The Essex Base Ball Organization will host Jan’s Pitch for Breast Cancer and the Arts Oct. 19 at Spencer-Peirce-Little Farm in Newbury. The event honors Janice Sheehy, who lost her battle with breast cancer earlier this year. Sheehy was a dedicated art teacher in the Lawrence school system and mother to Essex Base Ball Organization President Brian Sheehy. The day will include four vintage base ball games beginning at 10 a.m. For more information, contact Sheehy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
