Opening Weekend at the Farm

Join the Essex Base Ball Organization as we kick off our 2011 season at the beautiful Spencer Peirce Little Farm, 5 Littles Lane in Newbury, MA.

On Saturday May 14 the Essex Base Ball Club will take on the Brooklyn Atlantics, one of best vintage base ball teams on the East Coast, beginning at 11am. Later in the day a Mixed Nine will take on the Ipswich Brewers.

On Sunday May 15th the Lynn Live Oaks begin their 2011 campaign against the Bristol Blues of Bristol, RI. Two games will be played beginning at 12pm.

Come enjoy some Jim Jam Hot Dogs, some Ipswich Ale, and a great weekend of 1860’s base ball action. We will have an exhibit on display on 19th century baseball and will be selling our new baseball cards, tee shirts, and beer steins all weekend. Admission is free for Historic New England members, $5 for everyone else. For more information visit or contact Brian Sheehy at

See you at the farm!
