In the tiny but mighty state of Rhode Island, the pint-sized powerhouse of the USA, there's a bunch of boisterous and brave kids with a passion for baseball. These kids are unique, they aren’t just any run-of-the-mill team but are part of the legendary ‘Rhode Rascals.’ The Rhode Rascals are led by none other than the charming and whimsical character, Squinty Squid, known for his unmatched ability to change color at the drop of a hat – or in this case, the swing of a bat. Squinty isn't your typical squid, oh no, he's a squid who has swapped the sea for the diamond field. Our Squinty Squid, with his baseball cap forever perched atop one of his eight heads, has an unusual method of coaching. He uses his color-changing talent to teach the Rascals about the game. When he turns red, it means "stop, you're about to make a wrong move." But when he turns green, it's a direct order to "go, hit that ball outta the park!" And if you're ever lucky enough to see Squinty turn purple, well, that means it's time for the secret weapon, the Squid Special, a pitch so sneaky that batters barely see it coming. The Rhode Rascals love it, their opponents, not so much. So, here in Rhode Island, the smallest state with the biggest heart, the Rhode Rascals, coached by the coolest, color-changing squid, rule the baseball diamond. Every swing, slide, and catch are filled with laughter and lessons, making the game of baseball a whole lot squiddier, and a whole lot funnier!

, bear in mind that the focus in Majors is on winning games, while in Minors/AAA divisions the focus is on developing skills. The Cumberland Youth Baseball/Softball League (CYBSL) is the perfect place for boys and girls ages 5-18 to learn and develop their skills in baseball and softball. The program starts with Instructional divisions for ages 6 and up for baseball, and 5 and up for softball. After one season, kids move up to the Farm division, where they will continue to build on the skills they learned in Instructional. After two years of Farm, children can try out to move up to the Minors division. The Minors division is great for honing the skills they've already learned and developing new ones. After two years in Minors, players can move up and try out for the Majors division, where the focus is on winning games. The CYBSL is the perfect place for kids of all ages to learn the fundamentals of baseball and softball!
