Lynnfield Girls Softball, Founded in 1980

The Lynnfield Girls Softball League's dual mission is to provide a fun, instructional and safe outlet for girls to learn and enjoy the awesome sport of softball, and to provide a healthy feeder program that will help create and maintain a consistently strong high school softball program.

Great Turnout for Winter Clinic

Nearly 30 girls in grades 2-8 turned out for the first Lynnfield Winter Clinic at Route One Sportsplex. The seven-week program is designed to help the girls learn and sharpen their softball skills in advance of the coming spring and summer seasons. Thanks to all the volunteer coaches and especially high school players Kelly, Allie and Kandra, who pitched in their time to work with the younger girls.

The league is still accepting registration for the clinics and the coming spring season.

Spring Season, Winter Clinics Registration is Open

Registration Open for Clinics, Spring Season

The following message was sent to all contacts for players in grades 3 through 8 who played in the Lynnfield Girls Softball League last year. Unfortunately, we had some glitches in the registration system, but we believe they are ironed out.

Spring is right around the corner and we're looking forward to our 38th season of Lynnfield Girls Softball. We also want to make sure we're as ready as we can be, so we are offering a series of skills clinics on Wednesdays from 4-5 pm at the Route One Sportsplex. Details below.

---

Today, January 23, 2017, we opened registration for spring softball and winter clinics. This is for girls in grades 2 through 8, with the following three options to consider (please select only one).

Option 1: Spring Season with Winter Clinics ($175).

This season we are conducting a seven-week series of clinics on Wednesdays from 4pm-5pm at the Route One Sportsplex Indoor Facility in Danvers. The clinics begin on February 1 and run through March 15. The cost is $50 per player, but is reduced to $25 for those who sign up for the spring season at the same time. These clinics will be instructed by a combination of volunteer coaches, Sportsplex staff and current and former high school players. Participating girls (Grades 2-8) need only bring a glove and wear sneakers or rubber cleats. In addition to the clinics, the spring fee includes uniforms (jerseys, pants, socks), umpires, equipment (bats, balls, helmets) insurance, league fees, approximately 14 games (plus potential playoffs), practices, season-ending banquet, winner's trophies and the town-required $30 per-player fields maintenance fee. (More on the spring season below.)

NOTE 1: All players on Mr. Travers' current Middle School Indoor Team are automatically registered for the winter clinics. To register these players for the spring season, please use Option 2.

Option 2: Spring Season without Winter Clinics ($150).

For those not participating in the clinics, the annual league fee is $150. As usual, it includes uniforms (jersey, pants, socks), umpires, insurance, equipment, league fees, approximately 14 games (plus potential playoffs), practices, season-ending banquet, winner's trophies and the town-required $30 per-player fields maintenance fee.

Option 3: Clinics Only ($50)

If you are unsure about playing in the spring season, but are still interested in the winter indoor clinics, there is also a "clinics-only" option. Cost is $50 and you can register on this site or pay by check in person.

This is the third year that the LGS is participating in the Essex County Women's Softball League, which has been a success so far. The girls are divided into the Farm League (grades 2-3, optional for novice 4th graders), Junior Division (grades 4-6) and Senior Division (Grades 7-8). Our Lynnfield teams typically play between half and three-quarters of their games in town (Middle School or High School field), with the remainder in surrounding towns within a 15- to 20-minute drive. Games are usually twice a week on weeknights beginning at 6 pm. Most teams hold one optional weekend practice during the season, with more frequent practices prior to the first week of games.

Please go to www.lynnfieldgirlssoftball.com for more information and to register. When you register, we will ask for your address, your daughter's birth date and uniform size, as well as your contact information. We also ask if you'd be interested in helping to coach and whether your daughter may want to play summer softball.

Note 2: Since we're not sure we're contacting everyone who might be interested -- especially parents of 2nd graders -- please spread the word about LGS and our upcoming clinics. Thank you!

Note 3: The clinics are contingent on having a sufficient number of eligible players registered.

Winter Schedules Released

The Route One Sportsplex Winter Indoor Softball Schedule is out for the Middle School (U12/U14) Division and U18 Division.

You can find Lynnfield's U12/U14 schedule here.

And the U18 schedule here.

Both teams still have a few openings left. The Middle School team is geared for players in grade 5-8, though the initial emphasis was on U12. We've since discovered that the program has a mixture of ages in the Middle School group.

