2019 - World Series Park Kicks-off Its 15th Season
The park has certainly prospered since it was built in 2004 by the World Series Park Committee,
a 501 (c)(3) non-profit, charitable organization.  
 
With the support of Saugus businesses and the
community at large, funds were raised to build
the field.  Since then a lot of
improvements have been made that include a clubhouse, dugouts,
a batting cage,
a playground, a pavilion, a state-of-the-art security system and a new infield. 
All made possible by financial donations and donations of workmanship.

Over 250 games are played every season at the park.  Teams who play games on the field are
Saugus High School Varsity and Freshmen, Saugus Babe Ruth, Saugus Wings AAU, 
Saugus American Legion and adult leagues. 
From early April through sometime
into November the park has a very busy schedule. 
Through the years, World Series Park has hosted vigils, baseball tournaments, Special Olympics,
Saugus Alumni Baseball games,
a TargetCancer fundraiser, Veterans/Military Appreciation Day.

“We're thrilled to kick off our 15th year and look forward to another exciting season of baseball
and bringing the community together,” said Bob Davis, World Series Park Superintendent. 
“Keeping the park vibrant takes the commitment of a lot of great people and long standing
support from great organizations who are connected with and care about Saugus.” 

The park will be busy this season with hundreds of games scheduled to host teams, fans,
and visitors in 2019.  Offering not only a great place for amateur baseball, World Series Park
has also become a place to honor and connect local leaders, charities, and businesses.

In 2015 World Series Park helped to raise funds for and supervised the building of the adjacent
softball field, currently used by Saugus Softball Little League and Saugus High softball.

World Series Park “Wall of Fame” available this 2019 Season
As a result of requests to donate to WSP, a “Wall of Fame” was erected.  
The idea for the “Wall of Fame” at World Series Park in Saugus was inspired
by 92 year old Ed Stetson, a longtime Lynn resident and World War II veteran
who has donated to every World Series Park project over the years. 

A ceremony unveiling and dedicating the WSP “Wall of Fame”
was held Saturday, July 28, 2018 at World Series Park in Saugus.

Since World Series Park is a publicly supported facility, it seems appropriate
to honor individuals, businesses, and organizations that are willing to offer their
support to help to continue providing a first-class place to play baseball in Saugus.  
Those interested in supporting World Series Park can have their name, inclusion of
their spouse’s name, inclusion of their family, business name, or organization name
on the plaque for a minimum donation of $100.  Donations may be made in honor
or in memory of loved ones.  The permanent 4 foot by 8 foot plaque
is located on the field side of the building and is lighted at night.

wsp-wall-of-fame-unveil.jpg

Bob Davis, superintendent of World Series Park said “We had an unbelievable response
last season.  Over 100 donations were made.  Since there’s still some room on the plaque,
we’ve decided to offer the opportunity to add names this season.  The plaque honors those
who donate, either for themselves or in honor or memory of love ones. 

World Series Park really appreciates the generosity of these donors. 
Our goal continues to be to provide a first-class facility for playing baseball in
Saugus and to encourage the youth of Saugus to play baseball.”   

Donations to World Series Park for inclusion on the Wall of Fame should be sent to:
World Series Park, 8 Holden Avenue, Saugus, MA 01906 
Checks should be made payable to:  World Series Park

Donations can also be made through the General Electric Matching Gifts Program.

New infield dedicated at World Series Park

A new infield was recently built at World Series Park. 
Sports Turf Specialties of Wrentham worked for about a week reconstructing the infield,
bringing it back to major league specifications.  This created a perfect infield to start
the 2018 baseball season.
wsp-infield.jpg
It was decided to name the infield The Dorothy Amsden Infield at World Series Park
to show appreciation for Dorothy Amsden’s numerous donations over the years. 
Dorothy is a generous person trying to make things better for the youth of Saugus.  

The plaque recently placed at the park reads: 
‘The Dorothy Amsden Infield at World Series Park  The generosity of Dorothy Amsden
has made it possible to build this new infield in September 2017.”

At the recent unveiling of the plaque Dorothy said:  “This honor is uncanny.  I was always
very athletic during my youth.  I was the only girl who played baseball with the local kids
in our back field.  Now, at my age (?) it’s a great pleasure seeing the results at WSP
of what sharing can do.  This personal feeling of giving is also uncanny.  If you see
something you can do, just do it.  Thank you Bob.”

scoreboard.  Wells Fargo truly cares about supporting the youth in our community.”  


The field was built completely with private donations: financial, labor and materials.

project are asked to make checks payable to Saugus Softball Little League

WSP "Let There Be Light!" Fundraising Project
World Series Park has kicked off a five-year
fundraising project to purchase lights for the ballpark. 
 Lights would provide the ability to have night games, would mean never having to call a game because
of darkness, daytime rain-outs could be rescheduled at night, provide the ability to play more games
and there would be more flexibility regarding the use of the field.  Parents who work during the day
could see there son or daughter play at night. 
The fundraising goal is a quarter of a million dollars,
which at last estimate would be the cost for a lighting system.  Donations are being accepted. 
Donations of $100 or more will entitle the donor’s name to be included on a permanent plaque. 
Donations can be made in memory of an individual. 
Please send donations to:  World Series Park, 8 Holden Ave., Saugus, MA 01906 
Checks should be made payable to World Series Park
 
A great way to donate is through the General Electric Matching Gifts Foundation. 
Any GE employee, retiree or spouse of a deceased retiree can qualify for
GE to match the amount of the donation. 

For information about this or any questions about the lighting fundraiser,
please contact Bob Davis at (781) 233 - 4555

or Bob Davis
out there mowing the grass,
raking the base paths, or setting the sprinklers to keep
the field neat, clean, and safe for the players and spectators.
A great big THANK YOU to Bob for everything he has done,
and continues to do,
at World Series Park.


The Public is welcome to use WSP Tot Park any day.

We encourage Saugus businesses to become World Series Park Sponsors


The World Series Park Committee, a volunteer-led, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization,
manages the park and is supported by the generosity of local businesses and residents.


Many Saugus businesses purchase advertising signs that are displayed on the outfield fence
each season.
  People who come to the park are encouraged to
support these businesses,
since without the support of these businesses the park wouldn’t be possible.
