The four teams of the new Essex Base Ball Association, the Newburyport Clamdiggers, Lynn Live Oaks, Lowell Base Ball Nine, and the Portsmouth Rockinghams, play using 1860s rules. At these fun, historically accurate games, players pitch underhand, a ball bounced once and caught is an out, and no gloves are allowed. Snacks, baseballs, and cards are available for purchase. Grass field seating: bring blankets and lawn chairs, no reserved seating. Weather permitting, please call.
