Like many baseball and sports organizations in Rhode Island, The 2020 George Donnelly Sunset League season did not start on schedule. In fact, I was just looking through some old emails with Commissioner Chris LaRose to see when the 2020 GDSL season actually began. It was Wednesday, July 8th. This year’s GDSL season looks to be on par schedule wise like in years prior to 2020. The official start of the season will be Monday, May 17th featuring Rathskeller vs. Brother’s at famed Cardines Field in Newport.
There are five teams scheduled to compete in the 2021 George Donnelly Sunset League:
- R & R Construction
- Town Dock
Each team will play 12 regular season games at one of three fields – Cardines Field, Newport; Cranston Stadium, Cranston, Sprague Field, Narragansett – with the majority of games at Cardines. You can view schedules, stats, rosters, and more on the official website of the George Donnelly Sunset League (click link). This will be the GDSL’s 102nd season. Wow, what a historic league and accomplishment.
As rosters become available online, I will highlight some of the local Rhode Island baseball talent that will be playing in this year’s GDSL. Good luck to all the players, coaches, and families participating this summer.
