Coach Cody Ortega of the New England Scorpions Baseball Club has been a constant contributor to the Rhode Island Baseball Experience. Coach Ortega and his organization consistently groom and produce talented baseball players, showcase well in local and national tournaments, and provide the RI baseball family with a very positive experience. I met Cody a few years back when his young players from RI Prospects were assisting another RI Challenger Division team at 365 Sports in Warren. It has been great staying in touch with Cody and learning about his players progressing to the next levels of baseball and life.

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.
