After several off weeks and Cappy’s wedding the Essex Base Ball Organization returned to action this past week as the Boston Beaneaters traveled to Nashua, NH on Saturday May 31st to take on the NH Granite. In a hard fought game the Beaneaters were victorious 21-12. Chris “The Monkey” Sheehy took the mound and hurled all nine innings.
Later that night Brian “Cappy” Sheehy, Chris “The Monkey” Sheehy, and Pat “The Other” Foley traveled to Hingham, MA to participate in the Hingham Historical Societies Mike ‘King” Kelly fundraiser, which was held at the house Kelly lived in. The event was great and the players got to meet some very interesting people.
On Sunday the members of Lynn and Essex traveled to Dracut, MA to play against a group of middle school kids. The event was sponsored by the Lakeview Middle School PTO. The day was highlighted by a diving catch made by a middle schooler who went by the name “Tiny”.
