News and Announcements
I hope everyone is well. HYBSA Spring seasons will begin on or about Monday 4/26 and Jim McGuinness, our umpire coordinator has scheduled a clinic for Sunday 4/18 at 2pm at Flagg Field. For those who can’t make that date, a second option is to attend his clinic is at Dacey Field in Franklin at 2pm on Saturday 4/17. This is a great opportunity for part time work for boys and girls 7th grade and older. All attendees should RSVP by Friday 4/16 via the attached link. The spreadsheet is also an opportunity to transition the line of communication from the parent to the potential umpire.
In order to be considered, you must attend one of these clinics. Existing umpires are expected to attend as a refresher.
As of April 3 but should be read for baseball any day now. Look for an email from your coach

The goal of HYBSA is to provide opportunities for the youth of Holliston to learn and play baseball in a safe atmosphere, build sportsmanship, and have fun. Discounts are available if registered by December 31st, 2018. Click on the REGISTRATION tab at the top of this page for more details.
The Holliston Sparker 8s finished 5-2-1 in the regular season which seeded them third entering the playoffs, including a first round bye. A regular season highlight was a resolute come from behind tie 5-5 against Framingham (the eventual tournament champion) after a controversial call early in the game. After defeating Bellingham in the quarterfinals Holliston lost to Hopkinton (last year’s Sparkler champion) in the semifinals . The Holliston boys played well for their first time playing together as a team. They learned a lot and continued to improve throughout the season. There were commanding performances as well as some tough losses but the Sparker 8s had a great time playing in the tournament!
Thanks to head coach Wayne Chestna, and assistant coaches Ben McDonald, Steve Raisman, Jim Faletra, Richard Brodsky, Matt Coletti and the numerous other parents that helped out this summer.
