Burrillville Little League coach receives Red Sox Foundation’s Volunteer of the Year Award


BOSTON – A Burrillville Little League coach was one of six coaches and administrators from across New England to receive the Red Sox Foundation’s 2022 Mike Egan Volunteer of the Year Award at a pregame ceremony this week at Fenway Park.

Scott Singleton of Burrillville was honored for his volunteer work in the local league, in recognition of his efforts to provide a better youth baseball and softball experience.

Singleton has coached BLL’s majors and junior/senior divisions regular season and all star teams for the last five seasons. He has also spent three seasons as assistant coach for the AAU baseball team the Stone Crabs, out of Cumberland.

“Scott has made countless opportunities for the youth in his community, and the Red Sox Foundation is proud to recognize him for his commitment to grow the game,” noted a release on the honor. “He is a coach who never misses practice and is a true leader who teaches good sportsmanship by modeling it every day.”

Singleton, who is a master certified diesel technician working on 18 wheelers five to six days a week for Rivers Edge Truck & Trailer Repair, was nominated for the award by his sons, who he also coaches.

The awards were presented on Saturday, Sept. 17 to one volunteer from each state in New England, honored during a pregame ceremony before the Red Sox game vs. The Royals at Fenway Park.
