North Shore Tigers and The Academy to Merge

Two of the North Shore’s top youth baseball programs, the North Shore Tigers (based out of Lynn) and The Academy (based out the Route 1 Sportplex), will be merging to form one super program that will operate under one program.

The new program will practice and workout at The Sportplex on Route 1 in Danvers.   The program will feature as many as 20 teams for the 2017 season ranging from U9 - U18.  The strength of the program will be, “developing young players to meet their full potential for high school and beyond,” said The Academy Program Director Chris Conway.”   Conway continued, “the timing is right for these two programs to combine, we now have access to more players, facilities and coaches and I am thrilled with this merger.”

The program will take advantage of their top-notch indoor facility including 11 batting cages, a 30,000 square foot indoor field and the 2,000 square foot weight and workout facility.  In addition, all team members will have access to the renowned Recruiting Edge Baseball program run by The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Scout Ryan Leahey.  Leahey is also an instructor with the program handling infield and hitting. 

“I am very excited for this merger,” said North Shore Tigers Founder Al Donovan.  “A ton of hard work has gone into getting both of these programs off the ground the last 5 years.  We now have the strength of both programs which will only benefit all of our players and families.”

The U10 Purple Tigers traveled to Northborough, MA to take part in the Perfect Game Super 25.  The team had the opportunity to play against 4 very talented teams: Poughkeepsie, NY, Legends Prospects, Triple Crown Kings and Team Nokona.  The Tigers would face Poughkeepsie, NY a very talented team and would open the tournament with a loss in 4 innings 14-4.  In game two under the lights the team would take a strong Legends Prospect team that was well coached.  The Tigers had Colby Godwin on the bump and with Colby throwing darts and going 5 1/3 innings, while hitting a bases loaded triple and Drew White coming in for the save in the 6th to squeeze out an 8-7 victory over Legends Prospects.

New England AAU Memorial Day CHAMPIONS

The U9 North Shore Tigers traveled down to Rhode Island for the AAU Memorial Day Blast tournament that started on Friday and ended on Monday. The Tigers would beat a very strong Hawk Valley Panthers team 8-3 to capture the New England AAU Memorial Day Blast tournament in Rhode Island.  The Tigers also increased there record to 13-1 overall heading into this upcoming Sunday's showdown with the Quincy Red Stockings Red team in Quincy.

The Tigers would go 5-0 in the tournament beating the Milton Knights, Connecticut Mustangs, Attleboro Badgers, Plymouth Noreasters and Hawk Valley Panthers to capture the Title.  The Tigers scored 54 runs over the Tournament while allowing 26 runs. The wins were a direct result of pure teamwork. A variety of different pitchers stepped up to the task, Kyle Rush and Dawson DiBarri took the mound and helped their team, Kyle was a small ball force at the plate bunting with 4 basehit bunts. Jacob Behn won 2 games for the Tigers with pinch running situations. Stevie Migliero had a fantastic weekend at the plate with clutch hits and Dawson DiBarri was fantastic on the bump, not having pitched much this season he stepped up and was a great help to his team. This 9u team has proved what hard work and being a solid team together will result in. This organization is very proud of these boys and we look forward to our final division series coming up next week in Quincy.
