Monday, July 20
It took a while, we had to navigate some highly challenging circumstances (understatement of the year), and also had to deal with a lot of moving parts, but we’re at the point where all systems are officially now a “go” and we will be playing a 4-team, 9-game schedule in 2020 — starting THIS week.
Red, Green, and Navy will be fielding their usual full squads, but due to either injuries or guys opting out of playing this year, the Black, Blue, and Maroon teams are all being combined into a new team — Purple. Each team will play the others three times each.
Opening night is Wednesday night, July 22 at 7:00 p.m. Click here to access the new schedule.
However, anyone who wants to play in 2020 MUST read, sign, and submit the league’s Waiver and Release Form for Communicable Diseases Including COVID-19.
Returning and New Players
For those returning and new (subject to open available roster spots) players interested in playing, sign up here.
NOTE: For the best experience when registering and paying — and to avoid any potential issues — please do NOT use Microsoft Internet Explorer. Instead, use Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, or Microsoft Edge instead.
The cost to play in the Lynnfield Men’s Over-40 Softball League in 2020 is the same as the last few years, $140 per player (non-refundable), which consists of the league’s $110 Registration Fee plus a $30 Town of Lynnfield Field Assessment Fee.
Online Registration Process
All players are required to read and electronically “sign” the league’s 2020 Waiver & Release Form on this page before you’ll be able to proceed with the actual registration and payment process.
All you need to do is complete the brief form below — which includes selecting your desired team to play on in 2020 along with also indicating your shirt size* from those two respective drop-down menus — check the “I Agree” box, and click the “Submit” button.
(For new players, if you don’t have a specific team in mind you wish to play for, please select the “No Preference” option and you will be assigned a team based on available open slots and existing roster sizes.)
When you have submitted that form successfully, you will be redirected to the separate Online Registration Payment page where you’ll be able to pay either via PayPal, if you happen to have an account with that service, or with a valid credit or debit card. All transactions are secure. You will then receive a message within several minutes, sent to the email address you provide, confirming your payment was successfully received.
