At every Rhode Island and Southern New England baseball field or facility I visit, I try to capture a few photos and perhaps video to share with others. I have visited well over 100 baseball fields and facilities here in Rhode Island alone. Some of them through my “Trek Around RI Baseball Fields,” some attending local youth baseball tournaments, some just randomly driving through a town and spotting a field and stopping in. Although each field has 2 baselines, dugout area, outfield, a pitcher’s mound and a home plate, I truly believe that every single field is unique in their own way. The same can be said for the indoor facilities – large, medium, small, individualized, team based – all have their special place in the Rhode Island baseball community.
I am in the process now of uploading all of my photos to a new page here on the Rhode Island Baseball Experience website – Field and Facilities Photo Gallery – which will host my entire collection of photos from Rhode Island baseball fields, indoor sports facilities, out of state ballparks, NECBL fields around New England, and any other baseball related spot I travel to. It will include a portfolio slideshow of the fields, some of their unique qualities, memorial plaques, and other special features of that location.
If you see a field or facility on this new RIBBE page that you have played on, visited, attended a game at – Great!!! Send me a message and I will share it (unanimous if you prefer) with my Rhode Island Baseball community. I hope you enjoy these photos and images and it brings back positive memories for you and your family. And if you have a great photo of a local Rhode Island baseball field or facility that you would like me to share on this page, please send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
