The 2018 Christopher Andreozzi Baseball Tournament started on Saturday, July 28th, at Darlington American Little League’s, Slater Park Pawtucket. There are 14 Teams from around Rhode Island!! The tournament features 7 & 8 Year old All Stars! And according to Darlington American’s Karen Kelly-Kane, “This is Best Tournament in Rhode Island!!!”
I asked Karen about the tournament. “It is a Memorial Tournament in honor of a former Darlington American player that died in a work accident when he was 21. His dad had been heavily involved in our LL and his son played tball to senior league. The tournament has been in existence since 1999 and is played every year in memory of Christopher Andreozzi.”
There are 14 teams participating: Barrington LL, Bristol LL, CLCF, Cumberland LL, Johnston LL, Lincoln LL, Middletown LL, Pineview LL, Portsmouth LL, Riverside LL, Rumford LL, Smithfield LL, Warwick Continental LL and Darlington American LL of course.
Good luck to all the players, coaches, families and fans this week in the 2018 Christopher Andreozzi Baseball Tournament!!!
The RIBBE is The Rhode Island Baseball Experience. It is promoting the game of baseball here in the great state of Rhode Island for the entire baseball world to see. The RIBBE is positive stories, photos, videos, and responsible social media posts. The RIBBE is an information resource for families looking for an AAU team or a summer camp or a great place to buy a first baseman’s mitt. The RIBBE is a network of coaches, tournament directors, parents, leagues, and baseball junkies whose passion of the game of baseball is unquestioned. I believe that providing expert analysis, information and directions to ballfields, and coaching advice from some of the top RI baseball minds will help promote the game of baseball here in RI to a whole new level.
