Boston Park League
Founded 1929
Affiliation: none
Games in regular season: 32
Teams: 9
President: Walt Bentson

Season begins mid-May and the playoffs end the beginning of August.

America's oldest amateur baseball league, the Boston Park League was founded in 1929 by Bob Cusick, program director for the Boston Parks and Recreation Department. Teams were sponsored by many different individuals, businesses, and churches. In the 1930's and 40's, it was not unusual to see 3,000 -- 5,000 fans show up for a regular season game. Come play-off time, the attendance would increase from 8,000 -- 12,000 a game. In the 50's and 60's, the league continued to draw 6,000 or more to post season playoff games. As attendance began to level off, the league continued to prosper, as a steady stream of skilled players were coming and going. The players came from High Schools, Colleges, and many were ex pro's.

In 1982, the City of Boston decided to pass on the administrative duties to a small group of former players and coaches. The league named Bill Mahoney it's first President, Harvey Soolman Secretary Treasurer, and Walt Mortimer Umpire in Chief. With the need for more funding, the Budweiser Brewing Co. of Medford, Ma., distributors of Bud Light, sponsored the league for 4 years. The Yawkey Foundation came on board in 1986, and has continuously sponsored the Boston Park League for the last 20 years.
