During the lovely month of June this year finding time between the rain to play base ball has proved a challenge but the clubs squeezed in three games in two days this past week. On Sunday a Essex/ Lynn squad matched up against a Melrose/ Fitchburg squad in Ayer, MA. The games were enjoyable and both split squads were able to claim one of the games played.
Despite several cancelations and the ever present threat of rain the annual Hot Dogs and Hits game was played Monday night to a good sized crowd. The home town Essex squad marched off to a quick lead and never looked back winning 8-2 in a special 12 inning extended game. As always the crowd enjoyed the game and the kids enjoyed playing before and after the game. We look forward to the event again next year.
