This Day in History

Newburyport Daily News

---- — On this day 100 years ago, it was announced that Dummer Academy would not be represented on the gridiron for the season due to “lack of material.” Citing how only two veterans of the previous year’s 11 players would be returning, Dummer instead decided to form a baseball team.
