Here and There - mostly There

If this post and my recent accounts of Neshanock matches seem a little disoriented, there is good reason for that.  Last weekend, I missed Flemington's annual visit to Hoboken because Carol and I were in Massachusetts awaiting the birth of our second grandchild.  Although supposedly scheduled for June 20th, mother nature had other ideas so we came home for a few days, traveling back on June 25th when Henry George Zinn came into the world.  The return visit kept us in Massachusetts through Saturday afternoon so I also missed yesterday's match with the Bog Iron Boys of Allaire State Park in Princeton.  The two clubs were then to travel to Lakewood for another match, this time as part of an Ocean County event, but I'm guessing that contest was rained out.  Fortunately Mark "Gaslight" Granieri stepped to provide some photos and a brief summary of the Princeton affair.

As noted before the Bog Iron Boys are a new vintage club and not unlike the experience of modern expansion teams, it takes time to become competitive.  The Allaire club was also apparently shorthanded, all of which helped the Neshanock to get off to a 12-0 start after four innings, coasting from there to a 19-4 victory.  The win ended a seven game Flemington losing streaking, bringing the Neshanock back to within one game of .500 at 10-11.  After taking the upcoming holiday weekend off, Flemington will head to River Edge, New Jersey on July 11th for the annual Bergen County Historical Society match, for the second straight year taking on the Brooklyn Eckord and old friend, Eric Miklich.  Please join us.
