2021 will be the 11th season for the Stoneham Sabers in the Yawkey Baseball League under the leadership of Manager Angelo Colucci. Stoneham quickly established themselves as one of the league's top teams, with top pitching and exceptional offense. The Sabers have made playoff appearances in all but their inaugural season, including 6 appearances in the league semifinals. Field manager Angelo Agiorgousis will return for his third season. Colucci and Agiorgousis were part of the coaching staff that helped the Yawkey League capture the 8th Annual Eastern Massachusetts Baseball Classic in 2019, to put the YBL back on top of the amateur baseball circuit in New England. However, due to COVID the annual event was cancelled last year. Coach Joe Laurina, who has been an instrumental part of the coaching staff since their inaugural season will return for his 11th season. Captain Ryan Flanagan will bring his leadership for an 11th season as well, along with Sabers' ace, Sam "The Bull" Cummings who will play in his 11th season. Colucci, Flanagan and Cummings are the only players left from the original team back in 2011. Slugger Jon Chapman has also been a long time Saber since 2012 as well.
