BAA Men’s Softball has been enjoyed by Boxford residents since 1981.
With registration in full swing, we hope to see everyone out on the field again this season. Some of the new and exciting things for the year are:
1) a new fence at Boyscout is in the works.
2) hoping to have mounds and home plates reset and bricked for better safety, and we are trying to find base markers that are acceptable so we will always have them in the right place.
3) If you have not been to Johnson, we are putting storage boxes at each field. This will allow the bases, extra game balls and any equipment needed to be stored at the field!
LATE FEE BEGINS JUNE 1, 2017 - If you are planning to play this season, please get signed up now. I appreciate the additional $35 donation to the program for those that procrastinate, but would prefer we just get everyone signed up on time. PLEASE NOTE THAT NO UNREGISTERED PLAYERS ARE ELIGIBLE TO PLAY, EVEN PRIOR TO JULY 1ST. IF A TEAM USES AN UNREGISTERED PLAYER, THE GAME WILL BE MARKED A FORFEIT, NO EXCEPTIONS. PLAYERS HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO REGISTER UP UNTIL JULY 1, BUT CAN ONLY PLAY AFTER COMPLETING REGISTRATION AND ACKNOWLEDGING THE LIABILITY WAIVER DURING THE PROCESS.
JULY 1, 2017 will be the last day a RETURNING player can register and be eligible to play for the 2017 season. After July 1, no registrations will be accepted and you will not be eligible to play at any time during the 2017 season. If not registered, you cannot play in any games or league sponsored activities even prior to the July 1 deadline.
FOR NEW PLAYERS - No new players will be accepted after draft day. All registrations must be complete by June 3, 2017 if doing it online. You may register at the draft on June 4 at 4PM in person and would be required to sign a waiver and have a check to pay registration fees. Please let me know if you have any questions.
JUNE 4, 2017 4:00PM
2017 New Player Draft - All new players should report to Johnson Field (7A Spofford Road) for a quick preseason workout, player draft and find out what team you will be on for the coming season.
It's a great time to meet the team managers, some future teammates and see some of the other new guys entering as the class on 2017!
You will need cleats/sneakers, glove and water. We will have bats (or bring your own), pitchers and others there to help out and make sure everyone has some fun.
If you would like a little warm up before the draft, we are at Johnson Field on Saturday mornings as a group getting in some action. All are welcome to come down and participate. We begin at 9, but us old guys are there really early to stretch and get ready.
JUNE 17, 2017 - Annual One Pitch
We will hold our annual One Pitch Tourney and cook out on the 17th. Games begin at 9 and are usually done by 1:00PM. It's a great day to come down, have some fun and bring the family. We will play a round robin style to get to a final 4 (how many games depends on total teams) and then a semi final and final game. Lunch will be served around noon time for all players and families (don't tell the kids, but there may even be ice cream). Please let your manager know if you will be participating.
JUNE 19, 2017 - OPENING DAY OF THE 2017 SEASON
Check the schedule at the bottom of the site to see the full schedule. Some teams will play on the first day and others will begin on Tuesday. We are looking forward to a fun, healthy season for all!
SEPTEMBER 17, 2017 - ANNUAL ALL STAR GAME
Each team will have the opportunity to reward it's top 2 players by selecting them to play in our all star game. It's a fun day for all and all players and families are welcome to come down and support your teammates as we see who the best division is, NORTH vs. SOUTH. We typically start early afternoon and have a catered BBQ for everyone when the game is over. Mark it in the calendar!
SEPTEMBER 29, 2017 - BANQUET & GOLF

Save the date! We will have our year end banquet and charity golf tournament.

The food is awesome, we have awards for the winning team, all stars and top players from the season.
