Welcome to the home of ITBL Baseball

The Inter-Town Baseball league is comprised of teams from 8 Massachusetts towns and 1 New Hampshire town.  Boys and girls from Byfield/Newbury, Georgetown, Groveland, Merrimac, Newburyport, Rowley, Salisbury, West Newbury and Seabrook, NH between the ages of 9 and 12 play in two divisions.  The minors division plays on a 46/60 little league regulation diamond and the majors division plays on a 50/70 diamond.  The goal of the majors division is to better prepare the young players for their transition into Babe Ruth where they will play on a 60/90 major league regulation diamond.  Each division also hosts an All Star game midway through the Spring season.  The Inter-Town baseball league offers youth players a competitive environment, but most importantly a place for them to have fun and learn the art of baseball.


When it comes to sports, we all strive for perfection, but we also know it seems like an impossible feat.  Well the boys from the Byfield Newbury Pirates minors team proved it is possible.

Two pitchers combined to throw a perfect game on Tuesday, May 9th.  Ben M. almost got it done by himself as he was 1 out, 1 pitch really, away from a complete perfect game.  Ben went 5 2/3 innings and recorded 17 outs with an impressive 16 strikeouts and 1 pop out.  Unfortunately, Ben reached his pitch count limit of 75 pitches just 1 pitch shy of possibly throwing his own perfect game, but Alex M. came in relief and threw 1 pitch for a strike to record the 18th and final out and complete the perfect game.

Congratulations to Ben, Alex and the Byfield Newbury Pirates for this amazing accomplishment!
