Today marks the official return of professional baseball to Rocky Point State Park as part of a promotional campaign. This was the first of what would be a double header vintage baseball game between the Providence Grays and the New York Mutuals.

It is a shame that most people today are unaware of the town’s baseball past. Historically, the Providence Greys took on the Chicago Cubs at the same venue. On that day, the slugger Babe Ruth pitched for Providence.
