On Saturday September 15th the Essex Nine matched up against their long time rivals the Melrose Pondfeilders in the first two matches of three. In both games the Essex Nine was able to limit the Pondfeilder offense and score at will winning both ends of the doubleheader. In the third game a mixed nine took on the Mudville Base Ball Club. In a back a forth game the mixed nine was able to come out on top. Close to 1,300 fan came out to the festival. http://muisephoto.wordpress.com/2012/09/19/essex-base-ball-vintage-league-at-the-farm/
Sunday in Essex Base Ball Association play the Lowell Nine took on the Newburyport Clamdiggers. The Clamdiggers were a little short handed but the Lowell Nine showed no mercy piling on runs winning both sides of the doubleheader.
