On Saturday Essex faced off against their long time foe the Melrose Pondfielders at Perley Elementary School in Georgetown, MA. The games were sponsored by the Georgetown Historical Society and were well attended. The games saw the Essex Nine in mid season form handling the Pondfielders easily in both games. The Essex squad would like to thank Melrose for making the trip up and the Georgetown Historical Society for putting together a fine event. Check out the photo section for some pictures of the day.
On Sunday the Lynn Live Oaks traveled to Fitchburg to take on the up and coming Fitchburg Rollstones. The Live Oaks were able to split the doubleheader with the Rollstones.
Unfortunately the 7th annual Hot Dogs and Hits event on Monday night was canceled in Danvers due to harsh rain. There has been no indication of a make up.
