My tour of Rhode Island Little League fields continues with a trip to the village of Mapleville, RI and Burrillville Little League. Just off Main St. is the impressive Richard Peck Fields, a huge sports complex located at the tail end of Casino Ave. This sports complex stretches far and wide and has the woods serving as a natural boundary. I parked on Casino Ave. and was able to get an incredible view of the entire complex.
I lost count at 4 fields, there may have been one or two more that I missed. The main field just down the hill from the parking area was called Rymanski Field, dedicated to Andrew Rymanski, a former player in the league. There was tons of seating throughout this main field and I loved the raised steps behind home plate, a great place to watch a game or two. The entire complex was in really nice shape. There was a concession stand, which was located just outside the main field and next to the batting cages and a second baseball field. And located just passed the center field fences was an enclosed playground. Great idea as well.
The batting cages just passed the concession stand had a sign that read “Dedicated in Memory to Rich Guilbault, 2003.”
This was just a fantastic baseball complex to visit. 4 plus baseball fields, all in great shape and all with enough seating to cheer on the rising stars of Burrillville Little League. It was a great park at the tail end of a neighborhood with the woods serving as a natural boundary. I can only imagine a busy Opening Day here or Championship weekend at these Richard Peck baseball fields. A great RI Baseball Experience visiting Burrillville Little League’s Richard Peck Fields.

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.
