The Cardines Classic
Newport, Rhode Island
Sept 12 -13, 2015
Play at the Plate baseball is thrilled to announce that we will be travelling to historic Newport Rhode Island for a unique 2 day event at one of America’s oldest fields Cardines (Car-deens) Field located in the downtown area right on America’s Cup Blvd.
I traveled to Newport for the first time in November and fell in love with this quaint, historic town. The field is quirky and located on the main drag in town and the camp watering hole the Mudville Pub actually has its back porch sticking into foul territory in right field. We’ll be having our lunches there as well.
A few years ago a good client (Thanks Greg Goodman) mentioned this great site to us. I’m sorry it took so long to get there, but now that I have we are excited about bringing a small group to this unbelievably beautiful city. We are limiting the camp to just 3 Teams
You’ll play 4 games over the 2 days, go on a tour of the mansions that overlook the Atlantic Ocean and here’s the kicker….on Friday night you’ll be aboard the Adirondack 2 Schooner sailing around Narragansett Bay on a sunset cruise. They’ll have a cash bar on board and we’ll be the cheese and crackers…..
This trip is definitely one that you’ll want to bring your significant other to. We will have several camp hotels in place in a few weeks. The good news is there is no event happening that weekend in Newport so we may be able to get some lodging at a good price. Also, the Mudville Pub has some rooms that overlook the ball field that will they rent out….
This place rivals Palm Beach and New Orleans and if you have had the pleasure of being there you know what we are talking about. Sale starts today…again only 3 teams…..we don’t want to play anywhere else but Cardines…..
And the best news about this event is the price…..Just $395 per player!
