According to Alexandria Gazette Packet, "As part of the Cal Ripken League, the Aces are an affiliate of Major League Baseball and professional scouts regularly attend games to recruit players for the MLB draft. Eight Cal Ripken League alumni, including Gio Diaz of the Washington Nationals, signed free agent contracts with MLB teams in 2020. “We formed the team in 2006 with our first season in 2008,” said team founder Donald Dinan. “Frank has been on the board since day one and due to a lot of reasons, I decided it was time for me to step back and let the next group take over and that’s Frank." As per Alexandria Gazette Packet, "The Aces team is comprised of college baseball players from around the country that live with host families in Alexandria and play a 40-game season in June and July. All games are played at Frank Mann Field behind Cora Kelly Elementary School. Admission is $5 and tickets are available at the gate. Local restaurants will cater food for concessions. Mitch Wasserman, a sports and recreation junior at James Madison University, is also part of the front office staff."
