Baseball is back

Newburyport’s Mark Rowe and Amesbury’s Joel Bierley meet pregame
Jack Fehlner started for Newburypot

(Newburyport MA) It’s been nearly two years for the Cape Ann League.

Today baseball resumed and I decided to catch a look.

Didn’t keep score because it was only a Friday afternoon scrimmage at Pettingell Field.

But it was high school baseball between familiar foes Amesbury and Newburyport.

The players were not in game shirts and the scoreboard was not being used. The atmosphere was relaxed.

The scrimmage was the first chance to get back doing something the participants, including the coaches, missed badly.

Jeremy Lopez was the Amesbury starter

Baseball in April around here?  You know the weather will be a factor!  Today, we had cloudy (Will it rain?) mixed with sunshine (Is it June?).  The wind didn’t disappoint.  Gusty at times, causing outfielders to misjudge flies in right field.  The Clippers, in fact, collected two runs on a wind-influenced single to right.

Without rosters I won’t attempt to put names to all the pictures.  I am, however, planning to post the pictures from this blog entry onto my Instagram site (@mcclellandmiscellanea) and if I get identifications, I’ll edit them into captions on this entry.  Give me some help, would ya!

(All of the pictures above and below will enlarge considerably if you click on them.)
