JansPitch2015

Join us on October 17, 2015, as members of the vintage base ball community will be participating in the 3nd annual Jan’s Pitch for Breast Cancer and the Arts, to raise money for cancer research and to fund art education in inner city schools. Four games will take place at the beautiful Spencer-Peirce-Little Farm, featuring teams from all over New England and beyond. All money raised will go to breast cancer research and funding art projects at the Arlington School in Lawrence MA.

Jan’s Pitch for Breast Cancer and the Arts celebrates Jan Sheehy- a dedicated art teacher and mother of Essex Base Ball Club players Brian and Chris Sheehy- who lost her battle with breast cancer in April of 2013. In the past two years we have raised close to $9,000 that was donated to breast cancer research and art projects at the Arlington School.

Thank you,
