The Holyoke Paperweights were a professional minor league baseball team based in Holyoke, Massachusetts, USA, that played in the now defunct Connecticut League from 1903 to 1911. From 1907 to 1911, they were also known as the Papermakers.[1] In 1905, the team won the league pennant.[2]

In June 1911, the Connecticut League ejected the Northampton and Holyoke clubs for "failure to pay their debts."[3]
