Here is a WCVB News feature on YBL pitcher Jeff Allison, a former first round draft pick out of Peabody High School by the Florida Marlins. This is the latest installment in his incredible story of addiction and redemption, which has drawn widespread coverage over the past couple years from the likes of Peter Gammons and many others. For the past two seasons, Allison has been a member of the now-defunct Malden Bulldogs. The league looks forward to seeing him in a new YBL jersey for 2014 (though our hitters may find this a dubious hope).
