Rhode Island baseball

Micheal has been exploring the community of Rhode Island, documenting local people’s lifelong careers and passions.

Among the stories of people with special connections to their communities are local legend Bob Dickerman (pictured) and Micheal’s own brother, Mark McLaughlin, associate head of school and baseball coach at Providence Country Day School.

Mark has coached baseball at Providence for 25 years with Bob, who has coached at the school since 1957 and is a legend in New England baseball. He has been a mentor to Mark for many years and still throws batting practice in his 80s.

In summer, they coach a team together in the Connie Mack League, an amateur baseball league. Baseball keeps them both young and involved in a game they love.
