Published May 27, 2020 By STEPHEN MARTELLUCCI LYNNFIELD — This spring season was slated to be the final one for one of Lynnfield High’s biggest rivals, Masconomet, in the Cape Ann League. However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, that will not be the case as the season was canceled. In September, Masconomet will be moving to the Northeastern Conference. Masconomet was in discussions with the NEC for six months and back in October the league principals officially extended the invitation.

In a normal season, the team would play 28 regular-season games starting in early June with three rounds of playoffs ending in late August. However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this summer will look a little different. On May 6, the league had a Board of Directors meeting on Zoom to discuss the 2020 schedule. Back on April 28, Governor Charlie Baker extended the stay-at-home date until May 18. “We are looking to play this summer,” said Bulldogs second-year manager Len Ferrari. “We have secured four or five fields so far.” As discussed during the meeting, the directors are planning on playing a 16-game schedule...
