The venue for the Men’s State Championship on August 20th has been changed. The venue has been moved from Swansea, Mass to Szot Park in Chicopee. All three divisions will began play at 11 AM on fields 1, 2, and 3 on Saturday August 20th. Please let your respective teams know of the change.

One of Church of Christ’s players Jeremy McCormick’s son Conor is the 16 year old that you might have heard or read on the news that had a pool accident. Their entire Church is hurting. The league’s prayers for his healing and for the family would be appreciated.
The news has not been positive for this young man. He is currently paralyzed. His story has been featured on several media outlets the past few days, including from the Mayor of West Springfield. Church of Christ held a prayer vigil at the Church on Wednesday evening which drew about 350 people from the community. A “Go Fund Me” page has been established to assist the family with what will become exorbitantly high medical costs. Below are links with info. It includes the donation page. His father, Jeremy, has been a big part of our softball team all season. Thanks.
