Message: The Senior Division Tournament of Champions begins next week and the final week of the A, B and C divisions are next week. The races are tight and to avoid tie-breakers, every win counts. Remember also that games begin next week at 5:30 and NOT 5:45 so get them started on time to beat the darkness. Best of luck to all!

Message: Well, here we are. At or near the halfway point in our summer season. Have you looked at the standings lately? Can't really say that there are any teams that are truly out of a spot in the playoffs. So let's recap,as of Sunday morning, July 10th.
In the A Division, Brookline Blue and Wakefield lead the East but just by one game over Brookline Red, Cambridge and Medford. Lynnfield at 1-5 isn't out of it either. Why? Look at the games they've played. One run losses in some close games that can turn into wins in the 2nd half.
Out West in the A Division, the story is much the same as Groton and Northborough lead by the slimiest of margins. Marlborough, Natick, Needham and Parkway are right on their heels with Sudbury and Belmont right after them.
In the B Division, Medford and Reading lead the East with Cambridge and Belmont right behind them. If the Astros, Stoneham, Wakefield and Woburn get hot, it's anybody's race to the playoffs.
In the West of the B Division, Acton, Marlborough, Sudbury and Parkway stand atop for now but I think Dover-Sherborn and Concord-Carlisle might have something to say about this conference before it's all said and done.
The 13s in the C Division, both East and West have probably the tightest race going right now with 11 teams within 2 games of the lead in each conference. Now that's a good race to watch and I've noticed from the games I've seen in that Division that the players and teams are doing VERY well on the big diamond and with BBCORE bats.
So the entire board of directors, commissioners and myself are looking forward to this 2nd half of the season. Lots of good baseball to play and it looks like every game will be crucial as we head towards the Super 8 playoffs and then the Final Four.
If you have any problems or questions, just look at your rule book or email your commissioners.
