Watch 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 baseball 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.
