Middle Essex Softball League 2015

This page was last updated on Thursday at 10:35 AM

The office of the Middle Essex Softball League is moving north by about 200 miles for awhile!  I will check emails each day, usually late morning or so.   

Division 10B -- Attention teams scheduled to play at Lynnfield:  The location of their home games has been moved.  Master Schedule has been updated.  Also, one 12B game in Lynnfield was moved (7/23). 

Also the times of several games at Lynn Warriors 14B have been changed from 7:15 to 6:15 

I am pleased to announce that Billerica has been chosen as the site to hold this year's All Star games on August 1st.  All teams are strongly encouraged to participate in this annual event.  If for some reason you will not be able to send players, you must opt out, by sending an email to the league before July 15th to avoid sanctions. 

DIVISION CHAMPIONSHIPS:  The following chart represents the number of champions that will be declared per Division.  Because teams don't play against all opponents, the championships are decided simply by earning one of the top winning percentages.  18A= 1, 18B= 2, 14A= 2, 14B= 3, 12A= 2, 12B= 4, 10B= 4.  Good Luck to all teams. 

  From this point forward we will be enforcing the rule that says you must play by your schedule or take a forfeit.  {Possible exceptions for local All Star play - Seek approval if this applies to your team}. 

Instructions for posting scores can be found in the coaches packet.  Please post the score within 24 hours!

AT NO TIME... should anyone attempt to add a schedule to the website for any reason. 

Come one come all:  Please consider joining us for Middle Essex Softball League night at Fenway Park on Tuesday August 18th as the Red Sox take on the Cleveland Indians.  Tickets will be $27 each for outfield Grandstand.  You can order tickets as a team, family or individual.  Everyone is welcome.  To order tickets, send an email to with the subject line "Red Sox Tickets"  provide your name, team and other contact information along with the number of tickets you would like.   I will reply and give you an order number and  instructions for payment.  Orders will be accepted until July 15th.  This deadline will not be extended.

THE SCHEDULE... is now declared official.  It's been a long time coming, sorry for the delay.  - So that we are all on the same page, each team should print a new schedule and discard any previous versions dated before Sunday 6/21 at 8:00 PM.   Requests for changes beyond week one will likely be denied. As teams report new dates for the rain-outs, the master schedule gets updated accordingly. - It is a good idea to keep an eye on this, so there are no surprises. 

COACHES: Please log into the ADMIN side of your site and then select Welcome Mesg. from the menu.  That will open up the text field where you can type a welcome message for your team that must include a reference to 2015.  Your page must also show the names and contact info for two coaches.  This should be done by now for all teams.  7 teams have not complied with this request.  I cannot play 4-1-1 operator.  Please get this done.  Some of the sites are nicely personalized by the way...

WALL OF SHAME: -- For the above 7 teams whose sites do not meet the minimum standard as noted above.   18B - Boston/Brighton and Melrose Red Raiders. - 14A Withrop Vikings. - 14B  Chelmsford Blue Crush,- 12A  North Reading Hornets,(come on Hornets.... representing the home town!!)  12B - Acton-Boxboro Lightning, Marblehead Magicians (Says both 2015 and 2012), --    Let's get these cleared up today! Almost there... you can do this... or maybe someone else, a parent or even a responsible player would enjoy this work.

If you add players to your website, you must use full names.  Ashley B. becomes too confusing... Those with just initials will be deleted.

A new rule was voted in at the annual meeting for 10B.  Corner infielders (1B and 3B) and the pitcher are now required to wear a protective face guard.  The league strongly encourages their use in other Divisions.

When a player contacts me looking for a place to play, I always suggest they post a notice in the guestbook section of the website.  Coaches, if you need a body or two, this might be a good resource for you. 

The registration fee will remain at $475/per team this year.  An increase is planned for next year.

Save the date! The All Star Games will be played on August 1st.
