2007 was a FANTASTIC year for Little League Jimmy Fund program...
We would like to thank all of you for your efforts this year in the Jimmy Fund Little League program. The goals of this program continue to be met, by giving Little Leaguers the opportunity to play more baseball/softball and at the same time, raise money for children with cancer. The program had an amazing year raising a record $370,000.

Massachusetts to host East Regional Senior Softball Tournament
For the first time since 1964, Massachusetts will host an East Regional Tournament. The 2007 Senior League Softball East Region Tournament has a new home - Worcester, Massachusetts. The Senior League Softball East Regional Tournament was previously played and hosted the past two years in Easton, Maryland. However, after long consideration, Maryland District said that they would no longer be willing or able to host such a high level and profile tournament. Multiple proposals were submitted by the states of Connecticut and Maryland along with proposals from New Jersey and Massachusetts. After long review and consideration, the tournament was awarded to Massachusetts District 4 and the Jesse Burkett Little League. All of the proposals were very detailed, excellently thought out and would have been very successful in any location. However, with the committment from the Massachusetts District 4 Administrator, District Staff, Jesse Burkett Little League, the City of Worcester, the Massachusetts State of District Administrator Association and the Massachusetts State Government, Worcester was the exceptional location for the 2007 East Region Senior League Softball Tournament.
Congratulations are extended to Doug Hannam, Mass District 4 Administrator and all of the individuals who have made this possible and Worcester the new home of the 2007 Senior League Softball East Region Tournament. Massachusetts and the East Region look ahead to a very bright future and many years for the progress, growth and development of this particular tournament within the City of Worcester along with an even stronger partnership with Little League Baseball and Softball.

Al & al Manger/Coach clinic is a big hit...
With an attendance of 400 managers and coaches, Al Price of Al and al Baseball delivered a terrific day of instruction.
There is no doubt you have all heard of the famous Little League clinic instruction team of Al and al. Once again, due to popular demand, the Al & al clinic has been scheduled to the Massachusetts area and will be hosted this year by the District 13. Clinic will be held on Sunday, March 4, 2007 at the Joyce Middle School Gym. The individual leagues that participate can send as many managers and coaches as want to come, for an all-inclusive fee. The secret to the success of the Al & al clinics has always been the hands on instruction from the experience of attending as well as learning from the training material they offer for the leagues. Please review the enclosed information and have the individual leagues send their orders directly to Al & al prior to the clinic so that the participants can use the booklets during the clinic for reference and taking notes.
