Arlington is rich in baseball tradition and the newly-founded Arlington Trojans Inter-City League (ICL) Team continues that proud history. Arlington High School holds the Massachusetts record for most consecutive years in the state tournament, and many of its players have been drafted into the professional ranks. Arlington Little League and Babe Ruth continue to be wildly popular. The Inter-City League has brought a tradition of amateur baseball excellence to the Boston area since 1950 by providing college athletes and ex-professionals a competitive summer environment to play ball. This summer’s inaugural Arlington Trojans ICL Team showcases talented, competitive college and amateur baseball players, including many high-profile athletes who will make a big impact on league play from the first inning.
The Arlington Trojans roster will showcase many players from competitive college programs such as Endicott, Gettysburg, Babson, Colby, Suffolk, Southern New Hampshire, Southern Maine, and Assumption. Coach Hart’s goals are to continually field a competitive team, develop his players to compete at the professional level, and to provide a competitive team experience for former professional players who still have the burning desire to compete.
The Trojans’ home park—Summer Street Field in Arlington, is referred to by some as the “pearl of the north shore.” This field has been synonymous with Arlington baseball for years and the Trojans expect to continue this tradition of great baseball under the lights of Summer Street on many warm summer nights to come. As actively-engaged members of the Arlington baseball community, The Trojans will maintain and upgrade the playing field during the season, and provide free clinics for youth players to further motivate kids to pursue the joy of playing baseball.Rosters for all ICL teams are still open.
