Bears are Champs

Batbusters, Bears Advance; Last Two Remaining Lynnfield Teams

In a third close, well-played game between the two teams this season, the Lynnfield Batbusters eked out an 8-6 victory over the Lynnfield Bobcats to move on to the South B Division finals. The game was played at the Middle School, where Batbusters Coach Milne hopes to hold the finals on Friday. Stay tuned.

It was a disappointing end to the Junior B Division run of the top-seeded Lynnfield Legends as they were unable to field a team for the Junior South B Division semifinals. The visiting Lynnfield Bears move on with the forfeit and will play in the South finals on Saturday.

Bears and Bobcats Win, Season Ends for Bandits and Skyhawks

Five of Eight Lynnfield Teams Reach ECWSL Divisional Semis

The Lynnfield Bobcats Senior Division team cruised to victory over Georgetown, 21-8, in an Essex County Women's Softball League (ECWSL) playoff game at the Lynnfield High School field on Monday Night. With the win, the Bobcats will face their cross-town rivals, the Lynnfield Batbusters, who had a bye in the first round. The fourth-seeded Bobcats, coached by Kevin Travis, will play the B Division's top seeded Batbuster, guided by Jeff Milne, at LMS on Wednesday (6 pm). Travis and Milne grew up in Lynnfield and were childhood friends, but they'll put friendship aside as they battle to reach the division final and Junior League semifinal.

The Lynnfield Bears downed the Lynnfield Skyhawks in a Junior League B Division first-rounder at the Middle School. The Bears will play the top-seeded Lynnfield Legends in the second round Wednesday evening (6 pm) at the High School Field.

The season also ended for the Lynnfield Bandits, who fell in a first-round game at Topsfield. 

The Lynnfield Lightning, winners of a first-round contest over the Lynnfield Lions Sunday, are scheduled to play Tuesday night at Georgetown in a Junior League A Division Second Round game.

Semifinal games feature the South Division finalists; they will be played on Friday or Saturday at the higher seed's home field. Finals pitting the North and South winners against each other in all four divisions will occur on Sunday at a neutral site.

Playoff Schedule Set for This Week

ECWSL Playoffs Are This Week

Lynnfield's five Junior League teams and three Senior League teams begin their playoff run in the Essex County Women's Softball League (ECWSL) this week. In a strange coincidence, almost every playoff game involving one Lynnfield team will also involve another Lynnfield team. This, despite the fact that there are 27 total teams from the Essex County region in the Southern Divisions in which our teams play.

Playoffs begin on Sunday, June 10, when the Lynnfield Lions, seeded fourth in the A Division of the Junior South playoffs, host the fifth-seeded Lynnfield Lightning. The Junior Division is for players in fourth through sixth grades.

On Monday night, the Lynnfield Bobcats, the 4th seed in the Senior B Division host Georgetown at the High School field, while the Junior B Division's 4th-seeded Lynnfield Bears host the 5th-seeded Lynnfield Skyhawks. In Monday's other game involving a Lynnfield team, the Bandits -- seeded 6th in the Senior B Division -- travel to 3rd-seeded Topsfield.

On Wednesday, the top seeds in both B Divisions -- the Lynnfield Legends in the Juniors and the Lynnfield Batbusters in the Seniors, who received first-round byes -- will host second round games. At the high school, the winner of the Skyhawks-Bears game will play the Legends, while the winner of the Bobcats-Georgetown game will play the Batbusters at the Middle School.

The winner of the Lions-Lightning game will play the winner of top-seeded Georgetown and 8th-seeded Boxford.  If the Bandits win, they will play at Middleton.

The South Division finals will be played at the home field of the top seed, either Friday or Saturday, and the Junior and Senior Division A and B finals -- North vs. South -- are played on Sunday at a neutral site.

Middle School Field Looking Good

The LMS softball field improvements are shaping up nicely, as was visible during the recent warm stretch. The skin infield is impressive and the sodded outfield seems to be taking hold. It remains unclear when the field will be ready for play, but we're hoping that the relatively mild winter will accelerate the process.

Following is a November report from Arthur Bourque, who spearheaded the successful effort to upgrade the town's playing fields: "At the softball field, the new clay infield has been installed and it is looking great. We have re-graded and reinstalled the outfield, installed sprinklers and drainage and will be sodding that field on Wednesday. The concrete walk behind the backstop will be installed on Monday or Tuesday and the electrical installation will be happening next week. In the spring we hope to replace the storage trailer at that location and add a pad for a port-a-pottie. That will wrap up that field."

The sod was placed, as seen in the attached photo, and with the exceptional work of the DPW and contractor, the field is on track to join our high school field as among the best in the region. 

The photos featured include one from early October (showing construction vehicle and material on mound), one from late October (dirt spread on field) and four different views from February 20, 2018.
