Base Ball at the Hagley Museum

This past Saturday, the Neshanock traveled to the scenic Hagley Museum in Wilmington, Delaware to take on the Diamond State Club which recreates Delaware's first base ball team formed in the fall of 1865.  The vintage version played its first season in 2009 and has quickly become a very competitive team which has played a number of tight games with Flemington.  Once again the Neshanock had to go deep into its bench for an account of the game, but Chris "Lowball" Lowry was more than up for the challenge providing the below pictures and a brief summary of Flemington's 14-8 victory.

Danny "Batman" Shaw pitched for Flemington and did a find job of keeping the opposing strikers off balance

Balanced defense and offense were key features in Flemington's victory including some find outfield play by Chris "Sideshow" Nunn

With the win, the Neshanock improve to 19-11 on the season.  Next weekend Flemington will make a rare north Jersey appearance on Saturday to play a local team in South Orange and then travel to Philadelphia on Sunday for the Philadelphia Naval Yard Classic.
