Jan’s Pitch for Breast Cancer and The Arts on October 19 to benefit Susan G. Komen, Lawrence Art Students

Newbury, MA – August 26, 2013: On Saturday October 19, the Essex Base Ball Organization will host Jan’s Pitch for Breast Cancer and The Arts – a day of vintage base ball, great food, live music and more at Spencer Peirce Little Farm in Newbury, MA.

The event honors Janice Sheehy, who lost her two-and-a-half year battle with breast cancer earlier this year. Sheehy was a talented and dedicated art teacher in the Lawrence, MA school system – and mother to Brian Sheehy, president of the Essex Base Ball Organization, and Chris Sheehy, captain of the Lowell Base Ball Club.

Proceeds from Jan’s Pitch will be split between Susan G. Komen For The Cure, the world’s largest breast cancer organization, and The Janice Sheehy Art Fund, established to send students from the Arlington (Middle) School in Lawrence to the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, and to provide these students supplies to hold their own art exhibit.

The day will include a triple-header of vintage base ball games, featuring players from teams based in Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire and Connecticut. Vintage base ball is played according to the game’s original 19th-century rules – with wooden bats, authentic ‘lemon peel’ baseballs, and no gloves. During and after the games visitors can sample food from local eateries, listen to live music, enjoy delicious beers from the Ipswich Ale ‘Tap Truck,’ and much more.

Restaurants, food vendors, and musical acts that would like to participate in this event should contact Brian Sheehy at 978.790.5707, or via email at historyball@yahoo.com, no later than Wednesday, September 4. Space is limited and offered in a first come, first served basis.
