Below is the directory of amateur adult baseball leagues containing more than 80 teams in Rhode Island.

The George Donnelly Sunset League plays its games at Cardines Field in Newport, Rhode Island. Play began in 1919 when the New York, New Haven, and Hartford Railroad gave permission to a group of its employees to establish the Sunset League. The Sunset League is so named because games began at 5:30 P.M. and ended at dusk. Still playing games today, but now with lights, the Sunset League is the oldest continuous amateur baseball league in the United States.

A 20-game schedule plus playoffs begins first week of May and ends late August. All games are played at Cardines Field in Newport.
