2018 Opening Night Social
by posted 01/14/2018


Glastonbury Amateur Baseball (GAB) and Glastonbury High School (GHS) Baseball will be hosting the opening of the 2018 baseball season with the annual “Opening Night Social”. The event will take place at 7 PM Friday March 2, 2018 at the Riverfront Community Center (300 Welles Street).

This fun event celebrates the start of the 2018 Glastonbury Baseball Season and is a primary fund raiser for Glastonbury Baseball.  Last year’s Social  helped fund new field equipment for GHS and dugout improvements at Smith Middle School. This year we will be working on a new storage shed for GHS as well as new uniforms for the GAB American Legion team. 
 
 In addition, the generous support from attendees and sponsors for this event enables GAB to offer the lowest registration fees for summer and fall competitive travel baseball for approximately 20 teams and 275 players.

The evening’s itinerary is as follows:

        7:00 PM         Social hour, cash bar 

        7:45 PM         Dinner  (Food provided by First & Last)

        8:30 PM         Speaker - Dennis Accomando GHS Varsity Baseball Coach

With Little League and GHS tryouts right around the corner; the annual baseball social provides the local baseball community an opportunity to renew acquaintances and start talking baseball while supporting our Glastonbury programs.

Music this year is by Tim and John Cummiskey of Written Warning.

Tickets are available in advance for $45 per person. Accompanying raffles and silent auction prizes are also part of the evening.

GAB 15U American Legion Concludes Undefeated Fall Season
by posted 10/15/2017


Front Row: Coach Rich Anderson, Myles Lushing, Thomas Aloise, Spencer Azzara, Patrick Flaherty, Luke Vartenigian, Garrison Case and Coach Brian LaPlante Back Row: Coach Dan Beagle, Daniel Beagle, Aaron Pelletier, Andrew Fontaine, Jack Hallisey, Luke Fahey

Glastonbury Amateur Baseball 15U American Legion team concluded an undefeated 13–0 fall season with a 4 to 1 championship victory over Tolland at Riverfront Park.  Glastonbury’s pitching trifecta of Garrison Case (3 innings 5K’s), Spencer Azzara (3 innings 2K’s) and closer Daniel Beagle  (1 inning 2 K’s), silenced a strong hitting Tolland team that had scored 15 runs in their opening round playoff game. Glastonbury’s offense was led by Luke Vartenigean, Daniel Beagle and Garrison Case who each had a hit and 1 RBI. Defensive gem of the game was turned in by GAB catcher Joe Zeppieri who made a diving play to end the top half of the 4th inning with runners on and Glastonbury behind 1 to 0.  Glastonbury then scored 4 runs in the bottom half of the 4th to secure the lead and eventual Championship.
