John Gorham Athletic Field is home to Rhode Island’s Scituate Foster Little League. Scituate Foster plays in District 4. The field is located off Route 101 or Hartford Pike in Scituate, RI just passed the Route 6/Hartford Pike split. Gorham Field is a beautiful complex with wooden backdrop that surrounds two baseball fields. There is plenty of seating along each baseline. Parking is available as you pull into the complex. And there is a huge snack shack and concession area that features two scoreboards, each facing a baseball field. That was really cool.
When I visit the great baseball fields of Rhode Island, I always look for unique plaques, memorials, or other eye catching signs. I had visited Gorham in the early part of fall, so I am guessing their volunteers had removed sponsorship signage throughout the park. But I did see one sign that caught my eye. It was a parking spot sign entitled “Reserved Parking for Alicia.” Interesting.
Gorham Field feature 2 baseball fields, both in really nice shape. There was a batting cage behind the first field on the right of the snack shack. The grounds overall were really impressive with the wooden backdrop surrounding the field. And Gorham was easy to get to and there was plenty of space for spectators and parking.
It was a great visit to John Gorham Athletic Field and Scituate Foster Little League. To learn more about Scituate Foster Little League and their upcoming season, visit their website at www.scituatefosterlittleleague.com.
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.
