I read this incredibly inspiring post in my Facebook group page “Something Off” this week from Rumford Little League President Eddie Wencis and wanted to share it with you. Rumford Little League, in addition to providing excellent youth baseball programs every year since 1951, also hosts post Spring, post District All Star tournaments at their baseball complex. The Scott Grace and the Wounded Warrior Tournaments require a ton of community support, volunteers, and hard work to manage every year. And every year, these tournaments hosted and run by Rumford Little League are some of the best attended and most memorable of all the summer youth baseball tournaments here in Rhode Island baseball. Here is more from Rumford Little League and Eddie Wencis on this year’s successful Wounded Warrior Tournament:
“We are extremely proud to announce the final tally for our Wounded Warrior Tournament this summer. We were able to raise over $3,000 for this incredible cause!! thank you to all the teams, volunteers and our phenomenal league for all their hard work and dedication! The Rumford Community was out in full force helping over the weekend in the shack and on the grounds. We have a beautiful facility thanks to our volunteers and the city of EP!”
Thank you Eddie and to all the Rumford Little League board members and volunteers for making youth sports and community service and charity a priority in your community. You are all winners, you are all All-Stars in my book and I appreciate all that you do for the Rhode Island Baseball Community!!!
