The Lynn Live Oaks traveled to beautiful Fort Warren on Georges Island to take on the Ipswich Brewers this past Sunday. The Oaks were able to defeat the Brewers in both ends of the doubleheader. The Brewers made the first game close but were not able to keep their defense in the late innings. As always it was a pleasure to play the Brewers.
Join us Saturday July 23rd for a tripleheader at Spencer Peirce Little Farm in Newbury 11am-4pm and watch the Essex Base Ball Club take on the Melrose Pondfielders and Newtown Sandy Hook of CT. These fun vintage games feature underhand pitching, a ball bounced once and caught is an out, and no gloves are allowed. Beer samples are provided by Ipswich Ale. Grass field seating: bring blankets and lawn chairs, no reserved seating. …Admission is $5 but free for Historic New England Members.

After the games the action does not end, join us at 6:30 on Saturday, July 23, for a barbeque feast under the big top at the farm. This multi-course dinner pairs eight brews from Ipswich Ale and friends with innovative barbeque dishes from Tennessee’s Barbeque including their award-winning Memphis ribs, pulled pork, and chicken. After dinner join baseball historian Brian Sheehy to learn how brewers and baseball worked together in the past and meet the members of the Essex Base Ball Club.
