Welcome to New England Elite Baseball League, comprised of the most talented teams in New England. Our mission is to maintain a competitive league with a strong focus on structure and organization within the league. Programs that are part of the EBL will have a team page on our site to promote their program, post team rosters and update game scores and stats. By being part of the EBL League, you will better your program for your players, as it will eliminate constant changes, cancelations and the hassle of finding games last minute.
This past weekend, Seacoast United Pirates Baseball Club hosted their first tournament in Epping, NH. The tournament had representation from 3 Seacoast United Pirates 10u teams (North, South, West), NH Bobcats (Manchester, NH), Akadema Razorbacks (Holbrook, MA), Minutemen Baseball (Waltham, MA), East Cobb Expos (Beverly, MA) and the Jr. Spinners (Lowell, MA).
The SU Pirates South went 5-0 on the weekend to capture the championship with a 9-5 win over SU Pirates West in the first annual Seacoast United 10U Spring Swing. The Pirates collected wins against Minutemen Baseball, Akadema Razorbacks, NH Bobcats, SU Pirates North, and SU Pirates West with 54 runs scored and 15 runs allowed.
No. 2 seed SU Pirates South defeated the No. 3 seed NH Bobcats, 12-2 in 5 innings, to advance to the championship game, while No. 4 seed SU Pirates West easily beat the No. 1 seed East Cobb New England Expos in the other semifinal game by the score of 10-1.
In the championship game, SU Pirates South jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the 1st with runs by Jake Fredericks (2-2, 1B, 3-run HR) and Zach Brassill (2-2, 1B, 3B). A big offensive 3rd inning lead by Jason Pinsonnault (1-2), Steven Lawton (1-2), Owen Bateman (2-3, 12-16 in 5 games), and Owen Pallatroni (1-3) set up a Jake Fredericks 3-run HR to left-center, putting them up 7-1. Two more runs on an AJ Politano (1-2, 1B) single made it 9-1.
Fredericks, SU Pirates South starting pitcher, was very effective with first pitch strikes and kept SU Pirates West hitters off balance. His battery mate Kevin Tilley caught all five games in the tournament and was the team's defensive MVP.
A.J. Van Winkle was untouchable on Sunday, throwing a no-hitter for the Akadema Razorbacks 11U White Division 2 team.
A.J. threw a no-hitter, striking out 15 batters and walking none. He finished off his amazing performance by striking out the final batter of the game. A.J only threw 6 balls all game long and delivered one of the best pitching performances in EBL history.
In the first start at 60'6" in his life, New England Stampede's Declan Quinn throws a no hitter in a 7-0 victory. Quinn's success was in large part due to his aggressiveness in the strike zone, throwing only 17 pitches over the last 4 innings of the game. The left-handers final line was 7IP, 5K, 0R, 0BB, 0H.
The Nokona Baseball 11U squad took home the first annual New England Baseball April Classic title. The 4-0 weekend started with a win against a tough Braintree Bandits team. Nokona continued on to the championship after defeating the Ocean Waves (10-2) and NE Storm (2-1). In the championship versus Triple Crown Kings (7-2), Jake Burns scattered 5 hits over 6 innings, striking out 6 and walking none
The weekend was full of great defensive plays and clutch hitting. Brendan Weddleton continued to turns hits into outs in RF, while our infield play was near perfect (Foley, Goodman, Weihrauch, Clancy all made solid plays).
Ryan Seaver, Thomas Rogers, Robbie O’Connor, and Tyler Weihrauch all pitched well around Burns. They threw good strikes, changed speeds, and only allowed 6 walks all weekend, striking out 21, and keeping the team ERA at 2.28.
The offensive attack was led by Jake Burns (5 hits, 4 RBI), Thomas Rogers (2 hits, 6 RBI, HR), and Matt Brinker (4 hits, 3 2B, 5 RBI). Home runs by Kevin McCasland and Danny Clancy were big momentum changers for the Chiefs.
With the 2015 baseball season less than 100 days away the New England Elite Baseball League has posted all of the divisions live on the EBL website. Each team will receive their own team page on the website to add rosters, bios and head shots of each player. Team pictures, action shots and stats can be added throughout the season by each team. Having the ability to keep the stats throughout the year has always been a big hit with the families, players and coaches from across the league. These are the little things that set our league apart from all of the others.
The EBL is entering it's 4th season and the expectations are at an all time high as a league. These expectations include organization, communication, competitiveness, accountability and structure. Adding a few new programs along with the returning programs sets up a very competitive 2015 season in the EBL. Rivalries have been created over the past 4 years between certain programs and those rivalries will continue with the hopes of new ones forming.
Most of the EBL programs have been practicing hard since November trying to build chemistry along with working on the fundamentals of the game. A handful of EBL teams will be invited to some of the best tournaments in the country which is a huge accomplishment for our league. Travel baseball has become very popular over the past 10 years across the country and that's why each year the EBL attracts the serious baseball players and the best programs from across New England.
