Founded in the winter of with the assistance of a financial grant from Consolidated Distributors of Auburn, Massachusetts, the Association was initially known as the Central Massachusetts Baseball Association. Design for this summer league was to revive adult baseball in a region that had a rich and long history of such leagues but saw this lapse after World War Two. Central Massachusetts teams that had been playing in other leagues some distance away returned to form the nucleus for the new Association. The remaining original teams included three other clubs from Worcester: City Club, theWarriors, and the Metros as well. The Auburn Rockets and Milford Nationals also competed in the original 8 team league.

The grays were down in the 6th. They put up 4 in the top of the 6th to take a lead, and added 2 more in the 7th for the win over the Black Sox. It was a great game that showcased the league. The game had a little bit of everything, great pitching, clutch hitting, a home run, and great defense. Everything you would want in a final game of the season.

Players in the league range in age from 18 to something, and hail from all over Boston and the Boston Metropolitan area even one team from New Hampshire. Regular baseball rules apply, with a few exceptions, such as no stealing and no head-first sliding, which league officials believe make for a more accessible and safer version of the National Pastime.
