EMASS Players help "Shamrocks" win Framingham Men's Division III Championship
Led by Player/Manager Larry Fegan, pitcher Mike Carroll and third basemen Joe Dorr, the "Shamrocks" completed a 3 game sweep of the final series to win the championship of Framingham's Division III. The "Old Guys" were joined by their sons Casey Carroll and Joe Dorr Jr (as well as several of their friends) and posted a 14 - 7 record for a second place finish in the highly competitive league. After falling behind 3rd place finisher DMW Painting in the semi-finals by two games to none, the Shamrocks stormed back to win 6 straight games en route to the crown. Several other EMASS players also saw some action with the Shamrocks during the season including Andy Zupan, Steve Elkinson, Tommy Regan, Steve Poole, Cliff Roberts, Dave Hadden, Norm Cronin, Larry Bagley and Rob Podoloff. A special nod goes to guest 3rd base coach Bill "wave 'em home" Bertrand.

CUBA/USA EMASS FRIENDSHIP GAMES -- DECEMBER 2015
A Letter of Thanks
For the past seven years over 100 EMASS players have participated in a Friendship Tournament in Cuba. Several players have also hosted Cuban players here for Friendship Games in Boston, Jamaica Plain, and Wayland and for the Cape Cod Tournament. Even more have had the opportunity to play ball with them. Just recently the US reopened diplomatic relations. Here is a copy of a letter we just received.
"Dear EMASS Friends!
Just now Cuban TV News are broadcasting that Cuba-USA embassies officially opened.
For us that means that a new era for our country is coming up. A better future for our families, for our grandchildren, for all the Cuban people.
In all this last years the huge effort made by ETA, by EMASS friends helped to reach this historic moment.
In the name of all of our families and friends we would like to express an immense gratitude to you, to Kathy, to Dariem, and to Yaimet and to your families and to all the EMASS friends.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
The Cuban Veteranos Team"
The Friendship Games Continue
This year, EMASS Members are invited to participate in Friendship Games in Havana. The dates are December 2 - 10. Mike Eizenberg says the Games will be extra special this year. "Gerardo Hernandez, a Member of the Cuban Nacional Assembly, has invited us to the most special celebration ever at his Finca and we have also been invited to the newly opened US Embassy. There will be plenty of great softball, and we will be guests of the Industriales at a major league Cuban baseball game. For details, please contact Gary Siegel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
