Although the Graham Insurance (WW) Connie Mack team boasts the youngest of twenty teams competing in the Rhode Island Connie Mack League, they continue their competitive play and positive outlook in each game this season.  The "Black and Orange" have had some solid efforts this season.  See the West Warwick Connie Mack page for the highlights of the 2014 season.
