Harborlight's MomBall Team is Back and Looking for Players
Harborlight's MomBall Team is back and looking forward to starting practices soon, but they need more players. You can also help support our team and the Beverly MomBall program by purchasing raffle tickets with great daily prizes from many of Beverly's local businesses. Read more.
The MomBall tournament was started in 1999 by Eileen Moffet as a community building event. It quickly evolved into a friendly competition that fosters city-wide camaraderie and raises much needed funds for Beverly Public Schools and other local charities. All net proceeds from the tournament are donated.
Harborlight joined the MomBall community in 2018, with a team of 15 women with a wide range of softball experience. The Harborlight Team was welcomed by every team and the sense of community and sportsmanship made the team want to improve and return in 2019. In 2019, Harborlight scored runs and made great plays in the field and had so much fun encouraging one another as well as acknowledging what the other MomBallers accomplished.
After the event was canceled in 2020, Harborlight is looking to field a team for the third consecutive tournament. Practices will be held throughout the summer at Harborlight. The opening games of the tournament will be played on Friday, September 17. The double elimination tournament will continue on September 18 and 19.
The following schools are participating in the 2021 MomBall tournament: Alumni, Ayers, BHS, BMS, Beverly Saints Alumni, Centerville, Cove, Essex Tech, GUS, Hannah, Harborlight Montessori, North Beverly, and Saints Academy. If you would like to join the team or are interested in coming to a practice, please contact Lisa at email@example.com.
MomBall has had a food drive every year to benefit Beverly Bootstraps. We will share more information about this in September. This year MomBall teams are selling raffle tickets to support the cost of the tournament.
