Built in memory of former Rhode Island baseball and football coach, Bill Beck Field originally opened in 1966 and has since served as the home of the Rams. In November of 2007, an anonymous donor pledged $1-million to the Rhode Island Baseball Program in order to initiate facility renovations that are designed to equip the Rams with one of the finest ballparks in all of New England! Seventeen months and $1.4-million dollars later, the 2009 Rhode Island Baseball Program had a completely resurfaced field consisting of the same artificial Field Turf used by the Minnesota Twins, Tampa Bay Rays and Toronto Blue Jays. Also included in the renovation project, we received a new backstop, scoreboard, fencing and bullpens. Aside from providing URI with an outstanding competitive advantage, the improved facility also requires significantly less maintenance; which, in turn, allows the team to spend more time on the field throughout the year. After additional fundraising goals are met, the Rams plan to install lighting and stadium style seating!
Registration begins at 5:00pm at the Hitting Barn on right field side of field on Tuesday August 27th
