The Boston Beaneaters continued their dominance as they easily defeated the Boston Colonials this past Saturday 24-1. Behind seven stellar innings of work in which he only allowed one run and a handful of hits Drew Murphy got the win and Eric “Goose” Gosselin finished off the last two innings only allowing one hit. Just about every member of the Beaneaters had multiple hits but the offense was especially led by rookie Ryan Sifferlen who batted for the cycle. Despite the breaking of his beloved bat Aaron Horwitz spayed hits to all fields as well.
Come join members of New England’s vintage base ball community on Saturday August 8th at St Peters Field on Sherman St in Cambridge, MA from 10-2 as they attempt to play a few innings of base ball as it was played in 1861, 1876, 1886, 1893, and 1900. Join us as we also celebrate Cambridge’s Hall of Fame trio of John Clarkson, Tim Keefe, and Joe Kelley by wearing replica uniforms and with an exhibit highlighting their careers. The event free and is organized by the Essex Base Ball Organization and sponsored by Cambridge Discovery Days for more information on this event contact Brian Sheehy at firstname.lastname@example.org or check out our web site http://www.essexbaseball.wordpress.com
