During the ceremony, the Ripken Foundation dedicated the field to Jake with a plaque presentation, followed by an equipment donation to the Indian River Cal Ripken Baseball League. Jake said,
“I have great memories of playing baseball as a kid with my twin brother, Jarrod. Growing up in Vero Beach, I never imagined that one day there would be a baseball field here with my name on it. I’m thankful for music being the creative outlet that got me to where I am today and what brought us all together. I’m also very grateful to my good friends . . . for dedicating this baseball field to me. I hope there will be many incredible memories made on this field and that the kids who play here will believe that anything is possible with the support of their community.”
