The New England Elite Baseball Leagues 2014 season kicked off this past weekend despite the terrible weather that took place across the North East. Despite the bad weather some teams still found playable fields to actually get some games in but most teams were unsuccessful because of the heavy rain that took place on Friday night . The EBL really appreciates all of the coaches efforts trying to get fields playable and the communication that took place between all of the teams during the first weekend.
The EBL is excited to add some new programs to the league for the 2014 season. The list includes Vikings Baseball, Hit Doctor Diamonds, Antonelli Baseball, Southern Maine River Rats, Mass Hurricanes, Lions, NH Black Hawks, JR Ghosts, Clipper Pride, Sun Devils, Middlesex Titans, Southern Maine Wave, Rivals Baseball, Rampage Baseball, Western Mass Wave, NE Reds, Bulldogs, Razorbacks Baseball, Bay State Hooks and JR Knights. We expect big things from these new programs as we watch them grow over the next few years.
We are excited that the new season is now underway and before you know it the playoffs and all-star games will be here. Good luck to all of the EBL teams, play hard, have fun and represent the Elite Baseball League proudly in all of your outside tournament adventures.
The New England Elite Baseball League is now entering its 3rd season for ages 9U-18U. With the additions of some new programs along with the return of all the programs from the 2013 season, this year will be even more competitive and exciting than the first two years.
New this year in the EBL!!! We will be adding a new DIA division for ages 12U-14U to make all games more competitive. The EBL's goal is to continue to strengthen all three divisions year in and year out. This will be the 2nd division in those age levels along with division DI and DII. The EBL Board of Directors took time out to place all teams in the correct divisions and each team request was taking very serious.
The EBL Playoffs and All Star Games will take place at some of the best fields in New England. In the past we have used mostly college fields along with some of the top notch high school fields. Last year, our 13U & 14U DI playoffs and All-Star Games were held at Lelacheur Park (home of the Lowell Spinners). We feel like we have the elite players in New England and that they should be playing at the best fields possible.

The Mizuno 14U Cardinal Team had a strong regular season finishing 30-5 overall and ending the season on a 13 game win streak. Their playoff run however did not get off to a strong start. In the first game they were stunned by the potent offense of Ortiz Sports, losing 9-3 and on Sunday they trailed the Hurricanes Red 2-0 until a late game rally produced 2 runs in the 5th and 6th and the Mizuno defense held for a 4-2 win. On the second weekend of the playoffs Mizuno Cardinal never trailed in the final three games on their way to the Championship. They rode strong starting pitching performances from Xander Schubert, Jared Pellegrino, and Brett Sullivan. The offense was powered by the entire lineup, scoring 26 runs in the final 3 games. Zach Simpson's late season fireworks at the plate led the offense and the defense was anchored by Danny Smith, who caught every inning during the playoffs. But it was the overall team defense that carried Mizuno through the regular season and playoffs. In the Championship game Mizuno Cardinal jumped out to an early 5-0 lead against a tough Hurricanes Blue team. But the Hurricanes were not going to go quietly and surged back in the 4th and 5th innings with 4 and 3 runs respectively to cut the lead to 8-7. After weathering the Hurricane surge Mizuno was able to add an insurance run in the bottom of the 5th and close out the game to take home the Championship.

The Plympton Crush is the 2013 18U Division II EBL League Champions. After a complete game thrown by Ben Lodge in the semi-finals versus Legends, Christian Flaherty and Owen Galvin split the pitching load in the Championship game against a strong RBI opponent. With a 5-2 score heading into the 7th inning, the RBI Hawks manufactured some late offense, scoring a run and putting the tying run on second with two outs. But Galvin was able to force a pop up to the catcher (Dave Romero) for the final out of the game. Offensively, the Crush had 8 hits including a two RBI double from Flaherty and gave up just one defensive error.

Team Nokona rolled in the first weekend and battled from behind against the Noreasters to make the finals on championship day.
