The 2016 season is generating a level of excitement about the Yawkey Baseball League that will be felt across the entire Boston area. With 13 franchises, including a new expansion team in Charlestown, the YBL, named after former Red Sox owner and National Baseball Hall of Fame inductee, Thomas A. Yawkey, maintains its status as the largest amateur baseball organization in Boston.
More impressively, 2013 saw the YBL take home the championship trophy at the second annual Eastern Massachusetts Baseball Classic, pitting All-Stars from the top four amateur baseball leagues in the Boston area against each other.
Our league has its roots in Boston back to the 1950’s. In various incarnations, we have been known as the City League, the Twilight League, and until 1990, the Boston Junior Park League. 1990 was a coming of age for our league, when we were renamed in honor of Mr. Yawkey. Our affiliation with the Yawkey Family has brought us many benefits over the years. The Yawkey Foundation is a major financial contributor. We are very proud to continue the baseball tradition established by Tom and Jean Yawkey in Boston.
