1969 - 2007

My name is Glen Crooker and I am the current Northeast Baseball League Commissioner. I am from Stoneham and have been Coaching the Stoneham Team since 1985. I first started Coaching in Stoneham Little League in 1973. Since then I have been on a trip that at this point I could write a book. Stories that I am always telling my ballplayers every year in hopes to motivate them, build their confidence and help them mature into good if not great baseball players.  I am not an expert when it comes to teaching baseball, but have had many Coaches, Hitting instructors, and Pitching instructors along the way, that with their expert advise, been able to pass this on to my ballplayers. Some of the people who have helped me played Pro ball, or are Collage Coaches and High School Coaches. I saw 4 kids from Stoneham sign pro contracts, and several kids get baseball scholarships to play Collage Baseball.


From the way I understand the purpose of this League, every city and town who enter a team in our league are playing the kids who basically

make up next years High School Varsity Team.  The League originated back in 1969, and was organized by the Wakefield High School Varsity Coach - Larry McShane, and our first League Commissioner, George E Koulouris. From what people tell me George Koulouris was the major influence and did all the organizational work. There were 4 teams in 1969 and it appears they were Coached by that towns varsity coach mostly, and some other people who worked with the High School Coaches:  Lynnfield, Reading, Stoneham and Wakefield.


Their team was next springs High School Team. The word, unofficially was, “If you do not play for me on the summer team, do not plan

on playing for me on the High School Varsity Team next spring!”  When the word was out, there were many cities and towns that wanted to

get involved so as time went on it was decided to set up 2 divisions. Some teams were too far to travel to, so at first teams only played other teams in their own division. Then a playoff format was set up to cross over to the other division and play a 2 out of 3 series to determine League Champions.  1970, It was Melrose, Reading, Stoneham and Wakefield.


1971, The word among High School Coaches was out, and they wanted to put a team in the League. 9 Teams were established, Bedford,

Burlington, Medford, Reading, Stoneham, Wakefield, Wilmington, and Winchester.


1972, Coaches in the Merrimack Valley League wanted to get in the League. So it was decided to have 2 divisions, the North and the

South. 14 teams were in the League, Bedford, Burlington, Chelmsford, Everett, Lowell, Lynnfield, Medford, Melrose, Reading, Stoneham,

Tewksbury, Wakefield, Wilmington and Winchester.


1973, The League had 16 teams, Bedford, Billerica, Chelmsford, Everett, Lowell, Lexington, Lynnfield, Melrose, Nashua NH, Reading, Stoneham,

Wakefield, Wilmington, Winchester, Tewksbury, and Dracut.

In all the years as a Coach here in Stoneham I have never seen a player

hit for the cycle, Single, Double, Triple, Homerun. At this game Stoneham’s

Jimmy Palmer hit the cycle as shown in the score book page attached.



                    Jimmy Palmer , at Chelmsford 2004


Jimmy I believe is the only player to ever hit for the cycle in a

Northeast League Allstar Game.
