As the 2021 Collegiate Baseball season winds down, student athletes turn their attention towards summer baseball leagues. Here in New England, we have so many outstanding summer baseball league opportunities for players. And some of the most highly regarded leagues in all of the United States, whose rosters include top Major League baseball prospects. In recent blogs, I have updated you on players from Rhode Island who have signed on to play for the prestigious New England Collegiate Baseball League, which has two Rhode Island teams, the Newport Gulls and the Ocean State Waves. Here is a list of players from Rhode Island and the leagues and teams they will be playing for this summer:
- Rob Butler, Foster, RI – Hamptons Collegiate Baseball League, Shelter Island Bucks
- Zack Clesas, Johnston, RI – Futures Collegiate Baseball League, Brockton Sox
- Max Pierce, Scituate, RI – Futures Collegiate Baseball League, Brockton Sox

If any other Rhode Island collegiate baseball player pops up on my summer baseball league radar, I will be sure to update my list. And if you are a player or parent or coach that would like to promote a player who has joined a summer baseball league here or elsewhere, feel free to email me at email@example.com.
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.
