 19 against the D.C. Grays.

All games start at 6:30 p.m. with tickets available at the front gate for $5 for adults and $3 for children. Refreshments are available at the field.
