Lowell BBC vs Portsmouth Rockinghams
Take family and friends out to the ballgame, nineteenth-century style. The four teams of the Essex Base Ball Association, the Newburyport Clamdiggers, Lowell Base Ball Club, Portsmouth Rockinghams, and the Lynn Live Oaks play using 1864 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.
In partnership with Essex Base Ball Association and Ipswich Ale Brewery.
