Getting Ready For 2019

As the calendar turns from March to April, the Yawkey League is looking forward to the 2019 season. The league is looking to build on a 2018 seasons which was one of the most competitive in recent memory. Three teams finished within a point of first place, while three teams went down to the wire for the final playoff spot. A new playoff format saw competitive series, that culminated in a game 7 that took extra innings to decide.

All ten teams from last season will be returning for 2019. As the teams begin to prepare for the start of the regular season, most are still looking for players to fill out their rosters. Anyone interested in joining the league, should fill out a player registration form that will be sent to all the teams.
