2018 Triple Play Fall Ball season

Once again Triple Play had a successful fall ball season. We had 33 teams in 6 different divisions. The weather was excellent and we finished up with all schedules before the end of October except for the high school divisions. They finished up the first weekend in November.

 

We want to thanks Bolton Youth Baseball, Sterling LL and Clinton LL for the use of their fields and all the coaches and umpires who made this a great fall season.

 

The high school division had 7 teams and they ended the season with a single elimination tournament. The season was outstanding as many teams were very close together in the standings. In the semi finals Leominster, Coached by Jason Pare, played Triple Play Green, Coached by Chris Klingenberg, which was made up of Westford and Groton Dunstable players. In the other semi final was Triple Play White, Coached by Joe Schoolcraft/Charlie Ramsland, made up of Nashoba HS players against Acton Boxboro Gold, Coached by Mike Buonomo.

 

In the semi finals, Leominster ousted Triple Play Green in a close game and Triple Play White ousted Acton Boxboro Gold in a close game.

 

In the finals Leominster defeated Triple Play White 3-0 in 4 innings, called for darkness. Below are pictures of the winning Leominster Team and the runner ups, Triple Play White, for the third year in a row.

 

We hope you enjoyed the season and we want to thank everyone who participated and hope to see you all back next season.

                                    WINTER CLINICS WITH COACH CHIASSON

 

Coach Chiasson is accepting registrations for a series of 5-week hitting/fielding/throwing clinics starting in January 2018 thru the Spring.

Chiasson played College Baseball at Lowell University from 1979-1982, being named captain in 1982. Along with teammates Mike Bryant (father of NL MVP and World Series champion Kris Bryant and 1987 gold glove winner/10 year major league player Mike Lavalliere,), Chiasson batted .444 in 82’, winning the NE Div II batting title.

 

 Players will be taught all aspects of the game (hitting/throwing/fielding)

All clinics will include:

-      Use of weighted balls to increase bat speed/power, (swing thru the ball)

-      Mini baseballs for hitting (hand/eye coordination, less strikeouts)

-      Use of “soft hands gloves”, to help using both hands when catching

-      Ladder drills (to improve footwork and balance)

 

Each clinic will be limited to 5 players, (more reps)   

The cost of the 5-week clinic is $125. Below is a full list of clinics, along with my contact info. If anyone would like to put your own clinic together with times other than below, please let me know and we can work out the details. If you sign up for more than 1 clinic, you will be discounted $15 per additional clinic.

 

        GIFT CERTICATES ARE ALSO AVAILABLE FOR ANY CLINICS or ONE-on-ONE LESSONS
