Take family and friends out to the ballgame, nineteenth-century style. Three of the teams of the new Essex Base Ball Association, the Newburyport Clamdiggers, and the Portsmouth Rockinghams and visiting team Mudville Base Ball Club from Holliston 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.
Please call 978-462-2634 for more information or buy online.
