Middle Essex Softball League 2017

This page was last updated:  Thursday at 8:55 PM

Saturday, June 24th is the day coaches should pick up league materials at my home between 9:00 AM and 3:00 PM.  The address is 67 Burroughs Road, North Reading -- It's the third house on the right past the playground.  It's on the corner of Lakeside Blvd.  Towns should coordinate so not everyone has to come out, but since we start Monday, all teams will need their stuff!   There's a kids fishing derby at the pond on Saturday morning...keep an eye out, this is usually a very well attended event.

SCHEDULE: As of 2:00 PM on June 17th, the schedule is declared official and has been sent to the umpire assigners.  Please discard any previous versions of the schedule so there are no surprises.  If there are changes beyond this point, they will be posted here. 

CHAMPIONSHIPS:  Your mission is to play your schedule and attempt to have one of the best records in your Division.  Everyone's schedule is different by design:  Here are the number of Championships that will be awarded:  18A= 1, 18B= 2, 14A= 2, 14B= 3, 12A= 2, 12B= 4, 10U= 3.  Good luck! 

LOCATION CHANGE:  Some of the Ipswich 12B games have been move to Ipswich Middle School. 

LOCATION CHANGE:  Mill City (Lowell) will now play all its home games at McPherson Field.  Dates will reman the same.  The schedule has been changed to reflect the new location.  This applies to 18B, 14B and 12B. 

LOCATION CHANGE: The Triton Tide 12B team will now play its home games at Newbury Elementary School. 

LOCATION CHANGE:  The Newton 10U team will now play its home games at Cold Spring Park. 

REMINDER:  Payment for all teams was due Thursday, June 1st... Now very much overdue... Thanks. OVER $15,000 is still owed three weeks beyond the DEADLINE!

UMPIRES:  The updated list of umpire assigners has been added to the HANDOUTS sections.  There have been a few shifts in territories. 

CONGRATULATIONS:  To Whitney Good of Gloucester; She is this year's winner of the Senior Scholarship Award.  She is a great kid and the perfect recipient.  Whitney will attend Lesley University in the fall. 

INSTRUCTIONS: 67% of our teams have a properly updated website.  Your site MUST display the names and contact info of your coaching staff and your site MUST say 2017, even if it's the same info as another year.  To update your page, click on the red ADMIN tab below the menu on your team site.  Log in.  Select Welcome Mesg. This brings you to an open text box where you can enter your updated information.  Be sure to click save at the bottom of the page when you're done.   How long until the above number reaches 100%? -- If you are having trouble with site access, please send an email. This must be done before collecting your league materials on Saturday. 

WALL OF SHAME:  The following teams need to address their welcome message by following the above instructions:  18A - Andover Navy, East Boston Waves, Seabrook Nighthawks - 18B - Everett Riptide, Marlborough Diamondcats, Medford Mustangs, Melrose Red Raiders, Methuen Majesty Blue, Mill City Brawlers, Saugus Shamrocks, Wakefield Warriors - 14A -Billerica Bratz, Seabrook Nighthawks - 14B -  Concord Carlisle Patriots, Danvers Falcons, Haverhill Hillcats, Mill City Brawlers, Somerville Tsunami, Stoneham Spartans, Tewksbury Redmen Blue, Waltham Summer Hawks - 12A - Bedford, Danvers Falcons, Lexington Liberty, Lynn Hornets, Seabrook Nighthawks, Tewksbury Red Storm - 12B - Chalestown Townies, Danvers Falcons, Dracut Middlie White, Lynnfield Polar Bears, Medford Wolf Pack, Methuen Majesty Blue, Mill City Brawlers, North Shore Riptide, Salem Wiches 2, Saugus Sachems, So.

INSURANCE DEADLINE HAS PASSED:  Once your roster is established, you can arrange to purchase ASA insurance for your players.  You should also insure at least one coach for liability reasons.  In the HANDOUTS section you'll find a cheat sheet to guide you through the process.  Players who already have insurance will not be charged again.  DEADLINE for insurance was June 19th. - TEAMS WITHOUT INSURED PLAYERS CANNOT BE ALLOWED TO PLAY! 

WHEN ADDING people to your website, be sure to use full names.  Wilma F. is not good enough.  Ask your people to accept the invitation when it comes.  It's not required to add people to your site, but some teams do. I am deleting names that come in as such...

PROTECT YOUR FACE:  At the annual meeting we added a safety rule requiring pitchers, first basemen and thirdbaseman to wear a face guard in both 12A and 12B.  That rule is already in place in the 10's.

10U DIVISION:  The 10's has been combined into one Division. 

The All Star Games will be held on August 5, 2017.  If your city/town is interesting in hosting, please send an email to
