In a cold but fun day of games the home clubs won the day. In the first game the Essex Base Ball Club took on the Mudville Base Ball Club of Holliston, MA and behind the strong all around team play won the game 20-3.
In the second game Essex took on their good friends the Dirigo Club of Augusta Maine and again came out victorious 15-3. The Essex Club was aided by the return of Dave “Country Boy” Nelson from a two-year absence.
In the final and most exciting game of the day the Lynn Live Oaks squared off against the Dirigo Club. In a back and forth match the Live Oaks pulled off a bottom of the 9th walk off hit to capture the win 17-16.
