A message from the league

The impact of COVID-19 has been felt in every walk of life including baseball in New England that has seen cancellations of college and high schools seasons. As we all look to abide by the stay at home orders and adhere to the social distancing guidelines, we ask that you please cooperate with the mandates of our public officials.

Currently all organized sport activity has been suspended in the Commonwealth. As a result it is requested that members of the Yawkey League should not gather at any field as individuals or as a group to practice or scrimmage.

The board continues to work on plans for a 2020 season. We are exploring all options for providing the most baseball it can when it becomes safe to do so.

In the meantime please be safe and healthy.

Revere Walks Off With 2019 Championship

With a 2 run homer in the bottom of the seventh by Alex Wong, Revere would take game six 5-4 to clinch the championship series 4-2.

Having trailed in the series 2-0 and 3-1, Charlestown looked poised to force game seven as they led by a score of 4-2 going into the bottom of the seventh. To that point Charlestown starter Billy Sullivan had only yielded two unearned runs to Revere.

Mike Lembo lead off the seventh with an infield single to the hole between third and short. A pinch runner would score on a double to left center by
Argeny Villa. Zach Aresty then moved Villa to third with a sac bunt, setting the stage for Alex Wong. Wong delivered with a home run to right center.

Congrats to Nate Laliberte and all of the Revere Rockies.
