This weekend the Neshanock are heading north to Rochester for the National Silver Ball Tournament at Genesee Country Village (third largest historical village in the United States). Two years ago the Neshanock reached the championship game before falling to the Cleveland Blues. Over the course of two days, the Neshanock will play four games, one against the aforementioned Blues, another against the Rochester (Michigan) Grangers and two against local teams - the Live Oaks and Rochesters.
We'll be back late Sunday night and the plan is to write something about the event by the middle of the week. I'm also planning on experimenting with a post or posts about one of the most exciting New Jersey base ball games of the 19th century - the August 18, 1865 championship match between the Eureka of Newark and the Brooklyn Atlantics. It probably won't be next week, but definitely before the end of August. Depending on how it works out, it could be the first in a series - so stay tuned!
