News and Announcements
Hi MGSL Families,
CALLING ALL PARENTS, COACHES, PAST PLAYERS, EVERYONE!!! As most of you are aware, MGSL consist of 100% voluntary board members. Most of which no longer have children playing in the league, whom have moved on. We are extremely excited to announce that Joe DiBattista has accepted the position of Vice President. Joe is a great dad & coach, who’s daughter plays at the U10 level. Unfortunately Joe only has a couple of other active board members, which just isn’t enough to run the league.
We are asking for anyone who is interested in being part of the board to attend our OPEN BOARD MEETING on October 14th at the Timony Grammar School Cafeteria at 6:30pm.
We are truly hoping for a great turnout. This is an opportunity to learn what being a board member entails and how it can be such a rewarding experience.
Unfortunately, if we are not able to attain enough volunteers, It pains us to say that we will have to consider cancelling the 2022 season, and even worse the league itself. We would hate for it to come to this, but it would leave us with no other choice.
Please consider attending the meeting to learn more about what it entails.
We take a lot of pride in the years of success that the league has had in developing not only softball players, but more importantly team players and friendships.
We hope that we can continue to provide this opportunity to the youth girls of Methuen, and having you as a part of OUR TEAM to make that happen.
Please send any questions to email@example.com

In order for the league to have continued success, please consider taking part in creating lifetime memories and experiences for the young athletes of Methuen by becoming a board member.
MGSL is a group of volunteers that dedicate their time and effort to ensure the girls thrive, learn, and have fun. We need your help to continue providing the girls this opportunity.
We have several volunteer board members that have dedicated years to MGSL, while their daughters played and have continued to do so years after they moved onto high school. They are leaving the board, which leaves some big holes to fill, and WE NEED YOUR HELP!
