(Editor’s Note: The following info is from a press release issued by World Series Park this week.)
Fisher College of Boston will be playing a doubleheader at World Series Park in Saugus today (Friday, April 21) at 4 p.m. This will follow a Saugus High vs. Beverly game that starts at 1 p.m. Fisher’s opponent is Bryant & Stratton from Albany, N.Y. Another doubleheader will be played on Saturday, April 22 starting at noon.
Fisher has been having a winning season. They played two games against the University of Maine on March 25 at World Series Park, winning both games. They’ve won several games against the other teams in the Association of Independent Institutions (AII) Conference. They’ll be heading to North Carolina at the end of April and then on to Georgia in the first week in May for the Continental Athletic Conference Baseball Tournament.
“It’s so ironical that Fisher College is playing on our field this season,” World Series Park Superintendent Bob Davis said. “Back in 2010, they wanted to play all their home games here and were willing to pay for lights to be installed. However, that arrangement fell through, but we still got lights with funds we raised over 17 years. We had 52 night games last season and the lights look incredible.”
With school vacation starting next week, Saugus High School will be playing the following days: Tuesday, April 18 at 10 a.m. against Lynn English; Wednesday, April 19 at 10 a.m. against Winthrop; and Friday, April 21 at 1 p.m. against Beverly.
There is no admission charge for all Fisher games and Saugus High School games and there’s plenty of free parking. World Series Park offers great baseball for Saugus.
