Why We Play ...

CELEBRATING 40 YEARS OF COMPETITION, MEMORIES AND LAUGHS!

The BAA Men’s Softball league (the "League") has been enjoyed by Boxford residents since 1981. More than 200 players gather each summer to relive the glory days of their youth - some successful....most not so successful!

The League consists of Boxford residents and town employees only. It  provides  an amazing opportunity for families new to town to meet other residents in a fun and social atmosphere. The strength and longevity of this League is built on community and purpose both on and off the field. This is a league where life-long friends not only can, but will, be formed. A league where fathers and sons have the chance to play competitive sport on the same team.

The League is comprised of twelve (12) teams split into two divisions (North and South). Teams typically play two (2) (but occasionally 3) games per week starting a 6:30 P.M. The season starts in mid-June and continues through late August including playoffs.

Players MUST meet the following criteria:

  1. MUST be a Boxford resident or town employee.
  2. MUST be at least 30 years old.
  3. MUST not take yourself seriously.
  4. MUST enjoy post-game socializing as much as the game itself.

The season winds down with a great charity golf tournament held at Far Corners Golf Course followed immediately by an end of season banquet.

Looking forward to seeing you on the softball field!

IN MEMORIAM ...

The BAA Men's Softball league (the "League") has been blessed with an endless list of quality individuals over the past four decades. Starting in 2020 the League would like to acknowledge those players who have recently passed.

Although no longer in the line-up their spirit remains each season, game and at bat.
