Jim Leeke — AABP
In partnership with the U.S. Naval War College, we’re pleased to announce the new site of our World War I centennial baseball game. We’ll play on July 4, 2018, at Cardines Field in Newport, Rhode Island, home of the Newport Gulls. Learn more about this historic ballpark here.
We’ll celebrate the US-UK alliance that baseball helped to secure in London in 1918. And we’ll honor the soldiers, sailors and marines who fought in the war (and played a little ball along the way) exactly 100 years ago.
Cardines Field is accessible for many American fans, especially those in the Northeast. And we hope that some of our British baseball friends also will visit us and take in the game. It wouldn’t be the same without them.
We’ll let you know on this website once we've determined the time of the first pitch and other last details. Meanwhile, we’re looking forward to an amazing Fourth in Newport!
