Harrisburg, Pa. - The Potomacs played a spirited three inning exhibition match with the Mechanicsburg Nine, a newly formed vintage base ball club following a Harrisburg Senators vs. Akron Aeros game on June 6, 2010 at Metro Bank Park on City Island in Harrisburg, PA.

With heavy rain earlier in the day threatening to thwart the match, the sun finally made its appearance and glorious weather reigned for the remainder of the day. Despite a strong effort by the Potomac side, aided by three ballists from the local Washington Fire Company #1, the Mechanicsburg nine ruled the day, winning by a score of 10-3.

Despite the disappointing outcome, a most satisfying day of base ball was had by all. The Potomac club was most grateful for the hospitality shown to them by the home nine and we look forward to future matches with the gents from Mechanicsburg.
