The amateur baseball world in New England will take notice on Sunday, June 29. The All-Stars of the George Donnelly Sunset League of Newport, RI, will trek to our beloved Boston to face our Thomas A. Yawkey Baseball League All-Stars at Jim Rice Field. Gametime is set for 3:00.
We are very proud to host this event at Jim Rice Field in the South End of Boston. The City of Boston in cooperation with the Yawkey Trust and the Red Sox Foundation put many dollars into a rehab of this inner-city baseball facility this past off-season.
We want to thank Mayor Marty Walsh and his administration for making our league welcome!
Admission will be free for this nine-inning contest. This is the first-ever encounter between these historic amateur baseball programs. A concession stand and rest facilities are available at the complex. Some fans may wish to bring lounge chairs to sit along the sidelines.
Rosters for both squads are being assembled. This promises to be an exciting afternoon showcasing some of the best amateur baseball talent in New England. We urge local youth leagues to come by and be a part of local baseball history.
