Stoughton 1 Sweeps Double-Header to Claim Third Place

Bam!  Pow!  Kablooey!

Stoughon 1 beat up Stoughton 2 like Batman and Robin taking care of Catwoman's minions.  Stoughton 2 never led in either game, though they did mount a 5-run comeback in the bottom of the bottom of the 7th in the opener to at least make it a respectable 12-10 at the finish.

The nightcap, on the other hand, was a laugher (or a crier, depending on your perspective).  With balls sailing out of the park in all directions whenever the home team was at bat, the ST1 juggernaut claimed an easy 24-4, slaughter rule victory over Stoughton 2.

The heroes of the night for Stoughon 1 were... everybody.  It takes everybody to score 36 runs.

Stoughton 1's reward is a first round bye.  They play again in the semifinals on Wednesday, facing 2nd place Sharon 1.

Stoughton 2 drops to last place, and must now play Sharon 2 in the play-in game Monday night.  The winner of that game earns the right to play in the other semifinal against Easton on Wednesday.


Last Place Stoughton 2 Pins First Loss on First Place Easton

The first time they played, they didn't even finish.  The game was stopped via the mercy rule when Easton stretched their lead to 15-0 in the top of the 6th innning.

What a difference a couple of weeks make.  In a shocking upset, the last place Stoughton 2 squad, playing a man short in the outfield, shocked the #1 and previously-undefeated Easton team tonight, downing the defending league champs by a score of 14-8.

For this one night, anyway, Stoughton 2 was able to resurrect the solid fielding and timely hitting that saw them win the JSL championship three years ago.  They were also fortunate to catch the champs on a night when they were without Kenny, their longtime ace.  Two substitute hurlers were game enough, but some early wildness definitely contributed to Stoughton 2 putting up some nice crooked numbers in the early innings, building an 11-0 lead.  Easton fought back, of course, but Stoughton 2 were able to execute just enough bend-but-don't-break defense -- and 3 insurance runs -- to hold on for their second win of the season.


Schedule Confusion Disrupts HR Derby and JSL Double-Header

Oops!  Looks like we forgot to read the fine print.

JBBBS and JSL supporters were surprised to arrive at the West School Complex last Sunday, the 14th, only to discover that the entire facility was in use by a girls' softball tournament. Turns out that 7/14 was specifically excluded from our field permit, but no one ever noticed the exception to our usual Sunday night reservation.

Well, let it not be said that we're not adaptable.

Sharon 1 and Sharon 2 relocated their game to Sharon, where Sharon 2 was able to pin a rare defeat, 11-7, on their home town rivals

Stoughton 1 and Stoughton 2 postponed their game.  Combine that with their game next Sunday that will need to moved due to a conflict with a big Temple event, and it's looking like they'll be playing a double-header on the last Sunday of the Season.

The HR Derby, meanwhile, has also been postponed.  The tentative reschedule date is looking like Sunday, August 18, before the first play-off game.  Watch this space for confirmation of that date.


JBBBS Home Run Derby & Cookout on July 14

The Temple Israel Brotherhood with the assistance of David S in acquiring the field (thanks David!) is once again sponsoring a Home Run Derby for Jewish Big Brother Big Sister.  This year the derby will be Sunday July 14, 2:00 - 4:00 pm, ending prior to the JSL games that night.
We are hoping for a larger contingent of JSL players to participate this year than in previous years.  Players can register at

You don't have to be a slugger to participate.  You can pitch, you can shag flies, or you can just come to cheer on your teammates who are hitting.

And there is food.  Good food!  Bring the family, for goodness sake.

All proceeds go to Jewish Big Brother Big Sister (JBBBS).

Your help is much appreciated!


Our Opening Day double-header featured two close games.

In the opener, Easton rallied from 7 runs down to score 8 in the last two innings and nip Sharon 1 by a score of 8-7.

In the nightcap, Stoughton 2 scored 2 in the top of the first and made them hold up in a tight defensive battle that ended with a score of 2-1.


2013 Regular Season Schedule is now available online. (Click on Schedules or Events, at left.)

Opening day is Sunday, June 16.  Happy Fathers Day!

Our schedule follows the same pattern as in recent years.  There are two games the first Sunday, and on July 14.  Otherwise, there is one regularly scheduled game on Sunday night at 7:00 pm.  The early 5:00 pm slot is also available for make-up games, if needed.  All Sunday games are on Field 1, closest to the West School, under the lights.

Monday and Wednesday games are on Fields 2 and 3, away from the West School.  All weekday games begin at 6:30 pm, except for the last week of the regular season (August 5 and 7) when games will start at 6:15.

Each team is scheduled to play 14 games in the regular season (barring rainouts).

The regular season ends on Wednesday, August 7.  Play-offs will begin on the Sunday or Monday following, depending on the need for any make-up games to determine seeding.

As always, team captains or their designated press secretaries will need to send me game scores by email after the games so that I can post the scores.  Please email me at

Finally, please note that teams now have assigned dugouts for every game. By decree, the home team will take the first-base dugout/bench for each game.
