So If We Win, Where Do We Play Next – A Rhode Island Little League Roadmap

As we sit here in the middle of July, the 2022 Rhode Island Little League District All Star season is well underway. Teams from Districts 1, 2, 3, and 4 are competing in or have completed district all star games for the 10U, 11U, 12U, 50/70, Juniors, and Seniors Divisions. Some have even won Rhode Island Little League State Titles. The weather has cooperated for the most part, the crowds have been incredible, the play on the field is just amazing considering the high stress level of District All Star play. Huge thanks to all the Rhode Island Baseball Community members for messaging me photos and updates on your District’s brackets so I can share them with everyone else.

Now there is the question, “So If We Win, Where Do We Play Next?” which pops up from time to time at Wilson Park or Dow Field or Whipple Field or Bentley Field. Every year, Rhode Island Little League chooses a state tournament site for each division’s state tournament. This year, the state tournaments will be held at:

  • 10U – Chariho Little League’s Dow Field
  • 11U – Darlington American Little League, Slater Park
  • 12U – North Providence Little League, Romano Field
  • 50/70 – played at Warwick Continental American Little League; East Greenwich has won the states and is now moving on to the Regionals in Commack, NY
  • Juniors – Smithfield Little League, Whipple Field
  • Seniors – played at Exeter-West Greenwich Little League; South Kingstown has won the states and is now moving on to the Regionals in Bangor, ME

Next steps in the question “So If We Win, Where Do We Play Next?” are the regional tournaments which are scheduled to be played here in Rhode Island, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maine, New York, and New Jersey. Here is where the 2022 Rhode Island State Champions will move on to:

  • 10U – Eastern Regionals, Cranston Western Little League, Varrato Field
  • 11U – Eastern Regionals, Beverly Little League, Beverly, MA
  • 12U – Metro Region Tournament, A. Bartlett Giamatti Little League Leadership Training Center, Bristol, CT
  • 50/70 – Eastern Regionals, Commack, NY
  • Juniors – Eastern Regionals, Michael J. Tighe Park, Freehold, NJ
  • Seniors – Eastern Regionals, Bangor, ME

One more step to go in the “So If We Win, Where Do We Play Next?” game here. The national tournaments for Little League end for the 10U and 11U divisions at the Regional level. However, the national tournaments for the 12U, 50/70, Juniors, and Seniors move on to Pennsylvania, South Carolina, California, and Michigan. Here is where the 2022 Eastern Regional Champions will move on to:

  • 12U – Little League® World Series, Williamsport, Pennsylvania (come on you knew that!!!)
  • 50/70 – Intermediate World Series, Max Bear Park, Livermore, California
  • Juniors – Junior League World Series, Heritage Park, Taylor, Michigan
  • Seniors – Senior League World Series, J.B. Red Owens Sports Complex, Easley, South Carolina

You can find out who is playing where and against whom and at what time at the Regionals and National tournaments for most of these Divisions at Many of the Eastern Regional Tournaments (10U and 11U) have active social media pages and update every day on scores, schedules, times, and teams to play next. I hope this article helps your question of “So If We Win, Where Do We Play Next?” and I hope to see Rhode Island teams filling up those regional and national brackets very soon!!! Good luck to all the players, coaches, and families participating in 2022 Rhode Island Little League District All Star Tournaments.
