If the calendar says June is approaching, then itâ€™s time for another season of the Winthrop Adult Summer Basketball League. Weâ€™ve always liked the manner in which Peter Grimes has organized and coordinated the basketball league in this town. Yes, the league is competitive, but itâ€™s always been a fun-first type of league in which virtually all of the players know each other and respect each otherâ€™s abilities.
Â Co-commissioners Peter Grimes and Phil Lundberg are getting ready for another season of roundball. There is a mandatory meeting on Monday, June 8, at 6 p.m. at the Ingleside Courts for all prospective team representatives.
Â Sean Driscoll, director of the Winthrop Parks and Recreation Department, is available to answer any questions about the 2009 season. Itâ€™s great that Sean has made the continued operation of the league a priority. It always has been a wonderful summertime experience for its participants.
Â The one question facing the teams: Who is going to be able to dethrone the Winthrop High boys team as league champion? It wonâ€™t be easy.
