I got an update email from tournament director Chris Charette last night regarding this weekend’s exciting 10U Joe Charette Memorial Tournament. Here is more from Chris:
The stage is set for the weekend matchups. Great games to be played starting with a rematch of #2 Rumford vs #3 Narragansett. Rumford edged their way to a win 3-2 in pool play and Gansett looked very strong last night over Chariho. Warwick Continental is sitting waiting for the winner of #4 Chariho vs #5 EG. All are welcome to come down to Dow Field 1118 Main Street, Hope Valley to watch some great 10U baseball and to grab one of the concessions delicious dough boys!
Dow Field is located on 1118 Main St, Hope Valley. There is plenty of parking in the front lot next to the main field and next to the “big” field and softball field. The concession stand has a deck and picnic tables. There are bleachers spread out around the field or you can bring your own lawn chair. Dow Field is a great place to watch a ball game and this weekend’s tournament should be incredible baseball. And Chris and his staff of volunteers do an incredible job running these youth baseball tournaments. Good luck to all the players, coaches, and families participating. I will look to update scores as they become available to me.
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.
