On the website http://www.change.org, you will find a petition entitled “Let Them Play.” Its goal is to present the Governor of Rhode Island with a responsible message regarding playing youth sports, like baseball, sooner than later. The authors, according to the petition are “The RHODE ISLAND Baseball Coalition is a group of baseball programs, organizations and industry leaders formed to support youth athletes, coaches, umpires and baseball businesses.”
If you would like to read the petition and perhaps sign your name, as I did last night, here is the link:
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.
