Holyoke Youth Baseball League: News

Opening Day Jamboree

This year's Jamboree is on Saturday May 3. This year's honoree is the Holyoke Fire Department. They have supported our Jamboree every year for a very long time. Holyoke firefighters are also always among the first to step forward to coach a team. We owe them our thanks.

We start with the Parade of Players on Main Street at 10:00 AM. The parade will be led by the Holyoke Fire Department and security will be provided by the Holyoke Police Department. The Holyoke High School Marching Band will also participate.

Players should assemble on the grassy field north of Springdale near the corner of Main Street and Berkshire Street no later than 9:30 A.M. Please use nearby side streets to drop players off safely. Parents are invited to march with their team.

After some short opening day ceremonies exhibition games will be played by the Mighty Mite, Midget and Koufax divisions. The Pee Wee Division will play a full game. Scheduling details will be provided later.

Players will be fed a light lunch. Parents and friends can buy lunch for a small fee.

In the unlikely event of rain we will have the Jamboree on Sunday May 4.

Holyoke Wins Chicopee Parks League


The HYBL entered three teams into the Chicopee Parks league. Many games were played in Holyoke and Chicopee and the guys from Holyoke led the way.

American Legion Post 325 came in first place. Ruckis Tires came in second and Hatch Mott MacDonald came in third. We ran a post-season playoff for the Holyoke teams in which Ruckis beat Post 11-9 on July 3 at Crosier field.

Congratulations to all three teams.

Holyoke Medical Center Wins Pee Wee Championship


Holyoke Medical Center defeated Ross Insurance by the score of 9-0 to sweep the Pee Wee Championship Series. Congratulations to HMC and our highest regards to all teams on a well-played season.

The Pee Wee regular season is now over. It seems like only yesterday that winter forced the Pee Wee evaluation clinic indoors at Lynch but that was three months ago. We have a Pee Wee travel team that will participate in a handful of regional tournaments. We'll try to post results.

Keep your eyes peeled to this sight for 2014 registration information. The Jamboree is May 3, 2014. See you there.
