After a long offseason, and tons of snow, you wonder how we will start this baseball season. Well, there are a couple of answers to that. One, coaches for the Majors have has practices in batting tunnels. Central Cambridge Youth Baseball has been using Extra Innings, Watertown as the center of none-field practice. In addition, Minors teams have practiced in the Morse School gym. 

“With the warmer weather, players have returned to Lindstrom Field for practices”, says Doug Feinburg, coach of the Orioles in the Majors. Also, Doug told me that there will be no delay to the start of the season due to the weather.

Lindstrom is in good condition and Magazine Beach field will be groomed shortly.

A bonus to the family aspect of coming to a game is the reviving of the Snack Shack, the push to make it more healthy and convenient has been led by an enthusiastic league official. “The goal is to build regular community activity at the field and to support Cambridge baseball,” says one league official I spoke to.

There has been an increase in enrollment this year as we have more than 80 kids registered in both farm and t-ball.

Games started just last week.
