This past Saturday the Essex Nine traveled to Hudson, MA to take on an alumni team from the High School. Unfortunately for the Essex Nine these inexperienced vintage ballist were experienced modern baseball players and great athletes. Most players new to the vintage game shy away from catching the ball on the fly but these players picked up the style of play in less than an inning and made some great plays to take away hits from the Essex players. Cappy made the mistake of trying out some fair fouls early in the game and the Hudson players took some notes and within no time were ripping them left and right. It was a fun day that saw the Essex Nine fall in defeat 14-6. We would like to thank the alumni for hosting the game and hope that they raised some money for scholarships.
The Essex Nine is back to action Saturday August 28th at 12pm on Georges Island where they will take on the Park Rangers. For more information on how to get to the island http://www.islandalliance.org
