The Rhode Island Baseball Experience

Promoting Rhode Island Baseball Since 1972

The New England Collegiate Baseball League (NECBL) is a 14 team summer baseball organization that features top collegiate talent playing on some of the best baseball fields in New England. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and like a lot of other summer baseball organizations, the NECBL did not have a season in 2020. The anticipation for 2021 has been ramping up over the past few months and just today I spotted the official 2021 game schedule on their website, www.necbl.com. The schedule can be downloaded into your calendar on your phone or computer, just like this:

According to the NECBL’s game schedule page, opening day/night for the 2021 season is Thursday June 3. The season will run through June and into the first week of August. Rhode Island has two teams in the NECBL – the Newport Gulls and the Ocean State Waves. You can find their individual game schedules by clicking the links here (games and times are subject to change):

As with seasons passed, there are a number of Rhode Island born players who will play this summer in the New England Collegiate Baseball League. As of today, April 15th, here is a list of players from Rhode Island who will be on NECBL teams this summer:

  • Matt Woods, Martha’s Vineyard Sharks
  • Sean Sposato, Mystic Schooners
  • Addison Kopack, Mystic Schooners
  • Bo Brutti, Newport Gulls
  • Alex Ramirez, Ocean State Waves

Rosters can change from week to week, so stay tuned for more updates on Rhode Island players added to these NECBL teams. Here are a few games I will be looking forward to:

  • June 3rd – Opening night for the Newport Gulls @ Valley Blue Sox

No word yet on whether fans will be allowed to attend games. As more details become available regarding fans, live TV streaming services, tickets, etc, I will be sure to post here and on my social media pages. Whether it is in person or online or on my phone, I am excited to follow the games and the awesomeness of the New England Collegiate Baseball League.
