I received a message and link yesterday from NEAAU and RI Ray’s Mike Giard regarding an upcoming AAU Tournament here in Rhode Island. The 2022 AAU Baseball Summer Blast Tournament, according to Mike, will take place the weekend of August 6th and 7th (weather permitting, do I still have to say that?). This Summer Blast tournament showcases top baseball talent from Rhode Island AAU organizations as well as neighboring states. There are 3 divisions – 12U, 13U, 14U – that will compete in pool play on Saturday and then playoffs on Sunday. All games are played right here in Rhode Island on fields in North Kingstown, Cranston, and Providence. Here are the teams, snipped from the official schedule page on Tourney Machine – Summer Blast 2022 – who will be competing next weekend:
