The men from Dexter ventured out to Northville for a match on what ended up being a very nice day for base ball after spots of rain in the morning. After discussing home rules which include a hill and stairway in right field that make for interesting at bats for left handed strikers, we were ready to get the match underway.
Dexter started the match strong scoring a run in each of the first two innings, but ran into troubles after that. Northville came out striking well and kept it going until they had a comfortable lead. By the end of the fourth inning, the Eclipse were up by 9 runs and they never looked back. The Union men were able to score a couple more tallies in the later inning, but Northville held them off to grab the victory on this exciting day of historic base ball.
Thank you to our friends and hosts from the Eclipse, we look forward to seeing you in Dexter a month from now.
