The North Shore Navigators of the New England Collegiate Baseball League (NECBL) have made a concerted effort to give back to surrounding communities since the team moved to Lynn three years ago.
This upcoming summer, the organization will continue its 50/50 Town Night program which benefits local organizations in surrounding North Shore area cities and towns. The program provides an organization the opportunity to sell tickets to a game and receive half the proceeds from its sales. The team’s goal is to help raise $100,000 for surrounding community organizations in 2011.
The team’s 6:15 p.m. contest on July 1 against the Sanford Mainers will serve as ‘Gloucester Night’, as the Gloucester Little League will serve as the program’s beneficiary. If you wish to sell or purchase tickets, please notify league contact Cindy Rich at (978) 546-3006 or cindyrich@verizon.net.
“The Navigators as an organization are excited and proud to have the opportunity to give back to the immediate area,” said team owner Tim Haley. “It is an extension of our goal to become part of the fabric of the North Shore community.”
The organization is also currently seeking a sponsor to provide t-shirts for the 300 little league members in attendance at the game.
Each of the team’s home games this season will support at least one local organization in the nearby community. The partnership also calls for community representatives to throw out the first pitch, sing the national anthem, and perform other ceremonial ballpark tasks.
The Navigators, who won the NECBL championship last year, will play 21 games at Lynn’s Fraser Field this summer and will also host the 2011 NECBL All-Star Game on July 27.

Gloucester Little League News

Hey Joey – Happy New Year!!!  I wanted to ask if you could post some “Gloucester Little League News” to your blog.  It’s that time again, gearing up for the baseball season.

Thanks so Much!  Cindy Rich

RHS Baseball coach John Parisi is going to host a baseball coaches clinic on Sat Feb.13 in RHS gym.  The clinic will be organized by John but run for the most part by Jason Larocque. Recent clinics Jason ran over Christmas vacation have received very good reviews. The cost is $25 per participant. A notice about this clinic will be run on the Gloucester Times (a notice appeared in Jan. 21st GDT).  Please contact John Parisi if you have any questions.

Prior to the start of the season, every manager should attend at least one of these coaches clinics to get ready for the upcoming season.  From personal experience I can tell you the time spent is well worth it.  Great ideas on running a practice and teaching baseball fundamentals.  – Dean
