  • Rheal Cormier Jersey Retirement Ceremony
  • Major League Baseball scouts are drawn to Whitey Fell Field at the Knight Campus in Warwick for many reasons. CCRI’s baseball team is consistently a nationally ranked program and NJCAA Division II powerhouse, regularly recruits top-flight talent, has won 11 NJCAA Region XXI titles and has cultivated future professional players such as Rheal Cormier, Allen Levrault, Brad Hertzler and Tom Gavitt. Head coach Ken Hopkins, a former CCRI player and the college’s all-time wins leader, has built a challenging program that includes fall ball against collegiate competition and preseason games against competition in Florida and North Carolina. In 2016, the team finished the season with a 16-13 record. The Knights have an overall program record of 1,080-442-3. In 2012 the Knights won the Region XXI and East district championships earning them a trip to the Division II World Series for the first time since 1996. The program continues to attract elite players from local, regional, national and even international ranks.
