Game Day – Salve Regina vs Johnson and Wales at Beck Field, URI – Saturday March 5

Today, Saturday March 5th, is the opening day for two Rhode Island collegiate baseball programs. Salve Regina University, Newport and Johnson & Wales University- Providence will open their 2022 baseball seasons today – against each other. This series of games was supposed to be played last weekend, but was postponed due to weather (you remember that ice storm on Friday???). Despite game time temperatures expected in the 40s, Salve vs JWU will kick off around 11am today. The teams will meet at URI’s Bill Beck Field in Kingston. Check out these amazing videos and photos that I saw on the social media pages of Salve Baseball and JWU Baseball leading up to today’s matchup:

On JWU PVD Instagram Page – Big thanks and shout out to @crocs for the gear drop right before Opening Day!
On Salve Baseball’s Instagram page – 3 days left to Opening Day!

Amazing work done by the sports information, media relations, and team photographers/videographers from each school. There is clearly a ton of talent on the field and in the press boxes for each school. And as far as baseball talent on the field from Rhode Island, check out this list of players:

  • Patrick Maybach, Salve Regina – North Kingstown
  • Carter Grimm, Salve Regina – Middletown
  • Gianfranco Messina, Salve Regina – Cranston
  • Ryan O’Donnell, Salve Regina – North Kingstown
  • Cameron Armenti, JWU – Warwick
  • Jake McDonough, JWU – Smithfield
  • Nicolas Fortes, JWU – Cranston
  • My apologies if I missed someone, I got the names off the rosters online for each school.

So, 11am game time – Salve vs JWU, Beck Field, Kingston. Beck Field is windy 365 days a year so plan on dressing accordingly. I am planning on going down to Beck at some point today to catch some RI baseball and I will be posting photos and comments on my social media pages as well.

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.
