It was a beautiful evening and each team had an incredible collection of oldtime uniforms. This year pitted Team John Hancock versus Team Shapiro.
It was a great night to watch some baseball and catch up with some of my old friends, and even see one of my colleagues in action. My friend Anthony Galluccio, for Cambridge City Councillor and State Senator representing parts of Cambridge, Somerville, and the surrounding cities, suited up for the game in a classic Puerto Rican uniform:
The game brings together college players and baseball stars from Massachusetts, the country, and even abroad. Cambridge and Somerville were well-represented by Danny Nugent, Bobby Fournier, Billy Fitzgerald, James Likis, and Senator Galluccio. Red Sox legend Johnny Pesky was an honorary manager, taking pictures with fans and signing autographs. I even spotted sportswriter Dan Shaughnessy in the crowd, watching his son Sam play outfield for Team Shapiro.
The annual game is a great time for a great cause, and it seems to get bigger and more popular every year!
