The four teams that were represented at Endicott Park on the last day of May could not have asked for better weather for their day of vintage base ball. The first game saw the Essex Base Ball Club matched up against the Fitchburg Rollstones for the fifth time this season. The series was tied 2-2 and the tie breaker saw the Essex Nine march off to an early lead and never look back taking the game 10-3. In the second game the Fitchburg boys faced off against a mixed Dirigo and Lynn squad and despite a good game the Rollstones took the game. The last game of the day saw the Essex Nine paired against the Dirigo and Lynn team. The Lynn/ Dirigo team took a 3 run lead early but the Essex guys were able to shake off the hour and a half lay off and the numerous hot dogs consumed to put together a 5-4 victory.
