Dorchester Baseball Looks To Revive Older Boys' Team

Play ball! That includes you older kids, too.

It appears an effort is underway to bring back older boys' baseball to Dorchester for next baseball season.  

This would be a 15 and under team.

The Dorchester Times has learned that the Dorchester Baseball/Softball Committee is inviting all Dorchester and surrounding community youth (15 years old and younger) to play for Dorchester's National League Baseball team.  

According to our records, Dorchester has not fielded a National League team since 2010, when Dorchester won the SFS League championship.  

Older records show that Dorchester was a dominant force in the SFS League's National League in the 1990s, '80s, '70s, '60s, and '50s -- the decade the league began.

There are many great opportunities to be had with the game of baseball -- one of which is creating lasting friendships.  

If your child would like to be part of a National League Baseball team experience and learn the importance of team play, fundamentals of the game, and personal growth, then consider joining the Dorchester National League Baseball Team.

Organizers say they want to take steps now to ensure Dorchester has a National Team for 2016.   

Those interested should contact Greg Tyser, Matthew Hoffman, or Stephanni Renn.  Also, click here and fill out the form with your child's information.

We commend the parents of those who are being pro-active in this effort.


  1. Please fill out this Google Form for your child and their interest in joining a great tradition of baseball in Dorchester.

  2. Is there any way to find out when the black and white photo was taken and who the players are? I believe the person in back row, third from the left is my dad Terry Feeken. Please get back to me if you can. Thanks, Eric Feeken

  3. I believe the player in question is Richard Slama. There is also Doug Sysel, Rex Johnson, Jim & Bill Clark, Larry Kaspar, John Retherford, Roger Justa, F.C. Green, Marty Kamper, Jim Zak, Gene Slama, Mike Neruda and others.
