At their meeting on June 23, the members of the Yawkey League voted to unanimously approve a franchise to Robert Lewis, Jr. and Stephen Lewis of The BASE. The newest franchise will be based out of Boston and begin play this season.
From President Dave McKay :
“Warm thanks to Robert and Stephan Lewis for accepting our invitation and forming a franchise. We also extend a note of thanks to the Yawkey Trust for helping lay the building blocks for this partnership. The BASE has a vast impact in our inner city neighborhoods. Their mission is to match sports and education. It is our hopes this will be the beginning of a long standing relationship.”
