The RIBBE Visits Exeter West Greenwich Little League’s Joan Tourgee Field

Exeter West Greenwich Little League is in District 3 along with North Kingstown Wickford Little League.  Having coached fall baseball for several years in District 3, I have visited Exeter West Greenwich Little League many times.  Exeter West Greenwich’s Joan Tourgee Field is located off Route 102/Ten Rod Road next to Wawaloam Elementary School.  Parking is available at the school for games and there is additional parking on the back side of the “big” field.  One of the things I love about playing at Tourgee field is the walk into the baseball field area.  A forest of trees serves as the perimeter for each of the three baseball fields on this complex.  It creates a picturesque backdrop to each field and I always enjoy that view when I visit these EWG fields.

Exeter West Greenwich Little League features a Little League® size field as you walk in. There are also two baseball fields located up a small hill via set of wooden stairs.  The Little League Field, marked Joan Tourgee Field, features plenty of seating along the first and third base lines.  There is a snack shack and restroom area right behind home plate.  There is plenty of sponsorship signage throughout the outfield fences as well as behind the dugouts.  I like when leagues put the sponsorship banners closer to the fans in the stands.  All three fields were in great playing condition when I played there this fall.  The volunteers of Exeter West Greenwich take a lot of pride in making sure their fields are in top playing condition.

I always enjoy visiting Exeter West Greenwich’s baseball complex on Route 102.  As a coach, I don’t always like the results of the games I participate in.  But, I do love the picturesque view of the woods as a natural backdrop to the fields.  The snack shack is awesome, the fields are always in great condition, the volunteers are always friendly.  Exeter West Greenwich Little League does a fantastic job with their program, their fields, and for supporting youth sports in Rhode Island.
