This past weekend the Essex boys traveled to Freeport Maine to take on the Dirigo Base Ball Club of Augusta Maine. Both of the games were close affairs but the Essex Nine was able to hold on in both matches. The Essex BBC would like to thank the Dirigo boys for two great games and the Freeport Historical Society for putting together such a nice event.
Monday marked the 10th anniversary of the Essex Base Ball Club when we participated in our 10th History, Hot Dogs, and Hits in Danvers, MA. The game saw the Melrose squad a little short on numbers but we were able to mix things up a little and play a fine game that went into extra innings with each side scoring 2 runs. The game finished in a tie but fun was had by all.
