Ocean State Waves News – Brew Tour, Interns, and Host Family Info

The Ocean State Waves are a summer collegiate baseball organization in the New England Collegiate Baseball League (NECBL). They operate year round and when they are not playing baseball, they are providing updates on incoming players, promoting local businesses, hosting events, and so much more. I get a email update from them on their latest news and follow them on social media as well. Here are a few Ocean State Waves items of interest I read about recently:

The host family program is a summer tradition for collegiate baseball leagues, like the NECBL. Players travel from all over New England and the United States from top collegiate baseball programs to play here in Rhode Island. Many do not have a family member living close by, so they rely on a host family for their summer league season. When I go to Waves games, the host families are always the loudest and the most enthusiastic. They are not hard to spot, I see them in the bleachers behind home plate, out in right field just passed the outfield netting, and in the parking lots with their lawn chairs. If you or someone you know would like to learn more about the host family program this summer and host an Ocean State Waves player, you can contact Jen Wokoske and/or Leslie Bowers.

Like the host family program, the summer baseball league internship program is another tradition in these collegiate baseball summer leagues. College students flock to these summer leagues to gain valuable time learning real life job skills like marketing, community outreach, communications, operations, time management, and so much more. The interns run the cameras, oversee the social media pages, are out on the field in between innings engaging fans. Are you or do you know someone who could benefit from a summer internship with the Ocean State Waves? Send your resume to oceanstatewaves@gmail.com and get ready to spend an incredible summer with the Waves organization.
