The Rhode Island Men’s Senior Baseball League season waited, like most recreational sports here in RI, for the OK to play sports this summer. Players, like their sons or daughters, stayed as active as they could until the all important notice came through that Phase III of the ReOpeningRI plan was to take effect in July. League play started for the RIMSBL Boys of Summer around the 2nd week of July for the 30, 40, and 50 year old divisions. And it continues into September and early October for these baseball players, who may not run or throw or hit as well as their sons or daughters do. But their competitive spirit and love of baseball has never wavered and continues to propel them two to three times a week to lace up those cleats, don the baseball jerseys, and attempt to fit into those stretchy baseball pants.
Here is a snapshot of the current standings for each division, taken from the official website of the Rhode Island Men’s Senior Baseball League – www.leageez.com/league/RIMSBL.

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.
