Rhode Island Baseball Parks Honor Local Veterans With Honor

This past summer and fall, I had the good fortune of visiting over 50 baseball fields here in Rhode Island.  Some visits were for my North Kingstown Wickford Little League teams I managed.  Others for a series of articles I am writing about the many, many beautiful baseball fields and their incredible volunteers who manage them.  And one of the many constants I found at these great baseball parks is their dedications to our United States Servicemen and Servicewomen.

These Rhode Island baseball park displays and dedication sites for Veterans make you pause and stand and appreciate the sacrifices of our country’s military.   I have several Veterans of war and service abroad in my family.  Depending on who I ask, the appreciation for their service has not always been recognized.  Veterans of any war, any service, and commitment such as sacrificing your life, family, and future for service in our country’s military should be appreciated and honored, in my opinion.  These dedication plaques adorned with American flags are just a small token of appreciation for our Veterans.  Here are some RI Little League baseball fields and their dedication plaques that caught my eye this summer:

The Rhode Island Baseball Experience thanks you the Veterans, one and all, the families, and communities for honoring these brave men and women who served our country with honor.

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.
