Sol Yas: Hall of Fame inductee (class of 2020)
The UMass-Amherst and Boston College MBA graduate has been involved in the Cape League for over 25 years. He was the GM of the Brewster Whitecaps for seven years, winning a league championship in 2000. As GM, Yas helped recruit and oversee hundreds of Whitecaps players, including Sean Casey and Bobby Kielty, whom he presented into the CCBL Hall of Fame. He has been the senior deputy commissioner and director of officiating since 2001. As a league official, Yas works closely with the CCBL commissioner, other deputy commissioners and the league's umpire assigner, Nick Zibelli. A major highlight each summer is overseeing the home run hitting contest at the All-Star game, and helping select the Star of Stars Playoff MVP. Yas was inducted into the Rhode Island Senior Baseball League and LA Dodgers Adult Baseball Camp Halls of Fame. He has umpired high school, Babe Ruth, AAU and Little League baseball. Yas was the recipient of the Cape League’s Richard Sullivan Executive of the Year Award in 2009, and the 2019 recipient of the Fred Ebbett Lifetime Achievement award. Yas was born in Montreal and grew up in Brookline, Mass., where he played on the varsity baseball team. He currently lives in North Easton.
