The Al Thomas Club took the field on May 12 with a bunch of new faces against an old rival, the McKay Club. The 2007 season opener proved a fortuitous one as the A's squeaked out a 4-3 with the potential tying run stranded at third to end the game.

Aidan Powers went the distance, striking out 6 in yielding 2 earned runs. The defense turned 3 double plays, added a pickoff, and rightfielders Chris Malloy and Matt Hallisey threw out runners at home and third, respectively.

Mark Daly led the offense with 2 hits, a walk and an rbi. Malloy picked up the other rbi, while Brian Powers, John Kostas and Peter Moores rounded out the hit list.

On Monday, May 14, the Thomas Club defeated Malden 11-3. John Kostas battled through 6 innings of 5-hit ball with no earned runs and 7 K's. Rookie Andrew "Bean" Besegai tossed the final frame, picking up 2 whiffs of his own.

Sixteen-year-old seasoned veteran Dan McCarthy lined a 2-run single in the 2nd inning and added another single and a walk to lead 4 players with 2 hits, the others being Chris Malloy, Brian Powers, and Matt Hallisey. Liam Powers (3 rbi), Mark Daly (2 rbi), John Kenny and rookies Colin Sheedy, Andrew Besegai and Ryan Ciampa all contributed base hits.
