"Party Time" at World Series Park in Saugus
wsp400.jpg
On Friday night, August 11, approximately 30 young people, boys and girls, decided
to party at World Series Park located behind the Belmonte Middle School in Saugus.
They tore down a downspout, tried to force their way into the building by kicking and
 
ramming two doors, broke glass liquor bottles in the parking lot, strewed beer cans
in the pavilion and the surrounding area, overturned trash barrels, and broke into
a dugout and onto the playing field.
  This happened from 11:30 pm to 12:15 am. 
All of this was either found by park superintendent Bob Davis Saturday morning
or shown on surveillance tape.
  The tape has been turned over to the Saugus Police
Department to help identify the people involved.
wsp-pavillion2.jpg
Bob Davis said “Viewing the tape made me sick to my stomach.  To have all the work
that’s been put into making World Series Park a first-class baseball facility disrespected
like this is disgusting.
  I just hope the police can identify those involved and prosecute them.”  

Two signs are prominently displayed at the park.  They clearly spell out what’s expected
of intruders after dark.  One reads: “Warning: All activities are recorded to aid in the
prosecution of any crime committed against this facility.”  The other refers to a Town
of Saugus bylaw and states:  “No trespassing:  Any person who loiters or habitually
congregates in any school yard, park, playground, bike or walking path between
sunset and sunrise shall be considered a trespasser and may be arrested without
warrant. Town of Saugus Bylaw 602.12”


Davis stated “The activities shown on the surveillance tape and the evidence that was
left behind clearly shows attempts of breaking & entering and destruction of property
by those individuals present Friday night.
  This kind of destructive activity should not
be tolerated.  It only effects and destroys good things that are happening in our town
such as World Series Park that has become a showplace and provides a first-class
facility for the youth of Saugus to play baseball.
  It’s ironic to see young people come
into the park and try to destroy what’s been created for them.”

If you have any information regarding this incident, please report it to the Saugus Police.

We encourage Saugus businesses to become
World Series Park Sponsors

World Series Park in Saugus depends on the support of Saugus businesses. 
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.
 

World Series Park hosts over 200 games each season.
 


World Series Park welcomes Cerra’s Market to Saugus 
cerras-sign.jpg
Cerra’s Market, a long time, family-owned business, is about to open on
Route 1 North on the site of the former Karl’s Sausage Kitchen.  Starting
this season they have willingly offered to be a World Series Park sponsor. 
Third generation owner Joe Cerra believes in serving the community by
not only catering to people’s food needs but also supporting causes that
make Saugus a better place to live, like World Series Park that provides
a great facility for the youth of Saugus to play baseball.


Cerra’s Market was formally Lynnfield Meat & Deli and will offer the same
great products and service they’ve provided since 1952.   In addition to
fresh cold cuts, they are a butchery and offer a large variety of prepared
foods that includes pasta, pizza, and subs.
  Cerra’s also does catering.   


World Series Park superintendent Bob Davis says “We very much
appreciate the Cerra family’s support and we encourage people try their
delicious and reasonably priced foods.
 We hope that other new and
established Saugus businesses will help us by purchasing advertising
signs and making donations.
  This kind of support is what got us started
and has kept us going over the last 13 years.  Saugus businesses that
have helped us deserve a lot of credit for making the park what it is today.”

World Series Park welcomes Casa Vallarta as a sponsor 

wsp-casa-vallarta.jpg
Casa Vallarta, a family-owned restaurant, has been open on Route 1 North  next to
Jimmy’s Steer House for the past 9 months.  Starting this season they have willingly
offered to be one of the park’s sponsors.  Owner Jose Ramos believes in serving
the community by not only catering to people’s eating needs but also supporting
causes that make Saugus a better place to live, like World Series Park that provides
a great facility for Saugus youth to play baseball.

Casa Vallarta serves authentic Mexican food, offering an extensive menu of traditional
Mexican dishes at reasonable prices, a great dining atmosphere and a full service bar. 
In addition to their Saugus location, they also have restaurants in Falmouth,
Northborough, and Cumberland, Rhode Island.

WSP superintendent Bob Davis says “We very much appreciate Casa Vallarta’s
support and encourage people to try them for some great Mexican food. 
We hope that other new and already established Saugus businesses will
help us by purchasing advertising signs and making donations.  This kind of
support is what got us started and has kept us going over the last thirteen years. 
The Saugus businesses that have helped us deserve a lot of credit for making
the park what it is today.”

Saugus Business Partnership Donates to World Series Park

The Saugus Business Partnership recently made their annual donation to
World Series Park.  The Partnership originally donated the park flagpole
back in 2004 and has been a supporter of the park every year.


The Saugus Business Partnership was formed by several Saugus businesses
several years ago for the purpose of supporting the community.  They have
donated to many groups and causes over the years.  They believe that it’s
important for businesses to give back to the community they serve.

2016-wsp-partnership-donati.jpg
World Series Park superintendent Bob Davis said:  “We very much appreciate
the Partnership’s yearly donation and their support of all that we’ve done over
the years.  They’ve always been willing to donate to the various fundraising
activities we’ve organized such as Special Olympics and TargetCancer. 
They never say no.”


Weather permitting, the 2016 season will start the first week of April with
Saugus High games followed by Saugus Wings and Saugus Babe Ruth games.
Last season World Series Park hosted over 200 games that included the
State Babe Ruth Tournament, several AAU tournaments, as well as adult
tournaments and a college tournament.

Little League that involves hundreds of Saugus girls from 4 to 16 years of age.

Saugus and will help to grow Saugus Softball.

appreciate the generosity of Wells Fargo for stepping up to donate our beautiful and

project are asked to make checks payable to Saugus Softball Little League
and send to Saugus Softball, P.O. Box 903, Saugus, MA 01906.

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
