Hall Steps Down As Commissioner of Futures League

December 4, 2018

CHELMSFORD -- The Futures League has announced that Christopher Hall is stepping aside as commissioner of the league effective Dec. 31 to pursue other opportunities. Hall was a founding member of the Futures League and its first commissioner dating back to the league’s inception in 2011.

“After eight years at the helm of the Futures League, now is the right time for me to step aside as commissioner. I am so proud of the league that we founded and rapidly built into one of the greatest summer collegiate leagues in the entire country,” said Hall.

“This past summer, the Futures League again had the best attendance in New England and ranked second in the entire country for average attendance,” Hall continued. “Also, two of our alums -- Chris Shaw and Tyler Bashlor -- made their MLB debuts with the San Francisco Giants and the New York Mets, respectively. Beyond that, we have had upwards of 150 FCBL players, including many local New England players, drafted by MLB organizations and dozens of others playing professionally with independent teams.”

Futures League Board Chair and Worcester Bravehearts owner, John Creedon, Jr., said, “The entire Futures League family -- owners, staff, players, coaches, and fans -- owe Chris Hall a huge debt of gratitude for creating and leading such a spectacular baseball league.”
