Field Address & Parking:
Berkeley-Peckham field (a.k.a War Memorial Field) is on Green End Ave in Middletown RI. You can drop your stuff off at the field but highly recommend parking in the lot behind the school (highlighted in yellow).

There’s plenty of room back there and its free of foul balls. Please do not block the gate in the back of the building and always be sure to clean up after ourselves.

Google Directions Player/Waiting List is Open! Can’t commit to a full season? IBL has a sub list available for players like you. Sub players are selected weekly on a per demand basis. Subs can expect to play around 5 games a season and sometimes pull double headers (if interested).. If you are looking to sub and haven’t signed up you can do so here. Rainouts and Cancellations:

Be sure to follow Island Baseball on twitter if you haven’t already. This is where cancellations, rain outs, and important IBL news will be posted. If you do not have a twitter account, there is a feed on our website. Rain outs are usually posted 2hrs in advance.
