Bedford Babe Ruth Baseball and Softball Summer 2022
July 8, 2022
by Daniel Brosgol, Summer Leagues Commissioner
It’s been a wonderful start to the season for our summer teams, who are doing very well across all of their competitions and have had a lovely stretch of weather for baseball and softball. Here’s a quick snapshot of how they are doing to help you get excited for the next five weeks of the summer seasons.
Thank you to all of our volunteers, including our managers and coaches, the BBRBS board, Josh Sobol (field scheduler), and Steve Carluccio and Ryan Bouchard (umpire coordinators), for making sure the summer season has gone so smoothly.
It’s been a great summer so far, so as you stroll around town this month, I encourage you to swing by a field to catch some of our teams in action.
Baystate C Baseball
The July 4 holiday break halted games for a while but our 9- and 10-year olds are sitting at 1-1 and Will Houde’s team will be seeking a spot in the opening trophy weekend over their next four games. You can catch them in action at Page Field on Monday 7/11 at 5:45 against Lexington, or Tuesday 7/12 at 7:00 under the lights against Winchester, also at Page.
U10 Middle Essex Softball
Elizabeth Brosgol’s U10 team sits at 4-0 after wins in Billerica and at home against Acton-Boxboro this week. They visit Wilmington on July 12 and host Tewksbury on C Field on July 13 at 6:15.
Baystate A Baseball
John Correu’s Baystate A baseball team (ages 11-12) made an inspired run into the state tournament after qualifying out of the Cal Ripken District tournament. They beat Old Rochester on Saturday in their opener before dropping their next two games, and now turn their attention to Baystate play, where they currently have a 2-2 record. The A team will play Saturday and Sunday mornings at 10:00 at Upper Davis against Sudbury and Billerica.
U12 Middle Essex Softball
Ryan Bouchard’s team grabbed a 12-12 tie in Allston on Tuesday and beat Acton-Boxboro at E Field on Thursday to improve to 2-0-1 on the season. The girls will play at Tewksbury on July 11 and at host Maynard on July 12.
Middlesex U10 and U12 Baseball
We have four teams beginning Middlesex League play on July 11. Mike Tecci and Brendan Dowdall will be managing the U10s and Jeremy Tate and Kevin Finn will be managing the U12s. There will be home games most weeks Monday through Thursday at I Field for those teams.
Junior Babe Ruth Baseball
Scott Wright’s U16 squad began play this week and grabbed two road wins at Lexington and Charlestown, and a home win against Watertown on Thursday, to start the year at 3-0.
Lou Tompkins B Division Baseball
Tony Melfi’s team has jumped out to a 4-0 start after a road win Thursday night in Belmont. They will host Lincoln/Sudbury/Wayland on Monday night at BHS on A Field.
U18 Middle Essex Softball
Paul Schuman’s U18 team sits at 3-0 after a win at Everett this week. They travel to North Andover on July 11 and will host Woburn on July 12.
Senior Babe Ruth - U20 Baseball
My senior Babe Ruth team is off to a 7-0 start after wins over Lexington, Lynnfield, and Malden this week. The U20s are home again next Thursday at BHS against Lexington after visiting Lynnfield on Monday.
