The George Donnelly Sunset League is one of the oldest baseball traditions in Rhode Island. The league has been in operation for over 100 years (101 to be exact) and up until this summer had played its games primarily at Cardines Field, Newport. Due to demands of Cardines and the “new normal” we are all living with, the Sunset League is now playing games at several locations. Cardines Field is once again seeing game action and this summer The Sunset League has added games at Sprague Park, Narragansett and North Providence High School. Top local talent from New England colleges, sometimes high schools, compete in the Sunset League.
This summer, 2020, there are 6 teams competing in the Sunset League. They are:
- Brother’s Baseball Club
- Town Dock
- R & R Construction
- R & R Legion
The league has a website which showcases games, standings, schedules, and more. There is Covid-19 safety information. There is a roster of each team, so you can check out your favorite Rhode Island player. You can check out player stats and more.

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.
