East Boston returns to the Yawkey League for 2020

The plans for the shortened 2020 Yawkey League season did not originally include an East Boston franchise. That changed this week when Branden Anderson submitted a last minute proposal to the board looking to bring a franchise back to the Yakwey League.

After some deliberation, the board and its membership voted to accept the proposal. The East Boston Expos franchise will begin play starting this season.

The 2020 Yawkey League season is set to begin next Monday July 6.
