FIELD CLEANUP DAY

 

Field Clean-up Day Success!!

 

Thanks to everyone who came out for the field clean-up day on Saturday and helped out with the fields.  The turnout was tremendous and we were really able to prep the fields prior to the first practices later next week.  There were tons of kids, moms, dads, siblings, all putting in a great effort.

 

For those who missed it, we may schedule a mini opening day "prep" session later in April, to do some painting and finishing touches before the parade.  Ron Shamus (our Fields Director) will hold a brief clinic on how to line the fields and batters box for anyone who is interested.

Fruit Street Athletic Facility

 
Dear HLL Families,
 
On Monday, Oct 26 at 7pm, there is a special town meeting at the high school.  While the primary item on the agenda is the new Center School, there is also an Article on the agenda that I would request your support.
 
Parks & Rec has a proposal to build an athletic facility at Fruit St.  While it will benefit a number of groups, one of the primary functions will be to house an indoor batting & pitching cage area for Little League baseball and softball. This will serve as a great resource for our teams and players who want to practice indoors. Currently teams and coaches need to go to facilities at MetroWest, Milford and Westboro and pay $$ to rent a cage for 30 min.  This will bring the opportunity to pitch and hit for the kids virtually year round.
 
I ask that you come out and attend the meeting and support Article 8 for the Fruit St. Athletic Facility.  If it passes on Monday, then it would go on the ballot for the special election in early November.  
 
Thanks,
Fran

High School Game of the Week!

 

Update

Hopkinton will host Holliston in the FOX25 GameDay Game of the Week for Week Five.  It was a record-setting week as almost 30,000 fans cast their vote for this week's game.  Hopkinton enters the matchup 2-2 and looking to upset the undefeated Panthers of Holliston, who beat Westwood on the road last Friday night.

Thanks for your support!

 

Hello All HLL families,

While not directly a baseball or softball event, in the spirit of supporting the greater HOP athletic community, please take a look at the note below that was passed along from one of our HLL families. 

There is a big game this Friday night against Holliston High School! Please vote for Hopkinton vs. Holliston for a chance to be entered in Fox25 News High School Game of the Week!! It is very quick.  Ms. Stickney passed along this suggestion.  She coaches cheerleading at the high school.  We're currently tied with Billerica/North Andover.

Thanks everyone! :)
