The Ocean State Waves Take the Field

South County's amateur baseball team kicks off its 2017 season at home on June 6 against the Keene Swamp Bats


The Red Sox’s season may be well under way, but here at home the action is just getting started. This month marks the beginning of the 2017 season for the New England Collegiate Baseball League, featuring two Rhode Island home teams to root for. In South County we’ve got our own Ocean State Waves, who will be welcoming the Keene Swamp Bats to Old Mountain Field for the first of 22 home games on June 6.

For a big Rhody showdown, be sure to save the date for when the Waves cross the bridge and square off against the Newport Gulls on June 21. No matter who you’re pulling for, we can all agree that there’s no better way to spend a summer night than at a ball game.
