I have been granted an incredible opportunity to walk the hallways of McCoy Stadium and inhale some amazing baseball stories. The hallways from the corporate offices of the Pawtucket Red Sox, leading down through the kitchen area, executive offices, and into the clubhouse area of McCoy are lined with sports memorabilia and community service plaques from floor to ceiling. Commemorative bats, baseballs, autographed photos, special event posters, memorable game tickets – the list goes on and on. Community service awards for giving back to the communities of Rhode Island and Massachusetts for close to 50 years adorn these walls. Years and years of doing the right thing and using their “star power” to make someone or a community better. These are the stories I plan on sharing with you in the coming weeks.
You can follow along this walk down the hallways of the Pawtucket Red Sox via this blog site as well as my social media pages. Special thanks to Joe Bradlee, Director of Operations & Community Relations for the Pawtucket Red Sox for this opportunity.
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.
