Middle Essex Softball League 2014

This page was last updated on Wednesday at 7:45 PM

Information for the All Star Games is now posted in the My Site News section of the website.  The number next to your team represents the number of players your team should send.   If it says (Coach ???) next to your team, that means it's your option to coach the All Star team.   Please email to accept or decline the assignment.  Be sure to include which Division/Game you're writing about and the best way to reach you.  It would be great to have all the teams claimed today...keep checking for updates... COUNTDOWN:  29 unclaimed teams.

As discussed at the annual meeting and in keeping with the rules of the ASA, CHIN STRAPS are required equipment.  Be sure your player's helmets are legal.

Regarding the 10's:  Let's see if this helps.  First of all the league changed the runs allowed per inning from six to five.  The rule works the same as before, just that you switch out after five instead of six.  If more runs score on the last play, they all count.  In the B Division, lets say you have runners on first and second.  The girl on second steals third and the throw down goes into the outfield.  That runner scores.  This run counts as one of the two runs allowed by this method.  The runner on first MUST stay there.  She only moves on action created by an at bat (hit or walk).

CHAMPIONSHIPS:  Each team has a unique schedule.  Your mission is to have the best winning percentage within your Division.  Actually, Here's the breakdown of Championships that will be awarded:  18A=1, 18B=2, 14A=2, 14B=4, 12A=2, 12B=5, 10A=1, 10B=3 

By now all teams should have purchased insurance for players and one coach per team. 

The schedule is officially official {As of 8:00 PM Saturday 6/14}.  Any changes from this point on will be posted here.  Be sure to check the site often.  The list below has several new changes today.

The list of umpire assigners is posted in the HANDOUTS section.  There are changes from previous years. UPDATED 6/22 for Newton and Wellesley and adding in Bishop Fenwick

Anticipate a rule change next year that all registration fees must be paid by June 1st.  Maybe that will prevent late drop outs. 

CHANGES:  Cape Ann (Gloucester) teams have lost Burnham Fields to a construction project.  Keep an eye out for updated locations.  


COACHES-- When adding players to your roster on the website, you must use full names.  There are hundreds of "Nicole B's" in the world and that causes much confusion.  Anyone entered incorrectly will be deleted...

The Chelmsford Blue Crush Organization will be hosting their 10th annual Girls of Summer Tournament July 25-27 at the Southwell Field Complex.  This tournament is for MiddleEssex teams only, no tournament teams please.  Registration forms can be found at  and they must be received along with the $395 entry fee by July 11 at the latest.  If anybody has any questions, they can email Steve Garrity at or Alan Hamer at   The tournament regularly sells out, so act fast so you don’t miss out.  Trophies will be awarded for the top two teams in each division.

Our season will begin the week of June 23rd and end on August 7.  The All Star games will be on August 2nd.  This schedule is the same each year.... Please plan locally so you'll be ready to go on time!!
