2014 Tournament Details

The Boston Park League hosted the 15th Annual Dick Clegg – Howie Stein Golf Tournament on Monday, July 28, 2014 at the Easton Country Club. The Boston Park League named the Annual Golf Tournament in memory of Dick & Howie in 2000. With rain showers, we credit all the golfers who committed to playing, and showed up in support of the BPL.  At 9:30 am the sun broke through the clouds and we had beautiful weather the entire day.  It’s hard to figure that 25-30 miles away, Revere, was dealing with a tornado at the exact same time.

There were 66 golfers ready to go at game time.  The golfers enjoyed a continental breakfast upon arrival, an Italian buffet at the conclusion of their round, prizes were presented for 1st, 2nd, & 3rd place, along with closest to the pin and longest drive.  We concluded with a raffle that included 4 monster seats to a Red Sox game, an autographed Jon Lester game shirt (who was still a member of the Red Sox at the time but traded 3 days later to the Oakland A’s), and a Dustin Pedroia autographed baseball, all donated by the Red Sox Foundation.

About Our Honorees:

Dick Clegg passed away in December 1999.  He started umpiring in 1967, worked his way up through high school, to the college level, and into the Park League.  He and his partner Jim McNally quickly became the best the league had to offer.  Dick umpired a full college spring schedule, traveling all over New England.  In 1985 he became the BPL Umpire in Chief, and held that position for the next 14 years.  He was named Umpire in Chief of the Cape Cod League in 1998.  A past President of the Eastern Mass. Baseball Umpires Association, his dedication to baseball and umpiring was exemplary.  He also loved playing golf. with his son Rich.  Dick was elected to the BPL Hall of Fame in 2000.

Howie Stein passed away in March 2000.  Howie was not an athlete, but one of the most dedicated individuals to amateur baseball in the City of Boston.  His love for the game brought him to Cleveland Circle back in 1968 where he met Jerry McCarthy, manager of the Wolf Club, and helped out with the team.  In 1976 he joined Bill Mahoney’s Mary Anne’s Club,   He would take a batting helmet through the stands for donations to pay for equipment.  He announced the players.  He became General Manager of the highly successful Larkin Club, winning 3 straight championships.  He was the little guy with the big voice.  Howie was inducted into the BPL Hall of Fame in 2000, along with Dick.
