Scott Bushley of Cohasset, Massachusetts, draws upon more than 20 years of investment management experience in his role as the finance and business operations partner at Granite Point Capital in Boston. Beyond his professional endeavors, Scott Bushley serves on the Board of Directors of the Cohasset Youth Baseball & Softball Association (CYBSA).

The CYBSA plays its games at more than a dozen locations throughout Massachusetts, one of which is Hollingsworth Park in Braintree. Often referred to as Hollingsworth Playground, the facility had playground equipment that was installed in the 1980s before it was torn down as a result of safety concerns. However, the Town of Braintree received $145,787 from the state to construct a new playground in 2014.

Regarding baseball, Hollingsworth Park’s Michael F. Dunn Little League Complex has five baseball diamonds, including Christopher Duffy Field, which is designated for tee-ball. The others have dimensions that are suitable for players ranging from 8 to 12 years old. The largest diamond, William G. Brooks Field, has lights and is often used for premier summer travel games. The park also has a snack bar that was constructed by volunteers in 2011.
