Have You Heard of the Concord Baseball Club?
Has: wooden bats. Wants: new members.
The club folklore goes something like this: "On July 4, 1879, the Concord Base Ball Club played a team from Boston on the Concord Grounds, located directly behind the train Depot on Thoreau Street. In April 2011, this program was resurrected."
In its current form, the Concord Baseball Club appeals to men over the age of 45 who still haven't outgrown their love of the game. There are 22 such men on the current roster, and the Club is actively seeking new members.
According to a press release provided by the Club, the group gathers on the diamond at Emerson Field one or two mornings a week from early April through end of October. "It's a very relaxed, unstructured program that features long toss, batting practice, shagging fly balls and infield drills," the release said.
There is no fee involved. It just requires a baseball glove. Wooden bats and baseballs are provided.
