Oldtime Baseball Game Full Of Remembrance And Hope

Something was definitely missing from Monday’s Oldtime Baseball Game in Cambridge, MA.

It wasn’t players, nor equipment, nor the fans (several hundred, if not a thousand, came out.) It wasn’t runs – though those did take a while to show up, as the Abbot Financial Management team overcame five scoreless innings to win the 19th edition of the charity game, 6-0.
