Kate, Sean, cousin George and I traveled to Bristol, home of ESPN, to watch the Wachusett Dirt Dawgs take on the Bristol Blues in a Futures Collegiate Baseball League game at historic Muzzy Field earlier this week.
Muzzy Field has been used since 1912 and most notable was home to the AA Bristol Red Sox from 1972-1982. Also of note, Babe Ruth and the Yankees played a game there, as did other barnstorming MLB teams of that era.
I went to a game at Muzzy Field last year, and they’ve updated some things since then. Most notably, there are now areas on the first and third base lines that allow you to stand right near each dugout.
The Blues jumped all over the Dirt Dawgs early and won 9-4. After the game, we easily scored both lineup cards:
Both are the generic FCBL lineup cards, although they are quite nice with the FCBL logo watermark. The only real difference is that the Dirt Dawgs kept score on their card.
2016: 27 lineup cards (22 dugout/bullpen; 5 “official batting order”)
