Happy Summer Sunday in July everyone. Wow, we have Ocean State Waves vs Newport Gulls in the Pell Bridge Series to chat about. Rachel and I attended a Cape Cod Baseball League game last night featuring the Wareham Gatemen vs the Yarmouth-Dennis Red Sox (with RIC’s Shaun Gamelin in the bullpen.) Rhode Island District All Star games were played all over the state yesterday. Boston Open 2022 has a ton of RI teams representing RI baseball and performing at really high level. NEAAU Super Division 14U clubs battling it out to make it to today’s semifinals and finals games. More AAU, Travel, and Showcase team tryouts announced. Lot to discuss, so let’s let the photos do the talking.
Wow, have a day @banditsbaseballri 16U club! Look at those eye popping stats facing top competition in the 2022 Boston Open. Complete games by both pitchers, Torres with the no-no, tons of RBIs, multi-hit games. Way to represent RI baseball – Ocean State Bandits!!!
Great catching up with RIC’s Shaun Gamelin, who was in the bullpen for the Yarmouth-Dennis Red Sox tonight. Awesome RI baseball talent and wow what an opportunity for Shaun this summer in the Cape Cod Baseball League! Game was at Spillane Field, home of the Wareham Gatemen, and just a block or two from my Mom’s childhood home on Sawyer St.
Wareham Gatemen vs Yarmouth-Dennis Red Sox, left field bleacher view of the Cape Cod Baseball League. What a night of incredible baseball. The talent on the field was beyond words.
Getting a ton of tryout information for AAU, Travel, and Showcase Tournament teams for 2023. I will post them all on my social media pages as soon as I get them in. Here is one for the RI Rays Baseball Club, that will be held in North Kingstown on Saturday August 13th. Click on the QR code for further details.
Had my eye on social media posts last night while I was in Wareham – Waves with the 4-0 win over the Gulls to even the Pell Bridge Series. By the way, both teams are having tremendous seasons and the fans have really been coming out in big numbers to watch this top baseball talent all summer long. Waves travel to MV today to take on the Sharks. The Gulls are home tomorrow night at Cardines vs North Shore Navigators.

Great article spotlighting just some of the players who have played in the New England Collegiate Baseball League and went on to play professional baseball in “The Show.” Wherever you live in New England, make it a point this summer to catch an NECBL game. Like the article suggests, who will be #200?
