For just the 4th time in our 20 year history, the Beast of the East will be returning to the Boston area on Saturday, August 28th. With the help of the Woburn Host Lions, we will be hosting teams from the East Coast in a four team tournament to crown the 2021 Champion.
The Boston Renegades, Philly Fire, New Jersey Titans, and Long Island Bombers, will face off at the Joyce Middle School located at 55 Locust Street in Woburn. Games will begin at 9:00 am, 11:30 am and 2:30 pm.
We need volunteers to take a 2.5 hour shift during the day. There will be three games being played during three time slots. We need help to fill the following roles on two fields for each game. Training will be provided. Roles we need help with include:
- Base umpires: (stand by our bases, set them up when they fall. Help alert the home plate umpire when a player reaches the base).
- Base switch operators: (sit on a chair in the shade. Control a switch that turns the bases on and off).
- Field umpires: (stand in the field. Help the home plate umpire determine if a player has possession of the ball).
- Home plate umpires: (Take control of the game. Have the final say on who is safe and have knowledge of umpiring and the rules of the sport).
