This year will be the nineteenth season for World Series Park.
“Our first eighteen seasons were incredible, Park Superintendent Bob Davis said.
“The success of our endeavor can be measured in the amount of games (over 250 in 2022) played on our field and the opportunity World Series Park affords Saugus young people to play baseball on a first class field,” Davis said.
“We’ve come a long way since we built the field in 2004. We installed lights at the end of the 2021 season and hosted 52 night games last season,” he said. “Thanks very much to all of our sponsors and to those who made donations over the years. Without your support World Series Park wouldn’t have been possible.”
Highlights of the 2022 season included hosting the following: three AAU Baseball tournaments and the Commonwealth Amateur Baseball League playoffs and championship game. They also hosted all Saugus High varsity home games, a state high school tournament game, a large number of AAU Baseball games, a Saugus American Legion game, North Shore Baseball League games and Commonwealth Amateur Baseball League games.
In past seasons they’ve hosted state and district Babe Ruth tournaments, Special Olympics, TargetCancer fundraisers, a Multiple Sclerosis fundraiser, Commonwealth Amateur Baseball League tournaments, Coaches vs. Cancer tournaments and a Veterans/Military Appreciation Day.
A full schedule of games is planned for 2023, starting the last week in March and going through September. The first Saugus High home game is April 5 against Northeast Metro Tech. The public is welcome to attend all games. There is no charge and plenty of parking.
