The Essex Nine traveled up to beautiful Thomas Point Beach in Brunswick Maine this past weekend to take on the Dirigo Base Ball Club. Despite the blistering hot weather two fine games were played with the Essex Nine winning both games 8-7 and 9-5. As always Bill “The Undertaker” Gendall kept the Dirigo batters off balance with his hurling. The offense was led by Brian “Cappy” Sheehy who baffled the Maine boys with his fair fouls. The Essex Club would like to thank the Dirigo guys for their hospitality and look forward to seeing them next season.
