The Boston Cannons are a professional men's field lacrosse team based in Boston, Massachusettsmarker. Since the 2001 season, they have played in Major League Lacrosse. From 2006 to 2008, they were in the Eastern Conference. From the league's inception in 2001 through 2005, they were in the American Division. With the MLL contraction for the 2009 season from 10 to 6 teams (due to the state of the U.S. economy), there will only be one division/conference.

Franchise History

The Boston Cannons is one of the original six teams of Major League Lacrosse (MLL). MLL was founded by Jake Steinfeld, Dave Morrow, and Tim Robertson. The Boston Cannons Founder and President is Matt Dwyer. From their inaugural season of 2001 through 2003, the Cannons played their home games at Cawley Memorial Stadiummarker in Lowell, Massachusettsmarker. In 2004, they moved to Nickerson Fieldmarker at Boston Universitymarker where they played through the 2006 season. In 2007, they moved to Harvard Stadiummarker in Allstonmarker, a neighborhood in Boston, Massachusettsmarker which is less than 2 miles from Nickerson Field and also less than 2 miles from the Cannons' main office in Boston, Massachusettsmarker. Boston has qualified for the MLL playoffs 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, and 2006. The Cannons won the 2004 and 2005 American Division championships.

On March 20, 2007, the Cannons completed a trade with the Washington Bayhawks. In the trade, the Cannons gave up Connor Gill and Ryan Curtis and in return they got Michael Powell, Ben DeFelice, and a 2008 conditional draft choice. The Cannons selected Paul Rabil as the first overall pick in the 2008 MLL Draft.

Community Involvement

The Cannons often reach out to the local community, hosting a variety of lacrosse camps and events for local youth. In addition, the Cannons support MetroLacrosse (metrolacrosse.com), their official charity, by arranging scholarships for MertroLacrosse players and donating tickets for each home game to MetroLacrosse players and families. MetroLacrosse also maintains a booth in the Fan Zone for each home game.
