Massachusetts State Champions in the 1970s


Pittsfield South and Swampscott both earned their first state titles in the 1970s, and neither league had to wait long for the second. Pittsfield won back-to-back titles in 1976 and 1977, while Swampscott's baby blue claimed top honors in 1978 and 1979. The leagues were the first repeat champions in Massachusetts since Winchester made consecutive World Series appearances in 1955 and 1956.

Arlington's leagues achieved an equally rare feat during the 1970s, as two different Arlington leagues won state titles in consecutive years. Arlington North defeated Brockton South to win the 1971 state title, and the next year Arlington West ousted Millbury to win its second ever state title.
