Saturday August 10th the Essex Base Ball Club will be taking on the Elkton Eclipse of MD at Spencer Peirce Little Farm. Elkton is one of the premier teams in the country so the game promises to be a tough one for Essex. After losing a tough one last year to them in MD Essex has had this game circled on their schedule all year. The day begins at 12pm with Elkton playing the Mudville Base Ball Club, followed by the Essex vs. Elkton matchup. The day is part of Fiber Revival at the farm and after the game members of the Essex and Elkton Nines will head to Woodmans in Essex for some fresh lobsters. Admission to the game is $6 for adult and $4 for kids.
On Sunday in Essex Base Ball Association action the Newburyport Clamdiggers will match up against the Lynn Live Oaks on Georges Island in Boston Harbor. The Clamdiggers are hoping to shake off the tough losses this past weekend to the Rockinghams.