The U18 team is a high-school level team, playing against both club and other high school teams. Please contact Jerry Guerra at jguerra@jagg-group.com or Kevin Wing (lynnfieldgirlssoftball@gmail.com) for the U18 team and Kevin Travers (KCTravers1@gmail.com) for the Middle School team.

Upset Victory for 18A

Lynnfield Blue 18A

Lynnfield Blue 18A Squad Downs First-Place Marblehead

Tianna Dawe struck out 11 batters and allowed only two earned runs, while the Lynnfield Blue 18A bats came alive in a 9-6 victory over the first-place Marblehead Magicians Red on Wednesday, August 3.

The defense was solid overall as catcher Allie Wing threw out two runners attempting to steal second, and shortstop Rachel Badger and first baseman Hayley O'Brien manned their posts flawlessly.

At the plate, everyone who started the game had at least one hit. Alex Ross hit a booming two-run triple to right field in the four-run fifth, while Badger, O'Brien and Kelly Dillon each reached base three times. Leigh Guerra and Kendyl LaConte also had run-scoring hits in the game. Visiting Lynnfield was aggressive and smart on the bases all game, racking up a number of steals and constantly taking the extra base when they could.

Lynnfield jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the top of the first on singles by Wing and O'Brien and a two-out double by Dillon. In the second, LaConte drove in Badger with a hard line-drive single against Marblehead's pitcher, one of the state's best last year and a scholarship player heading into her freshman year of college. 

The Blue added two in the third when O'Brien singled and Dillon walked. Guerra knocked in O'Brien, and Dillon scored when on an errant throw to make it 5-0. 

Lynnfield had a few defensive lapses in the fourth, allowing Marblehead to pull within two, 5-3. But the visitors rallied in their next at-bat, scoring five and putting the game away. O'Brien once again started the fun, legging out an infield hit. Dillon, Guerra and Badger followed with singles, leading up to Ross's bases-clearing three-bagger.

Marblehead threatened in the seventh, scoring three unearned runs, but Dawe struck out the side to end the threat.

Sarah Tobin and Abby Berry also contributed to the victory. Absent for this game, but rounding out the roster, are Lucy Madden, Ashley Schumacher, Anissa Petrone, Emma Kelly, Kathleen Hamm and Taylor Tringali.

Lynnfield is 3-9 on the season, losing several close games along the way. The team caps its summer season with games Monday (8/8) at home and Wednesday at Marblehead against its other 18A team. Wing and O'Brien will represent the squad in the annual MiddleEssex all-star game Saturday, August 6.

Instant Classic for 18A

Newton Holds Off Lynnfield in Extras

The Lynnfield Blue 18A MiddleEssex team fell to 0-4 with a 6-5 loss to perennial powerhouse Newton Thursday night in one of the most entertaining, exciting summer softball games you'll see. Newton scored five runs in the top of the 8th inning, seemingly putting an end to a tense affair. But the Lynnfield girls rallied to score four runs in the bottom half and had the tying run on base when the visiting Lions got the final out.

Tianna Dawe hurled seven strong innings for Lynnfield, yielding only an unearned run in the first. Lynnfield tied it in the third when Leigh Guerra singled leading off and Rachel Badger followed with a perfect bunt to put runners on first and second. Lucy Madden's sacrifice moved the runners up and Guerra scored on a wild pitch.

In the fifth, Sarah Tobin tripled with one out, but was stranded at third.

Hayley O'Brien, who pitched six solid innings in a 4-2 loss to Gloucester the previous night, entered for Lynnfield in the eighth and was victimized by a combination of errors, bleeders and a couple of solid hits as Newton roared to a 6-1 lead in the extra frame.

The hosts didn't roll over, however. With Tobin on second per the international tiebreaker rule, Taylor Tringali laced a line drive that the third baseman snagged for the first out. Dawe and O'Brien walked to load the bases and Kelly Dillon ripped a two-strike pitch past the first baseman to plate two. O'Brien scored when a pickoff attempt sailed into left field, tightening the score to 6-4. Kathleen Hamm's sacrifice fly to right drove home Dillon with the fifth Lynnfield run. Guerra reached on a dropped third, but the game ended when the Newton second baseman snared Badger's hard grounder and flipped to the shortstop for the third out.

The teams get back together in Newton for a game under the lights (7:15 start) Monday night at Abermarle Field in Newton. The Blue's other game this week is Thursday at home vs. Revere.
