Lynnfield Bears Bear Watching

Lynnfield Bears 2019 Fall Squad

Bears Impress in Three Seasons

Even as the weather turns colder, there was no hibernating for Lynnfield Youth Softball Association coach and board member John Dias and his Lynnfield Bears. After a stellar run in the Essex County Women's Softball League (ECWSL) Junior South Division last spring -- culminating in a second-place finish and heartbreaking semifinal playoff loss -- Dias and the Bears kept coming back to the field. The coach and many of the players from the spring team participated on Lynnfield's summer U12 team, the Lynnfield Lightning, which finished with an impressive 8-2-2 record in the very competitive Middle Essex League.

Dias and his core group then moved on to the Billerica Fall League, where they were initially placed in the U14 division despite being a U12 team. The team held its own in the upper age group, and when they were relocated to the correct division, enjoyed tremendous success. The Bears finished fifth in a 15-team division and improved with every game. This is believed to be Lynnfield's first foray into the fall league in Billerica.

Finally, Dias and an expanded group of Middle Schoolers wrapped up the year with Saturday afternoon sessions at the New England Premier Sportsplex, working on drills for part of the time and playing a game for the rest. Coach Dias and his players will be back in the coming spring season as well as for the winter clinics that begin at the end of January. And though not all of the Bears will be Bears this coming season -- teams are reset every year and some will be playing in a different age group -- it was a great 2019 for the players, the coach and the program as a whole.

Registration Open, Clinics Scheduled

ECWSL Senior Division South Champion Lynnfield Lightning

Lynnfield Youth Softball Opens Registration for 2020 Spring Season, Winter Clinics

Coming off its most successful season since joining the Essex County Women’s Softball League (ECWSL) in 2015, the Lynnfield Youth Softball Association (LYSBA) is kicking off its 2020 season with winter clinics on Tuesdays and Wednesdays beginning at the end of January. Registration for the spring program – including seven sessions of complimentary clinics – is open at lynnfieldgirlssoftball.com.

The LYSBA program, which includes girls in grades K-8 that live or attend school in Lynnfield, claimed championships in both the Junior (5th-6th) and Senior (7th-8th) South A Divisions last spring. The program also continued to boast the highest number of teams among the 15 programs participating in the ECWSL, despite losing several 8th graders to the high school JV program.  Lynnfield and the City of Amesbury had 10 teams each across the three divisions, at least three more than any other program.

At the Junior (5th-6th) and Senior (7th-8th) levels, the LYSBA experienced unprecedented success on the diamond. The Lynnfield Thunder went 10-1 in the regular season, edging out the second-place Lynnfield Bears (9-2) on their way to Lynnfield’s first Junior South Division A championship. The Bears were knocked out in a close semifinal game, but the Thunder won their semi and then rallied from a huge early deficit in the Division final to capture the crown. The Thunder, coached by Katy Williams, dropped the Junior A League final to North Division champ Rowley. The third LYSBA Junior team, the Legends, won their playoff opener before falling to eventual B Division League Champ Middleton. 

In the Senior Division, Lynnfield again boasted a Division champion, as the second-seeded Lightning won a thriller over top-seeded Ipswich to claim the South Division A crown. Rick Kampersal’s Lightning dropped the league final to a stacked Newburyport squad. Ralph Visconti’s Lions (5-7) grabbed the final spot in the A Division, but dropped their playoff opener. The third senior team, Kevin Travers’ Lugnuts, had a memorable finish, rallying for an incredible 16 runs in their final at-bat after spotting the visiting Ipswich Jaguars a 25-run lead.

In 2019, Lynnfield doubled the previous high for teams in the Farm Division (2nd through 4th grades) with four teams. For the first time, the Lynnfield program also began a “Skills, Drills & Games” program for K-1 players that was initiated and overseen by Chris Caprio.

In another first, Bears coach John Dias entered a U-12 team into the fall league in Billerica, which finished 5th in a 15-team league, and also conducted a late fall clinic at the New England Premier Sportsplex for Middle School girls.

The seven-week winter clinics will be held at the New England Premier Sportsplex in Danvers on Tuesdays from 4-5 pm (for K-4 players) and Wednesday from 3-4 pm (5-8 players). More details are available on the league website, http://www.lynnfieldgirlssoftball.com.
