Enjoy these 4 new podcasts, compliments of Andrew Tressler, all star journalist and good friend of the Essex Base Ball club. The whole crew is featured, including fan favorites: Cappy, Monkey, Q-Ball Cook, Greybeard, Mr. Bill the Undertaker, Murph and Stumbles. This installment comes in four episodes, which are quite long but definitely worth a listen if you are a fan of vintage baseball.

Opening Weekend

Opening weekend went well for the Essex squad taking both games in their round robin with the Melrose Pondfielders and the Fitchburg Rollstones.  The Essex Club would like to thank the Pondfielders and Rollstones for coming to Danvers, and we look forward to more games with both squads this season. Check our photo section for photos of the weekend.
