Members of the Essex Base Ball Organization traveled to Manchester, NH this past Sunday to take part in the first Vintage Base Ball Day with the NH Fisher Cats- the AA Blue Jays. Members of the Essex Nine, Lynn Live Oaks, Boston Beaneaters, and NH Granite were honored before the game and Brian ‘Cappy’ Sheehy threw out the first pitch. On Monday four members of the Boston Beaneaters paired up with the Providence Grays to take on the NH Granite in one inning exhibition of 1886 rules following the American Defenders of NH game. It was a great weekend of baseball.
