Pitching in to help breast cancer research

A day of vintage baseball at Spencer-Peirce-Little Farm in Newbury tomorrow will raise money for breast cancer research and art education.

Hosted by the Essex Base Ball Organization, Jan’s Pitch for Breast Cancer and the Arts will start at 10 a.m. and feature four games between teams based in Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire and Connecticut. Vintage baseball is played by 1864 rules, with wooden bats, authentic “lemon peel” baseballs and no gloves.

During and after the games, guests can sample food from local eateries, listen to live music and Joe Mac DJ, and enjoy beer from Ipswich Ale and wine from Mill River Winery. Tom Zappala of Merrimac will also be there to sell his new book, “The Cracker Jack Collection: Baseball’s Prized Players.”
