Leominster softball started 45 years ago at Doyle Field and then it moved to its permanent place Fournier Park when it was created. The league was originally run by the Leominster Recreation Department until the Recreation Department Budget was cut in the late 80’s. At that time a group of individuals assumed responsibility for the fields and running the league (LAMSA – Leominster Adult Mixed Softball Association).

The league flourished in the early days with as many as 56 teams playing. The level of interest dipped for a few years, but thanks to a insurgence of new players and a mixture of old and new board members the league is flourishing again and has seen low 40’s for number of teams over the last few seasons.

There are a number of reasons the league has flourished in the last few years, with a focus on improving the playing fields and overall park high on the list. Over the last few years 100’s of man hours have been invested in trying to revitalize this once pristine park. Along with the significant dollars that have been put into the Pop Warner field and basketball/tennis courts, the LAMSA organization has spent time cleaning the area surrounding the fields, updating old outdated dedication signs, new dugout bleachers, new scorer stands, updated bleachers, and many other improvements.
