All across the world and certainly here in the United States and in Rhode Island, Little League and Cal Ripkin baseball organizations are run by volunteers. Volunteers who have children in the league and some whose children have moved on to high school, college, even professional baseball. These unselfish individuals all wear many hats and put in hours and weekends of work to put a safe and quality organization together. Here are a few posts I have received recently about volunteers, as they help prepare their leagues for Opening Day and the 2018 Spring Season.
Coach Tom Pacia of North Kingstown High School and his NKHS baseball team held a free 2 hour clinic for divisions T-Ball to the Majors after North Kingstown Wickford’s Opening Day Ceremonies.
At Westerly National Little League, Fathers and Sons, Fathers and Daughter got to try out the new bullpen and cages after a very successful Field Day Cleanup.
West Warwick Baseball Field Day was a huge success, as volunteers cleaned out storage containers, dugouts, outfield fences, batting cages, and more.
And these are just some of the examples sent in to me on my Facebook page, The Rhode Island Baseball Experience. Congrats to all the volunteers for helping their towns and league’s get ready for the Spring Season. And Thank You!!!
If you would like to showcase a volunteer or volunteer group, send me photos and a description and I will post for all to see.
The RIBBE is The Rhode Island Baseball Experience. It is promoting the game of baseball here in the great state of Rhode Island for the entire baseball world to see. The RIBBE is positive stories, photos, videos, and responsible social media posts. The RIBBE is an information resource for families looking for an AAU team or a summer camp or a great place to buy a first baseman’s mitt. The RIBBE is a network of coaches, tournament directors, parents, leagues, and baseball junkies whose passion of the game of baseball is unquestioned. I believe that providing expert analysis, information and directions to ballfields, and coaching advice from some of the top RI baseball minds will help promote the game of baseball here in RI to a whole new level.
