Despite the threat of snow the Essex Base Ball Organization went ahead with their Irish Movie Night at the Baseball Tavern in Boston. The night was a success for us with a good crowd and great food. We would like to thank the Baseball Tavern for allowing us the opportunity to hold the event there and for providing us with great food. We would also like to thank our friends from Mudville for coming to support us.
We are working on having another movie night in Manchester, NH and maybe another at the Baseball Tavern so keep an eye out.
Movie Still On for Tonight……
Come join The Essex Base Ball Organization on Saturday January 10th, 7:00pm at The Baseball Tavern 1270 Boylston St. Boston, MA for a movie night fundraiser to help bring baseball history to Ireland. The Essex Base Ball Club will be showing the movie The Emerald Diamond, a 90-minute documentary about the Irish National Baseball Team. The film debuted to a sold out crowd in New York on February 25, 2006 and has been seen in over 20 theaters across the country since then. It has been featured by The New York Times, New York Post, FoxNews, USA Today, Chicago Tribune and National Public Radio. Along with the movie there could be members of the Irish National Baseball Team in attendance.
We will also have 19th century base ball material on display and will be having raffles through the night. We are asking for a $5 donation at the door and all proceeds will go to bringing the Essex Base Ball Club and 19th century base ball to Ireland in 2009. Come join us for a night of baseball and fun.
