The 2018 Granby Cubs Men’s Senior Baseball League (MSLB) finished its inaugural season in the 25-plus division at the end of July and are looking forward to the 2019 season. The team was very competitive, but it is moving to the 35-plus division. The Cubs are looking for additional players for the 2019 season, so if you’re 35ish or older and are interested in playing baseball again or want more information, please contact us at:

The Cubs also sent five representatives to the MSBL 25-plus All-Star Game that was played at Dunkin’ Donuts Park in mid-September. Players Bill Hallam, Mike Joseph, Chris Mele, Nick Mele, and Coach Leo Mele represented the team at the game. The Cubs players represented the National League team, which won the contest 7-2. The All-Star game and home run derby are the league’s biggest charity event. The league raised over $2,000 for Wounded Warriors and the American Cancer Society.

The team would again like to thank its 2018 sponsors: Beacon Mechanical; The Patchwork Schoolhouse; Tim’s Automotive; Route 10 Tire; Hayes-Huling & Carmon Funeral Home; All Dogs Zone, LLC; Signature Flight Support; and the donations from Windsor Federal Savings and Beman Hardware. Please like and follow the group on Facebook at: Granby Cubs. As the Cubs look forward to the 2019 season, it seeks sponsors to help with team costs.
