In September of 1866 the mighty Concord Kearsarge matched up in a series of matches against the Portsmouth Rockinghams, and in both instances the boys from Concord came out victorious. Fast forward 149 years later to Leary Field in Portsmouth for the rematch sponsored by the Portsmouth Athenaeum. In the first match the game was a tug of war affair in which both sides exchanged the lead back and forth until the bottom of the 9th when the Rockingham pitcher walked in winning run securing the win for the Kearsarge. In game two in much the same way the game went back and forth and saw the lead change hands several times but in the end the Kearsarge held on for the victory. We would like to thank the people of Portsmouth for coming out and the Portsmouth Athenaeum for sponsoring the game.
